#9MonthsOfSiegeInIOJK

Srinagar, May 05 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, unrelenting military siege and crippling lockdown imposed by the fascist Modi government of India on August 5, last year, have completed 9 months, today.

A report released by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service, today, said, the life of Kashmiris has been made a living hell by the Indian authorities since New Delhi illegally abrogated Article 370 of its constitution on August 5, 2019, to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. The move, it added, was aimed at snatching away identity of the Kashmiris through changing the Muslim-majority status of the occupied territory.

The report says, that in order to give legal justification to non-resident Hindus to settle in IOK, India recently notified new domicile law for the territory . The report added that following this sinister move, three hundred thousand (300,000) domicile certificates were granted to non-locals while the Modi government continues to replace the Muslim names of the territory with Hindu names. »
