Jihadis attack Hindus and Security forces in Kashmir, shout Anti-India slogans on Eid

SRINAGAR, India : Indian forces imposed an indefinite curfew Friday in a town in the Indian portion of Kashmir after firing tear gas and warning shots to disperse groups of Muslims and Hindus who clashed during Eid celebrations, police said.
The army began enforcing the curfew as rival groups attacked each other with stones and sticks, and burned several shops and vehicles in Kishtwar, a town 200 kilometers (125 miles) southeast of Srinagar, the main city in Indian-controlled Kashmir.
Several people were hurt in the clashes, said one police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to talk to reporters.
The trouble erupted after Hindus objected to Muslims shouting raising pro-independence slogans on the Eid al-Fitr holiday, which caps the fasting month of Ramadan.
State Home Minister Sajad Ahmed Kitchloo, who is from the area, escaped unhurt when his motorcade was attacked with stones by the clashing groups.
The state director-general of police, Ashok Prasad, said "the situation is serious and our priority is not to allow the situation to escalate.... We are trying to enforce the curfew strictly."
Anti-India feelings run deep in Kashmir, where about a dozen rebel groups have been fighting against Indian rule since 1989. More than 65,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed.
The rebel groups have largely been suppressed by Indian troops in recent years, and resistance is now principally expressed through street protests.
Indian forces also used tear gas and pellet guns to quell thousands of stone-throwing protesters who took to the streets after the special Eid prayers in Srinagar.
Dozens of protesters, police and paramilitary officers were injured in the clashes, another police officer said.
The protesters chanted "We Want Freedom," and "Down with India" as they marched through the streets of Srinagar.
The injured included 19 police and paramilitary soldiers, said Kishore Prasad, a spokesman for the Central Reserve Police force.
Several separatist leaders were put under house arrest on Thursday night to stop them from leading the protests ahead of the holiday, and shops and businesses were closed in the region.
Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan. They have fought two wars over its control since they won independence from Britain in 1947.
The Indian portion of Kashmir is the only Muslim majority state in a predominantly Hindu country.
