In Occupied Kashmir, Eid-ul-Fitr was marked by forceful anti-India protest demonstrations and clashes between Indian troops and protestors on Monday.
According to Kashmir Media Service, immediately after Eid prayers, people in large numbers took to the streets in Srinagar, Islamabad, Kulgam, Pampore, Pulwama, Shopian, Sopore, and other parts of Occupied Kashmir.
They hoisted Pakistani flags and shouted high-pitched slogans in favor of Pakistan and freedom. The protesters demanded that Indian troops should leave Jammu and Kashmir without any further delay.
A resolution circulated by Joint Resistance leadership supporting the right to self-determination of the people of Kashmir and against the random killings by Indian troops was passed at Eid congregations.
The resolution urged the international community and other world human rights organizations to build pressure on India to stop war crimes and human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir.
Meanwhile, the authorities had placed all Hurriyet leaders, including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Mohammad Yasin Malik and Shabbir Ahmed Shah, under house arrest and in police stations. They were not allowed to join congregational Eid-ul-Fitr prayers.
Dozens of people were critically injured after Indian police used brute force, fired pellets and teargas shells on protesters at Eidgah, Safakadal, Sopore, Pattan, Palhalan, Islamabad, Bijbehara and Pulwama areas.
