ISLAMABAD - Indian hotels start to mock Kashmiris even with food as people struggle with food shortages in the valley.
At a time when the curfew-hit Indian-occupied Kashmir (IOK) is struggling from a terrible food shortage, a restaurant in India is offering a discount on a platter if the customer is from the disputed valley in order to mock and humiliate the people of Kashmir

The restaurant also claims to have veg and non-veg food options in the platter from the Himalayan region.
The disputed valley has been under lockdown since August 5 when India snatched IOK’s special status through a rushed resolution.
To dampen the possibility of widespread protests, India flooded Kashmir with troops, imposed severe movement restrictions, and snapped all telephone, mobile phone and internet connections.
