Srinagar was under tight security amid separatist calls for a strike to protest the concert with renowned conductor Mehta, accusing the event of distracting the public away from the problems that Kashmir faces. Civil society groups organized an alternative concert in central Srinagar, where they were also showing photographs and giving speeches meant to highlight past years of violence and instability in the region.
