JAMMU, AUG 19:- A demonstrator holds the Indian national flag after she climbed a tower during a protest in Jammu August 19, 2008. In the Hindu-dominated Jammu region, thousands of Hindu protesters courted arrest on Monday to protest against what they called a delay in handing over land to Hindu pilgrims. The crisis began after the state government promised to give forest land to a trust that runs Amarnath, a cave shrine visited by Hindu pilgrims. Many Muslims were enraged. The government then rescinded its decision, which in turn angered Hindus in Jammu who attacked trucks carrying supplies to the Kashmir valley and often blocked the region’s highway, the only surface link with the rest of India.
