Indian imposed curfew continues for 30th consecutive day in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Areas of Indian occupied Kashmir are reeling under strict curfew and communication blackout since August 5, when India unilaterally revoked Article 370 of the Indian Constitution that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

All means of communications have been suspended as the Indian government revoked the rescinded years of autonomy and gave full control of the disputed region to New Delhi.

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.

Kashmiri Muslims were 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.

Two days ago, Nobel prize-winning Indian welfare economist Amartya Sen stated, that there can be no solution to the Kashmir issue without democracy.

Yesterday, European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs took up the issue of escalating unrest in occupied Kashmir during its meeting.

According to the details, Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan attended the meeting to properly appraise the parliament on the Kashmir situation and ongoing Indian atrocities for resolution.

AJK government had released a press release as per which, it is for the first time that the Kashmir conflict will be discussed in the EU Parliament.

On the other hand, Sikh campaigners attended Kashmiri solidarity event held at the Pakistan Consulate in Birmingham on September 2.

On the occasion, Sikhs expressed solidarity with the Kashmiri victims of Indian state terrorism and pledged to work tirelessly to promote the restoration of human rights in Kashmir.

They also warned that it would only be possible if the underlying cause of the conflict were addressed.

Sikhs said that the forcible denial of freedom must be stopped by international action, Kashmiris right of self-determination must be freely exercised by the population that had been so tragically targeted by Indian extremism for decades.

Modi’s own blatantly unlawful actions since 5th August have internationalized the dispute to an extent that made it impossible for India to ever again credibly make those absurd claims.
