A protest march was taken out in the Kashmir University and Islamic University campus against a social media post of a non-local student of the National Institute of Technology that has allegedly hurt religious sentiments.

The march was taken out in the Kashmir university complex, located in the Hazratbal area of the city, after the Friday prayers.

The march was peaceful and the protesters raised slogans in favour of Prophet Mohammad. A similar protest was held at the Islamic university in Awantipora.

They said the protesters, including female students, were not allowed to move outside the main gate of the university. They later dispersed peacefully.

Protests were held at the NIT, Srinagar on Tuesday over the social media post that has allegedly hurting religious sentiments. The protesters demanded stringent action against the non-local student, who has been sent home on leave.
