    He led thousands of people in a march after Friday prayers, demanding the withdrawal of Indian forces from the India-administrated part of Kashmir.

    India and Pakistan have fought two of their three wars over the predominantly Muslim Himalayan region, which is claimed in full by both countries.

    India has an estimated 700,000 soldiers in Kashmir to counter groups that have fought Indian rule since 1989.

    More than 40,000 people have been killed and over 200,000 displaced in the uprising and subsequent Indian crackdown.
