Shutdown in Occupied Kashmir enters day 102
In occupied Kashmir, 102 days on, normal life continues to elude the Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu and Ladakh regions due to the military lockdown imposed by India following August 5 illegal move.
Restrictions under Section 144 and ban on prepaid phone, SMS and internet services remain enforced.
However, landlines and voice calls on postpaid connections have been partially restored.
As a mark of silent protest, people in the Valley continue to keep their shops closed except for a brief period in the morning and evening and stay away from schools and offices. Public transport is also unavailable.
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.
