In occupied Kashmir, the authorities continued to impose strict curfew and other restrictions on the 12th straight day, today, to prevent people from holding anti-India demonstrations. Millions of Kashmiris have been deprived of their liberties and fundamental rights during all these days. Internet broadband, telephones and TV channels continuously remain snapped.
The occupied territory remains cut off from the rest of the world.
People are deprived of essential commodities like baby food and life-saving medicines and no access is given to patients to hospital and the territory is giving the picture of a humanitarian crisis. Hundreds of Kashmiri political leaders and activists have been put in jails or detained at undisclosed places. Many have been flown out of the occupied territory and kept in various Indian jails in Agra, Bareilly or Lucknow and their family members do not know their whereabouts.
The summer capital of the territory Srinagar has been turned into a vast maze of razor wire coils and steel barricades while drones and helicopters hover overhead. Four prominent Indian civil society activists, who visited the Kashmir valley for five days between 9th to 13th August, on their return to New Delhi while addressing a press conference said that the Indian authorities have converted the Kashmir valley into a big prison under military control.
They said that the Indian media’s claims of occupied Kashmir being peaceful are grossly misleading.
