Republic Day

Today is the Republic Day of India, the day which celebrates the passing of the Indian Constitution on January 26, 1950. Large parts of Srinagar has been under tight restrictions the whole weekend, as the fear of anti-government protests and militant activities is growing. Today celebrations will take place at Bakhshi Stadium, which is guarder by a three-tier security ring.

Amidst the increased tension on the subcontinent, Gilani, the PM of Pakistan, sent his well-wishes to his Indian colleagues and promised to take “this opportunity to reiterate our commitment to resolve peacefully all outstanding issues between the two countries to usher in an era of peace, progress and prosperity for the people of the subcontinent”.
