Indian imposed curfew continues in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) for ninth continuous day.

Indian forces did not allow Kashmiri to pray Eid prayers nor were the people allowed to perform religious rituals of sacrifice.

According to details, Kashmiri people are forced to spend the day of Eid-ul-Adha in their homes. The curfew continues for the ninth consecutive day.

The situations in Kashmir still remain tightly locked down. The valley stays in complete silence and no communication is being exchanged.

The phone and internet services along with other communication channels are still down. Kashmiri people are cut off from the world with no communication.

Due to consecutive curfew, groceries are about to end, and people are finding it hard to get food. Milk for children have become rare in the available.

Previously, Curfew is imposed by the Indian government on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha in occupied Kashmir.

Kashmiri Muslims are unable to sacrifice animals and offer Eid-ul-Adha prayers, as entire occupied territory has been converted into a military garrison and a big concentration camp through deployment of forces’ personnel in every street and village of the territory.

Local newspapers even failed to update their online editions since the night of August 04.

Telephone and internet connections are still cut off after the Indian government revoked the rescinded years of autonomy and gave full control of the disputed region to New Delhi.

According to Kashmir media service the entire occupied territory including Doda and Kishtwar areas of Jammu region is reeling under strict curfew and communication blackout since last Monday when India unilaterally revoked Article 370 of the Indian Constitution that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

Eid prayers were allowed in only a few small mosques located in peripheral areas of the Kashmir valley. As people came out of these mosques, they started shouting anti-India slogans, which prompted the authorities to immediately re-impose curfew. The web pages of all local newspapers could not be updated since that day.

The political leadership including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and former puppet ministers Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti are in house detention or in jails. National Conference leader Ali Mohammad Sagharwas shifted to a jail in Uttar Pradesh.
