In occupied Kashmir (IoK), the situation continues to remain far from normal in the Kashmir Valley as well as Muslim majority areas of Jammu and Ladakh regions as New Delhi-imposed clampdown in the name of security entered 112th running day, today.
Apart from heavy presence of Indian forces, restrictions under Section 144 remain enforced in the territory.
Internet across all platforms, SMS and prepaid mobile services remain totally snapped in the Valley and Muslim areas of Jammu region
As a form of passive resistance against Indian occupation and its Aug 5 illegal actions, the people living in the Kashmir Valley continue to keep their business establishments closed and stay away from offices and educational institutions.
Most of the public transport is also off the roads.
Shops open only for couple of hours in the morning or evening only to cater to the daily needs of the people.
People in the Valley are observing mass civil disobedience to show their strong resentment to India’s brutal occupation, especially its August 5 illegal measures.
In this regard, shops continue to remain shut most of the time except for few hours in the day and hardly any public transport is seen on the roads.
Schools and offices are open but few turn up there. However, some private transport is plying and roadside vendors are doing their businesses to make their both ends meet.
Hundreds of thousands of Kashmiris were massacred by the forces of Maharaja Hari Singh, Indian Army and Hindu fanatics affiliated with RSS and other communal organizations in different parts of Jammu region while they were migrating to Pakistan during the first week of November in 1947.
