Kashmiri Medical Representatives (MRs) attend a demonstration in Srinagar. Hundreds of MRs today held a protest due to a shortage of life-saving medicines in the restive Kashmir valley. The MRs say the shortage is the result of an economic blockade of the Muslim-dominated region by Hindu protesters, who are reacting against the government’s decision to back down from allotting land to a Hindu shrine trust.
