India gets a blow from Iran over Occupied Kashmir
TEHRAN - Iran has expressed serious concern over a security lockdown in the Indian Occupied Kashmir, urging India to bring the situation back to normal.
According to Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi, Iran is worried about the tough security condition for civilians in the disputed territory and restrictions imposed by India on Muslim's religious rituals.
He urged India to ensure that people in Occupied Kashmir are able to exercise their fundamental and recognized rights.
Over the past few days, large parts of Kashmir have remained cut off from the rest of the world amid a communications blackout, with no Internet, mobile phone or fixed-line links working.
