The Army chief further said that Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Kashmir are bravely facing Indian atrocities under continued siege.
On the other hand in occupied Kashmir, military siege and communications lockdown in the Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region entered 73rd successive day, today.
Mobile internet and broadband as well as about two million phones using prepaid SIM cards continue to remain suspended.
Shops in Srinagar and other parts of the Valley usually open only for a couple of hours in the morning and evening to restock supplies, keeping shutters down during the day.
Public transport continues to remain mostly absent and only private vehicles and those with special permits can be seen on the roads. Offices remain almost empty and there are virtually no students in schools and colleges which reopened recently.
Many believe that the continued shutdown is due to popular anger at India’s Aug 5 unilateral action, comparing it to a campaign of civil disobedience.
A media report said that a number of new checkpoints have been installed in different areas of Srinagar where the forces are checking vehicles, adding many new bunkers have also been established in Srinagar city in the last few weeks.
