Civil disobedience continues in IOK

Srinagar, November 13 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyat organizations have emphasised that the people of Kashmir are determined to resist BJP government’s designs of robbing Jammu and Kashmir of its civilizational identity and Muslim character.

Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League, Tehreek-e-Wahdat-e-Islami, Young Mens League and Muslim Khawateen Markaz in their separate statements said that the Kashmiris would continue liberation struggle till it reached its logical conclusion. They maintained that people would resist India’s illegal occupation with complete unity and determination and New Delhi would not succeed in forcing them into submission.

People continue to stage silent protest as a mark of civil disobedience in the Kashmir Valley against India’s anti-Kashmir moves by downing their shutters and staying away from schools and offices. Restrictions under Section 144 continue to remain enforced amid massive presence of Indian forces with public transport away from the roads while Internet, SMS and prepaid mobile services out of bounds for the people even on 101st day of lockdown, today.

A shopkeeper identified as Meraj-ud-din was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Tral area of Pulwama district, today. Indian forces have launched a CASO in the area following the incident.

Meanwhile, Kashmiri journalists held a peaceful protest at the Press Club in Srinagar against completion of over 100 days of internet blockade in Kashmir. The journalists were holding laptops in their hands and carried placards, which read: “100 days, No Internet”. Majid Maqbool, an independent journalist, on the occasion described it as a war-like situation in Kashmir. Aakash Hassan, another journalist, said it is their basic right to demand internet service.

Reports, gleaned from the internet-restricted Kashmir valley, suggest that Indian forces’ personnel roam in plainclothes in private vehicles and arrest teenaged boys they find playing outside their house as if being a teenager has become a crime in the territory. The families of the detained boys, aged 14 to 16 years, have approached media in Srinagar to share the ordeal. They said that the authorities are also making them pay for the meals, served to their wards in custody.
