The curfew was imposed after the protests fearing communal backlash

People led large anti-Pakistan protests in places including Jewel Chowk, Purani Mundi, Rehari, Shaktinagar, Pacca Danga, Janipur, Gandhinagar and Bakshinagar areas in Jammu city. Violent clashes were also reported in Gujjar Nagar area where some vehicles were damaged due to stone-pelting. No major clashes took place due to swift action by the police. The protests were led by the Bajrang Dal, the Shiv Sena and the Dogra Front with raising of anti-Pakistani and anti-terrorist slogans.

People came out on the streets and burned Pakistani flags. The protests have reportedly left around 40 people injured including DIG Vivek Gupta. Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industries (JCCI) had called for a Bandh on Thursday against the Pulwama terrorist attack. The Bandh has received the support of all political and social organisations. The curfew was imposed after the protests fearing communal backlash and the Army has been called in by the administration to maintain law and order situation. The army has been conducting flag march to maintain peace.

“We have imposed curfew in Jammu city as a precautionary measure,” said Deputy Commissioner of Jammu Ramesh Kumar. In the wake of the violent protests, IGP Jammu has urged people not to get provoked and maintain social harmony.
