Deputy Commissioner Kishtwar Angrez Singh Rana and SSP Kishtwar Rajinder Gupta personally supervised the security arrangements and remained present at Eidgah till all the people left and later followed the Eid procession till it concluded.
As per the centuries old tradition, people in the form of procession reached at the shrine of 17th century Sufi saint Hazrat Shah Mohammad Fareed-ud-Din Baghdadi. But despite warning from the imam Jamia Masjid Kishtwar Farooq Ahmed Kichloo, few miscreants raised pro-azadi, pro-Zakir Mossa and anti India slogans during the procession. Sources said that Kishtwar police is scrutinizing the video and photographic evidences of the Eid procession where some anti-national elements raised anti-India slogans and provoked the youths to create panicky situation in the town at a time when majority of the peace loving people of Kishtwar were celebrating Eid with religious fervor and the action of the accused tantamount to disturbing the Eid festival beside to vitiate the peace on the eve of the holly festival of the Muslim community.
A police sources while confirming to "Early Times" said that there was no question of not registering any FIR against the miscreants involved in raising anti-India slogans during the procession that followed Eid Nimaz which was attended by more than 3000 people who had arrived from various areas of Kishtwar. Sources said that these miscreants by involving in such act tried to create unrest among the people of Kishtwar and added that Kishtwar police is taking its time in identifying the real culprits behind raising such slogans. However no arrest has been made till last reports came in. Meanwhile imam Jamia Masjid Kishtwar Farooq Ahmed Kichloo also spoke on Article 35 A and urged upon all the communities including Hindu, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians of Jammu and Kashmir to support the struggle for safeguarding the article.
