Indian-occupied Kashmir has been in a security lock down since 5th August, when India’s Hindu-majority government rescinded years of autonomy and gave full control to New Delhi.

The control authorities keep internet and telephone links suspended and snapped television, telephone and internet links to prevent protests.

The occupied territory remains cut off from the rest of the world.
People are divested of essential commodities like baby food and life-saving medicines and no access is given to patients to hospital and the territory is giving the picture of a humanitarian crisis.


Earlier, the Indian authorities had barred Kashmiris from offering Eid-ul-Azha prayers and locked down Srinagar’s main Jama Masjid.

The troops deployed in Srinagar have barricaded the entire city, disallowing vehicular and pedestrian movement, while the same situation prevails in Jammu, Kathua, Samba, Poonch, Doda, Rajouri, Udhampur, Kishtwar, and other areas.Some 500 people took part in protests on Sunday. Local leaders have warned the loss of autonomy could lead to unrest in the region, which has witnessed tens of thousands of deaths as Indian atrocities continue.
