In occupied Kashmir, thousands of people defying curfew and other restrictions took to streets in south, north and central Kashmir, on Tuesday (August 27), against India’s latest onslaught and imposition of Hindu culture on Kashmiri people.
Scores of people were injured when occupational forces fired bullets, pellets and teargas shells on protesters in Soura area of Srinagar. A handicrafts store owner, Sameer Wani, told media men that it was a ‘do-or-die’ situation for Kashmiris amid deliberate destruction of their businesses and trampling of basic rights by the occupational forces. Many protesters said that they were worried about their teenaged sons, who were abducted by the troops during nocturnal raids.
Meanwhile, people are facing severe shortage of food, medicines and other commodities due to unabated curfew and communication blockade, which entered the 24th consecutive day, today, in the Kashmir valley. Markets and schools are shut while all internet and communication services including landline phone, mobile and TV channels are closed in Kashmir valley and five districts of Jammu region.
Local newspapers are offline while most of them failed to bring out their print editions.
