SRINAGAR: Kashmiris have given a clear message to Modi that they want only and only freedom.
Kashmiris have said “ lift curfew once then you will see what happens here.
In occupied Kashmir, the authorities continue to impose strict curfew and other restrictions across the Kashmir valley on the 12th consecutive day, today, to prevent people from holding demonstrations against India’s move to change the special status of the territory.
Hurriyat forums in coordination with civil society and the associations of lawyers, journalists, traders, transporters and employees have appealed the Kashmiri nation, the people of the Kashmir valley, Jammu and Kargil, to come out on streets and raise their voice for their inalienable right to self-determination. The UN Security Council is holding a meeting to discuss the Kashmir dispute, today.
The occupation authorities continue to maintain strict curfew with the deployment of thousands of Indian troops in every nook and corner of the Kashmir valley, turning it into a military garrison and big concentration camp.
The communication blackout also continues as internet and telephone links are snapped and media is gagged since the night of 4th August. After imposing communication blackout on occupied Kashmir, Narendra Modi government had announced scrapping of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir by abrogating Article 370 of the Indian Constitution on 5th August.
The Kashmir valley remains cut off from the external world due to suspension of Internet services and telephone links. Local newspapers have failed to update their online editions during all this period and the majority of them could not hit the stands due to curfew and other restrictions.
