In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K), complete shutdown is being observed on Tuesday, to commemorate the 12th martyrdom anniversary of senior Hurriyat leader, Sheikh Abdul Aziz.  

Call for the strike has been given by All Parties Hurriyat Conference.   

Sheikh Abdul Aziz was shot dead by Indian troops while he was leading a march from Srinagar to the Line of Control on August 11, 2008 against the economic blockade of the Kashmir Valley by Hindu extremists of Jammu. 

The veteran Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Gilani while paying tributes to the martyred Hurriyat leader appealed to the masses to give a befitting tribute to the heroes of the freedom movement.

In order to prevent anti-India protests on the martyrdom anniversary of Sheikh Abdul Aziz, Indian authorities have extended restrictions in Srinagar for another week to confine people to their houses.
