Curfew blockade enters the 47th day in Kashmir

In occupied Kashmir, people continue to suffer immensely as the Kashmir valley remained under strict military lockdown for the 47th consecutive day, today.

The heavy deployment of Indian troops has created an atmosphere of fear, forcing the people to remain indoors.

The continued blockade of the valley has aggravated the situation to an alarming proportion. The residents confined to their homes are facing difficulties in meeting their daily needs.

The shortage of essential commodities like milk, baby food and life-saving medicines is adding to the miseries of the people and the valley represents a humanitarian crisis.

Normal life remains crippled as all markets, business establishments, shops and educational institutions are shut while transport is off the road in the valley.

The occupation authorities continue to snap the means of communications including internet and mobile phone services and keep TV channels closed in Kashmir valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu.

Indian government has launched a crackdown on mosques as several prayer leaders have been arrested during the past few months. Donations made for the mosques are being monitored.

Indian police personnel are documenting the details of the relatives of the clerics while their bank accounts are being scrutinized.
