Despite unrest in Kashmir showing signs of fatigue, the separatist camp has extended the strike till 10 November. They have also asked people to take "necessary measures" to thwart the burning of educational institutions.

The camp, which is spearheading the 117-day long ongoing unrest in the Valley, asked students, parents, elders of the society, masjid and other committees to march towards schools in their respective localities on 7 November and organise "school safety day" from 11am to 4 pm.

Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik released a statement which said,

Take necessary measures at local level to thwart the ongoing targeting of our schools
