In occupied Kashmir, normal life continues to remain affected for the 76th straight day, today, in the Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region due to the Indian military lockdown and suspension of internet and prepaid cellular services.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Indian troops continued their violent cordon and search operations in different districts of the territory.
The troops continued their operations in Srinagar, Ganderbal, Kupwara, Bandipora, Shopian, Pulwama, Islamabad, Ramban, Doda, Kishtwar and other areas for the last 25 days.
The troops during so-called door-to-door searches harassed and terrorizing people and arrested freedom activists in Ghat, Malna, Hanch, Posta-Bagla, which covered dozens of villages in Doda district.
Despite the authorities’ claims that there are no restrictions in any part of the Valley, curbs under Section 144, banning assembly of four or more persons, continue to remain enforced in Srinagar and other towns across the territory.
Though the administration says that normalcy has returned to the territory, yet its recent publishing of full page ads in leading Srinagar-based newspapers, asking residents to resume normal life and open their businesses is ample proof that things are not normal in the territory.
