The military lock down and communications blackout in Indian occupied Kashmir has entered 122nd Day today.

Frustration, anger and fear have been growing in occupied Kashmir since August 5.

Since when Modi government stripped the region of its semi-autonomous status and imposed a curfew and a communications blackout.

There has been no such example of inhumane clampdown as of Kashmir where life is strangled.

The Indian government deployed thousands of troops to the already heavily militarized region to quell potential dissent. It also cut off internet access, put politicians under house arrest and shut down schools.

Millions have been left isolated from the world, with concerns raised about lack of medical supplies in the area.

The crisis has upended the education of millions of children in the disputed Himalayan region, and many have been caught up in street violence.

#kashmirstillundercurfew is one of the top trends on Wednesday where social media users are expressing their anger against Indian aggression.

Kashmir media reported that  the Modi-led government is now planning to further erode Muslim-majority character of the territory by carving out new administrative divisions from the newly-formed union territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

On the other hand, at a time when political activities of even so-called mainstream parties have come to a naught post abrogation of Article 370, BJP has gone into an overdrive to hold organizational polls to enroll members into the party fold through arrest and harassment and other coercive measures.
