Srinagar, Feb 27(ANI): Jammu and Kashmir Police used force to disperse a religious procession of separatists on Saturday in Srinagar.
The activists of Democratic Political Movement (DPM) were prevented from carrying out the procession on the occasion of Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi, the anniversary of the birth of Prophet Mohammad.
Though the activists claimed the procession was purely religious, the police thwarted the procession.
"Today we are taking out a procession. It is purely a religious procession. We have been taking it out since 1986," said Muhammad Shafi Rather, a senior DPM leader, Democratic Political Movement (DPM).
Taking out a procession on Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi is banned by the Jammu and Kashmir Government. (ANI)
