Restrictions Imposed In Downtown Srinagar Against Alleged Attempts To Abrogate Article 35-A

SRINAGAR, INDIA - AUGUST 12: A Kashmiri girl rides bicycle in front of closed shops during restrictions in a downtown area on August 11, 2017 in Srinagar, India. Authorities imposed restrictions in parts of downtown Srinagar as separatists called a shutdown in Kashmir against a petition in the Supreme Court of India seeking abrogation of Article 35-A, which confers special rights on Jammu and Kashmirs permanent residents. The petition was filed in 2014 by a Non Government Organisation (NGO) We The Citizens seeking that the article be struck down. The petition alleges that the state government, under the guise of the article, discriminates against non-residents in matters of government jobs or buying property, according to news reports.(Photo by Waseem Andrabi/Hindustan Times )
