All of IOK is now an open air prison: Shehla Rasheed » Kashmir Media Service

New Delhi, August 16 (KMS): Former Jawaharlal Nehru University student leader and noted Kashmiri social activist, Shehla Rasheed Shora, has said that all of occupied Kashmir is a jail right now – an open-air prison.

Shehla Rasheed in a post on social networking site facebook wrote, “The authorities, some reports say, are even jailing children of class seven – this is not normal. Not anywhere, not by any standards.”

“Ali Saifuddin, a Kashmiri singer, had to come all the way to Delhi in order to purchase essential medicine for his grandmother. People who have come from there, I have asked them, are you able to find, say, baby food? They are saying, we are able to get it but with great difficulty,” Shehla Rasheed wrote.

“This is the situation with baby food – the most basic and vital of nourishment. Can you imagine how difficult such a life must be?” she asked in her post.
