Kashmir remained tense on Friday, following separatists' call for post-prayers protests against the Kaunsar Nag Yatra, which the government halted from the Aharbal route in the Kashmir valley on Thursday.
Hundreds of protesters hurled stones in parts of Srinagar, Anantnag and Sopore districts at security forces after the prayers.
Hardline Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Geelani had called for "peaceful protests" on Friday.
"The new yatra destination will destroy the fragile environment and water resources of Kashmir," said Geelani, who has also called for a Valley-wide shutdown against the yatra on Saturday.
"It is a political decision made under the pressure of the communal minded people and its only purpose is the cultural aggression on Kashmir," he added.
Geelani accused chief minister Omer Abdullah of "being only concerned with his chair and not caring about the negative effects of this decision in haste".
