A complete shutdown is being observed across Kashmir valley on Saturday over beef ban order by the state High Court.

The shutdown call has been given by all the frontline separatist leaders and parties including Syed Ali Geelani and Mohammad Yasin Malik.

All shops, business establishments, schools, colleges and government offices are closed and public transport is off the roads.

In order to "maintain peace and tranquillity", authorities have deployed police and paramilitary forces in large numbers at vital places.

Authorities have also imposed strict restrictions in many areas of Srinagar city to stop protests against beef ban.

Locals from down town area of the city informed Rising Kashmir over phone that "curfew like" restrictions are in place with heavy deployment of police and CRPF personnel.

Police sources said that the step has been taken after taking Yesterday's violent protests into consideration.

Fearing disturbance in Law and order against the High Court judgment to uphold colonial-era law banning cow slaughter and the sale of beef, the authorities Saturday imposed strict curfew in several parts of Valley including Old City (Downtown) Maisuma area of Srinagar. A complete shutdown was also observed in Valley in view of the court's order.
The impact of shutdown call given by separatists was seen in major parts of valley where shops, business establishments, educational institutes and offices remain locked down.
The authorities continued to put under detention Hurriyat leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Shabir Ahmed Shah, Maulana Abbas Ansari, Engineer Hilal Ahmad War, Zafar Akbar Bhat, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, Syed Salim Geelani, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Showkat Ahmed Bakhshi and Qazi Yasir Ahmad in their houses and police stations to prevent them from leading the demonstrations.
Hurriyat leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Shabir Ahmed Shah, Aasiya Andrabi and Zafar Akbar Butt, in their statements hailed the Kashmiri people for protesting against the anti-Muslim court verdict. They said that the Kashmiris would not accept such decrees that amounted to interference in their religious affairs.

Evokes sharp reactions in the State. Prompting calls for mass slaughter on Eid to shutdowns, the directive has put the State on the edge again

The Jammu and Kashmir High Court's direction to enforce the 83-year-old cow-slaughter ban evoked sharp reactions in the State on Thursday. Prompting calls for mass cow slaughter on Eid to shutdowns, the directive has put the volatile State on the edge again.

Hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) petition, the court on Wednesday directed enforcement of the ban on the sale of beef across the State.

According to a 1932 ruling documented under Section 298-A and 298-B of the Ranbir Penal Code (RPC), cow slaughter was banned during the Maharaja's times and has been respected since then.

The majority of Muslims in the State, to respect the sensibilities of other religions, have voluntarily been consuming less beef than in other Muslim-dominated areas of the country. Srinagar consumes a negligible amount of beef and prefers mutton, with no cow slaughterhouses within the municipal limits.

A Division Bench, comprising Justice Dhiraj Singh Thakur and Justice Janak Raj Kotwal, directed the Director-General of Police "to ensure that appropriate directions were given to all SSPs, SPs and SHOs of all districts and Police Stations in Jammu and Kashmir that there shall be no sale of beef across the State."

The J&K High Court Bar Association decided to challenge Section 298A and B of the Ranbir Penal Code, banning the sale of beef. Both separatist and mainstream parties reacted sharply to the court direction. The separatists are organising a shutdown and protests on Friday and Saturday in the State.

Mutahida Majlis Ulama chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq called an emergency meeting of 17 religious groups to discuss the issue. "The government, the administration and the judiciary are unnecessarily intervening in the religious affairs of Muslim-majority Jammu and Kashmir, which causes resentment and displeasure among the masses," a joint statement said.

"It is a politically motivated direction that may have the worst implications in Jammu and Kashmir. It is an eye opener for those who propagate India as being a so-called secular and democratic state," said JKLF chief Yasin Malik, who has called a shutdown on Saturday.

Syed Ali Geelani, heading a faction of the Hurriyat, called a shutdown, while describing the court direction as "motivated to create communal tension."

Interestingly, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spokesman Mehboob Beigh has also criticised the court direction. "Nobody has a right to dictate what people should eat. Ban on the sale of beef in Kashmir was in vogue during the Maharaja's times. It is an irony that despite being a Muslim-majority State, this ban was in place. The court order, reiterating the ban is debatable."

The Ranbir Penal Code, 1932, bans slaughter of bovine animals in the State. Violation of the law can attract imprisonment of up to 10 years and fine up to five times the price of the slaughtered animal.
