India faces strong diplomatic backlash over talks of 'Israeli model' in Occupied Kashmir
SRINAGAR –India faces strong diplomatic backlash over talks of 'Israeli model' in Occupied Kashmir.
Indian consul general Sandeep Chakravorty has called for an "Israeli model" in India held Kashmir, which is reeling under a military lockdown for nearly four months now.
The Indian diplomat said, "I believe the security situation will improve, it will allow the refugees to go back, and in your lifetime, you will be able to go back … and you will be able to find security, because we already have a model in the world."
"I don t know why we don t follow it. It has happened in the Middle East. If the Israeli people can do it, we can also do it," he said.
On the other hand, valley of Kashmir and many parts of Jammu region have continued to remain isolated from the world as unprecedented military lockdown entered 116th running day.
Though uneasy calm and uncertainty prevail in the Valley yet life remains badly affected there as restrictions under Section 144 remain enforced, shops and business centers are mostly shut and few turn up to educational institutions and offices.
