Bajrang Dal demands Pheran Ban in the valley; cites security reasons

Bajrang Dal has demanded the ban on Pheran, a traditional Kashmiri attire that is worn by the people over their clothes and is usually spotted during winters. Bajrang Dal has claimed that the Pheran is being misused by the terrorists and is being used to carry bombs and guns, in order to attack the security forces in Jammu & Kashmir. National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah has hit out at the Bajrang Dal for their demand. Bajrang Dal leader stated that 99% of the terror attacks were done while the terrorists were wearing the Pheran and they cannot be identified. He further adds on that the Pheran covers them completely and thus it becomes difficult to find out whether they are hiding something beneath or not.
