Curfew enters 2nd month in IOK » Kashmir Media Service

Indian journalist belies Delhi’s claim

Srinagar, September 05 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, normal life remains paralysed with humanitarian crisis aggravating with each passing day as the strict curfew and communication blackout imposed by the Indian authorities entered 2nd month, today.

The occupation authorities continue to clamp curfew and snap communication services including internet, mobile, landline telephones and TV channels in the Kashmir valley and five districts of Jammu since 5th August when Indian government repealed the special status of occupied Kashmir. The residents are suffering immensely as Kashmir valley remains cut off from the rest of the world since then. People are facing acute shortage of daily commodities and life-saving medicines.

Noted Indian journalist, Nirupama Subramanian, who recently returned to India from occupied Kashmir while belying New Delhi’s claim said that the situation in the valley was far from being normal. In a series of tweets, she narrated how people of occupied Kashmir were angry with the Government of India. She said there is no politician in the valley who can sell Delhi’s scheme to the people.

A report published by Al Jazeera said that thousands of people have been detained and tortured by the Indian forces’ personnel in the curfew-hit Kashmir valley and Muslim majority districts of Jammu region. The report citing locals said many young men have been detained by the Indian forces, while their parents are clueless about their location and well-being.

Meanwhile, Hurriyat activists through posters and handbills posted in streets of occupied Kashmir have said that the people of Kashmir will never allow anyone to come and bring Hindutva along in the territory. The leaders said this in response to the announcement of Maharashtra government that it plans to buy land in the occupied territory.

In Bhimber, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, a big protest demonstration was organised by political, social and human rights groups against the Indian brutalities in occupied Kashmir. The demonstration was led by Hurriyat leaders and activists including Engineer Mushtaq Mehmood, Advocate Mehmood Qureshi, Muhammad Aslam Malik and Majid Irshad of Pak-Kashmir Solidarity Forum.
