In Jammu and Kashmir, instead of celebrating Eid some stone-pelters in south Kashmir targeted security forces. As per the report, security forces turned to shelling of tear gas and firing pellets after scores of protesters attempted to march towards the main chowk.

Clashes were also reported in the Sopore, Anantnag, Rajpora, Shopian and Safkadal areas in and on the fringes of the city. Geelani had earlier this week once again asked the Kashmiri youth not to chant pro IS slogans or wave its flag as it went against what he said was indigenous and just freedom struggle of the Kashmiri people. After about 20 minutes, the crowd dispersed.

Clashes between citizens and security forces deployed in the restive Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir continued even on the day of Eid on Monday (26 June), but state officials claimed that the celebrations were largely peaceful.

Instead, an advisory said police personnel could offer Eid prayers in mosques in district police lines in Srinagar.

More than 50,000 people gathered for prayers at the Hazratbal shrine and over 40,000 at the Eidgah mosque. Indian police didn't allow them to come out of the prayer ground.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday conveyed his greetings on the occasion of Eid in a video message and said he hope that the festival will help in bringing peace, understanding, brotherhood and happiness in Kashmir.

Kashmir witnessed one of its worst summers previous year when more than 120 people lost their lives during violent street protests, sparked by the killing of another Hizbul Mujahideen leader, Burhan Wani.

Rebel groups demanding either Kashmir's independence or merger with Pakistan have fought police and troops for decades.

Kashmir has been divided between nuclear rivals India and Pakistan since their partition in 1947 when the British vacated the sub continent.

The Indian authorities had imposed restrictions in several areas in Srinagar city and major towns in the disputed Himalayan region.
