Braid-cutting: NC women’s wing stages protest, demands resignation of government


Srinagar, National Conference (NC) on Tuesday staged a protest in Srinagar to protest against the alleged failure of the government to prevent braid-chopping of women in Kashmir valley.

Over a dozen women workers of the NC marched from Nawa-e-Subh headquarters of the party to Polo View to protest the government’s alleged failure to ensure security of women.

The protesters were led by MLA Habba Kadal Shameema Firdous.

Talking to reporters, Firdous demanded the resignation of the Chief Minister for “failing to provide security to women in the valley.”

“It is the government’s responsibility to provide security to everyone, including women,” she said, adding that women were feeling unsafe even after inside the four walls of their homes.
