Appeals parents to stop wards from pelting stones, clerics asked not to make provocative speeches
Apprehending violence after Friday prayers, Police has appealed people to stop their children from taking part in stone pelting besides asking clerics not to deliver provocative speeches.
A police statement, issued in this regard, states: “It has been observed for last few Fridays that after the culmination of congregational prayers miscreants force people to assemble on the chowks and roads thus obstructing the normal traffic. Many a times these gatherings are manipulated to pelt stones upon the police/security force deployments.”
“In order to avoid such situations the parents are requested not to allow their children to take part in such activities. Youth are advised not to fell prey to such machinations. The Imams and Khateebs are also requested not to deliver provocative speeches so that the situation is not exploited by vested interests,” the statement adds.
