    SHOPIAN (Jammu & Kashmir, India), Sept 11:

    Miscreants pelted stones at the houses of some Sikh residents of Shopian town before being chased away by women in the locality, police said on Wednesday. Some troublemakers allegedly pelted stones at seven houses belonging to members of the Sikh community late Tuesday evening in Shopian town, damaging windowpanes, said a local, Charanjit Singh. But women from the neighbourhood came out in numbers and chased away the miscreants, he added.

    "Our houses suffered some damage but we are safe. Our neighbours came to our rescue," said Singh, who works as a 'sewadar' at the local gurdwara. He, however, denied reports of any attack on a place of worship. A youth lost his life in firing on Wednesday by security personnel during a protest in Shopian.

    The town has been on the boil since Saturday when four persons were killed after being fired upon by CRPF personnel following an alleged attack on their camp. Meanwhile, responding to the events in Shopian, opposition Peoples' Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti said it was surprising that incidents of communal violence followed episodes of human rights violations in the state.

    "There were sectarian clashes in Budgam after the Gool firing incident and, last night, there was an attack on Sikh community members in Shopian. "It seems attempts are being made to divert attention away from the killings on Saturday," she said.

    Hardline Hurriyat Conference leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani said the incident involving Sikhs was an attempt to give a new twist to the protests over Saturday's killings in Shopian.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
