He further said that the Zainapora area used to be a hotbed of militancy but now, it has become ‘terror-free’ due to the actions of security forces and police. “People now enjoy the cinemas here which have been opened recently,” he said, adding that even people come to see the cinema in such numbers that it may now require more space.

“Cinema has also been opened in Srinagar, but there will still be some people who will not digest these things,” he said.
