Indian troops martyr another youth in IOK

November 11, 2019

Srinagar, November 11, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism, martyred one more Kashmiri youth in Bandipore district, today, raising the toll to two in the past twenty-four hours. The youth was killed during a cordon and search operation in Lawdoora area of the district. Earlier, the troops had killed one youth in the same area, last night. The operation was going on till the reports last came in.

Meanwhile, normal life continues to elude the Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu and Ladakh regions due to the military lockdown imposed by India on 5th August. Restrictions and ban on prepaid phone, SMS and internet services remain enforced. As a mark of silent protest, people continue to keep their shops closed except for a brief period and stay away from schools and offices. Public transport is also off the roads.

Due to clampdown, the hospitals continue to face shortage of life-saving drugs in the occupied territory. Reports said that life-saving drugs for diabetes, heart and cancer patients are short in the Kashmir Valley. Medical Superintendent of SMHS Hospital, Srinagar, told media that they didn’t have any budget to procure medicines.

Tamil Nadu’s main opposition party, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, through a resolution adopted at its general council meet in Chennai, slammed the Indian government for turning IOK into a huge prison, and asked New Delhi to respect the sensitivities of the people of the territory. The DMK condemned New Delhi for its 5th August’s action.

The Kashmir dispute, against the backdrop of revocation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status by the Indian government, has found its way into the General Election campaign in the UK. Social media messages and chat groups are being used by the Kashmiri diaspora to influence voters. Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi, the first turbaned Sikh, who was elected to the UK Parliament in the 2017, says that the Labour Party accepts that Kashmir is a disputed territory and the people of Kashmir should be given the right of self-determination in accordance with UN resolutions.
