Indian lockdown of Occupied Kashmir completes 10 weeks

SRINAGAR - In Occupied Kashmir, the miseries of millions of residents of Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region continue unabated as the strict lockdown imposed by Indian government completed 10 weeks, today.

Shops and markets are closed and public transport is off the roads in the Kashmir Valley and many areas of Jammu as a mark of protest to express resentment against the Indian occupation.

In the absence of public transport, people face immense difficulties to get to the hospitals and move from one place to another to meet their loved ones.

They cannot even easily communicate with their relatives and friends due to gag on internet and cell phone services. The lockdown and ban on communications has virtually cut off the Kashmir Valley from the rest of the world.

As per the estimates of Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industries, the losses in occupied Kashmir since 5th August have crossed over rupees six thousand crore.

Meanwhile, Resistance Youth League in the posters circulated in occupied Kashmir appealed to the ulema and intellectuals of the territory to play lead role in ending the Indian subjugation.

It said, it is responsibility of religious leaders and intellectuals to show the path of freedom to the Kashmiri youth. The Resistance Youth League said that at a time when the cruel soldiers are standing at the doors of the Kashmiris and the chastity of their mothers, sisters and daughters was at risk, it is the responsibility of every person to play his role in the ongoing freedom movement.
