After a week, curfew was relaxed for three hours on Thursday morning in Bhaderwah town of Jammu and Kashmir’s Doda district, officials told Press Trust of India (PTI).

The curfew was imposed over attempts of creating communal tension by some elements, they added.

As per the report, shops and business establishments reopened around 9 am, immediately after authorities announced the relaxation in the curfew that was imposed on 9 June following communal tension triggered by the remarks on Prophet Mohammad by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Nupur Sharma.

The curfew had earlier been relaxed for two hours on Wednesday.

Deputy Commissioner, Doda, Vikas Sharma, who along with SSP Doda Abdul Qayoom is camping at Bhadarwah for the last seven days to monitor the situation, appealed to the people to maintain communal harmony and assured them all restrictions will be lifted soon.

“The curfew was imposed as a precautionary measure to avoid any untoward incident but I am glad residents of this beautiful valley behaved in a mature manner,” he said.

“I hope they will not fell prey to nefarious designs of a handful of miscreants and will maintain age-old communal harmony and mutual brotherhood for their better future,” Sharma said.

“We have already lifted the restrictions in Doda, Thathri, and Gandoh towns and I assure if people here behave well, the remaining restriction will be eased soon as during this peak season of Tourism, we want to see visitors not the security forces,” he added.
