Protest during day, work at night: Geelani

As per the schedule, only two days — September 19 and 22 — have been exempted from strikes and protests by the Geelani-led Hurriyat faction that is spearheading the ongoing agitation in the Valley.

The striking point in the protest schedule is that the hardliners have asked the people of the Valley to carry out day to day activities from 7pm to 7am on strike days.

"All business establishments, including manufacturing units, flour mills and cement factories will remain open from 7pm to 7am," the statement issued by the Hurriyat said.
It also said shops and other business establishments can do normal business during night hours. Transporters can ply normally during night, it added.

Geelani has called for a march to the security forces' camps on September 21 for holding peaceful protests to highlight their demands.The Kashmir Valley has been rocked by violent protests since June 11 following the killing of a teenager during alleged firing by security forces here.
