In occupied Kashmir, Kashmiris continue to suffer on 50th consecutive day, today, due to continued curfew, restrictions, and communication blackout imposed by the Indian government.
The Kashmir valley is under continued military siege since 5th August when Narendra Modi-led Indian government repealed the special status of occupied Kashmir and imposed strict clampdown in the territory. Thousands of Indian troops have kept millions of Kashmiris confined to their homes during all these days.
Educational institutions, shops, markets, and business establishments continue to remain closed while public transport is off the roads across the Kashmir valley. Communication services like mobile, internet and TV channels are closed in the entire Kashmir valley and in some parts of Jammu region.
Patients, doctors, and other medical staff are facing difficulties in reaching hospitals due to curfew and other restrictions. Foodstuff, medicines and other essential commodities have run out of stocks, adding to the miseries of the people.
Earlier, the Supreme Court of India on September 16 ordered to lift curfew from Indian Occupied Kashmir and said that Jammu and Kashmir should make every effort to restore normalcy in the state that has been under lockdown for over 40 days. The court then went on to add that restoration will however be done on a “selective basis, keeping in mind national interests”.
