Srinagar, October 14, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has said that the situation in the Kashmir valley is worsening with each passing day due to relentless curfew and communication blockade. While urging international community to take stock of the dire situation in the South Asian region, the DFP spokesman said in addition to humanitarian crisis, the 10 week-long inhuman siege and communications blackout has pushed the valley into quagmire of uncertainty and chaos.
“The valley has been completely paralyzed under relentless siege for last 10 weeks, people are being trampled down under the jackboots and their fundamental rights have been usurped by the India’s fascist regime”, a DFP spokesman said adding that the Indian media, which has become a mouthpiece of establishment, was shamelessly peddling lies to deflect world attention from the real issue. Hailing international media outlets for exposing Indian brutalities and savagery in Kashmir, the spokesman said that Kashmiri women and children were the worst sufferers of the suffocating siege.
“Restoring phone services in Kashmir does not mean there is normalcy in Kashmir”, the spokesman said adding that restoration of phone, internet and other facilities are not the ultimate demand of people of Kashmir. “For Kashmiris, freedom from India’s illegal and forcible occupation is the first and foremost goal”, he said adding that Kashmiris’ will never compromise on their cherished goal for which they have offered immense sacrifices. The spokesman said that BJP government’s recent attempt to abrogate of article 370 and 35-A was actually part of New Delhi’s grand design to change dominant resistance narrative in Kashmir.
