SRINAGAR - Massive protests in Occupied Kashmir witness placards with "Thank You Pakistan" as Kashmiris defy curfew restrictions imposed by Indian Military authorities.
In occupied Kashmir , the authorities continued to impose strict curfew and other restrictions across the valley on the 13th consecutive day, today, to prevent people from holding demonstrations against India’s move of ending special status to Jammu and Kashmir .
Hundreds of people defying curfew took to the streets in Srinagar after Juma prayers yesterday to express their resentment against New Delhi’s move of repealing Article 370 of the Indian Constitution that granted special status to the territory.
They raised high-pitched anti-India and pro-freedom slogans. Placards with “Thank you Pakistan slogans” were displayed.
The authorities also continue to impose information blockade as TV channels and internet links remain snapped and restrictions on media continue since 5th August.
Local newspaper even failed to update their online editions during all this period while majority of them could also not be printed due to curfew and other restrictions.
On the other hand, almost all Hurriyat leaders, including Syed Ali Gilani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq have been put under house arrest or in jails.
