The shutdown was also called to show resentment against Indian government for harassing Rohingya refugees and threatening to forcibly deport them at the behest of RSS. “This is really unfortunate that India, which calls itself as the largest democracy, is harassing and threatening to forcibly deport Rohingya Muslims to Myanmar, where hundreds of them are being killed every day and surprisingly the United Nations and human rights organizations have maintained a criminal silence, which is really unfortunate and uncalled for,” said Pervaiz Ahmed Sheikh, President of Anjuman-e-Islamia Bhadarwah. Shutdown is also being observed in Banihal town of Ramban district. All shops and other business establishments remained closed in Banihal town while traffic was off the road to protest the killing and persecution of Muslims in the Rakhine state of Myanmar.
