Protesters clash with forces in Indian Kashmir

By AIJAZ HUSSAIN (AP) – 13 hours ago

SRINAGAR, India — Hundreds of anti-India protesters clashed with police and paramilitary soldiers after Friday prayers despite a rigid curfew being reimposed in most of Kashmir following weeks of unrest that has killed 15 people.

People were not allowed to attend prayers at Srinagar’s main Jamia mosque for a third successive Friday, but authorities did not stop residents from attending prayers at smaller local mosques in the disputed Himalayan region’s main city.

People who attended Friday prayers at mosques joined anti-India protests afterward. Hundreds of protesters threw rocks at police and paramilitary soldiers who then fired tear gas to quell the protests, a police officer said on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to talk to reporters.

Clashes also broke out Friday in Anantnag, Kupwara and Baramulla towns where government forces fired tear gas to disperse the rock-throwing protesters, police said.

No injuries were immediately reported.

The mostly Muslim region, where resistance to rule by predominantly Hindu India is strong, has been under a rolling curfew for the past three weeks after anti-India street protests and clashes surged.

The tension in the region — divided between India and Pakistan and claimed by both — is reminiscent of the late 1980s, when protests against New Delhi’s rule sparked an armed conflict that has killed more than 68,000 people, mostly civilians.

Separatist politicians and militants want to carve out a separate homeland or merge with Pakistan.

On Friday, thousands of police and paramilitary soldiers — dressed in riot gear and armed with assault rifles — patrolled Srinagar, the main city in the Indian-held Kashmir. They asked people to stay at home, said Javaid Ahmed, a local resident.

The government decision followed a call for protests by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, the region’s main grouping of separatist parties. An earlier curfew had been eased last weekend so that residents could celebrate a Muslim festival.

But on Thursday, the unrest picked up again, when thousands of people held streets protests chanting "We want freedom" and "Go India, go back" in Srinagar.

Clashes erupted as government forces fired tear gas to disperse rock-throwing protesters in Srinagar and some other towns, injuring 16 protesters and 13 troops, the officer said.

On Friday, shops, schools and government offices were closed and public buses stayed off the roads in the region.
