Srinagar: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for a complete shutdown in Jammu and Kashmir on August 15.

Calling for a shutdown, the JRL – comprising of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik, has appealed to the people to observe it as a “black day” .

“An atmosphere of fear has been created in Kashmir through frisking and harassment of people at the checkpoints established by the forces in the run-up to August 15,” the JRL said.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
