A Sombre Eid al-Adha in Delhi as Kashmiris Observe Bakra Eid Away From Home

Kashmiri students celebrated Eid-al-Adha away from home in full zeal at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi on August 12, 2019. The gathering witnessed the presence of authors, journalists and other eminent personalities who joined the Kashmiris as a mark of support and solidarity. Jammu and Kashmir roads are filled with barricades and military personnel and there’s a strict curfew in place post the abrogation of Article 370. Here are some pictures from the gathering…
