In occupied Kashmir, curfew and other restrictions continue to enter 17th day today aggravating the plight of the entire besieged population in Kashmir and Pirpanchal valley.
Indian forces have blocked roads by erecting steep barricades and using concertina wires. However, people repeatedly flout curfew and other restrictions and come out to stage protests against abrogation of Article 370, which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir. Several people were injured during clashes with Indian forces in Srinagar and other areas of the valley.
The authorities also continue to impose information blockade as TV channels and internet links remain snapped and restrictions on media continue since 5th August when BJPs government announced scraping of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. “We are not begging for anything but demand India should respect its promises,” a protester told media men. “We will not sit back until we achieve complete independence from India,” said another protester.
