curfew in Indian occupied Kashmir

Indian imposed curfew has entered 39th 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.

Normal life remains crippled on the 39th consecutive day, today, in the Kashmir valley and five districts of Jammu region.

Markets are shut and public transport is off the road since August 5 when Narendra Modi-led Indian government had announced repeal of special status of occupied Kashmir.

According to the Kashmir Valley Transporters Association figures, around 50,000 public transport vehicles remain grounded in the valley since August 5. The train service also remains suspended in the occupied territory.

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.
