Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Sunday called for a shutdown on October 19 to protest the death of Zahid Rasool Bhat who succumbed to his injuries today at a hospital in New Delhi.
A spokesman said that JKLF condemns the killing of Zahid and attacks on Muslims in India over the rumours of beef-eating.
He appealed people to observe a shutdown tomorrow to register their protest against the killing of Bhat.
Bhat had sustained 70 per cent injuries after a truck in which he was sleeping along with two other Kashmiris was set ablaze by a mob in Udhampur on Oct 9.
He passed away at noon today at Delhi’s Safdurjung hospital.
