Curfew continues for 17th consecutive day in occupied Kashmir
It’s been more than two weeks in occupied Kashmir that the authorities continue to impose strict curfew to prevent people from holding demonstrations against India’s move of abrogating special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

Reportedly, the situation in Kashmir is getting worse with each passing day as curfew has resulted in shortage of essential commodities including food and medicine in the valley.

The entire occupied territory particularly the Kashmir has been turned into a military garrison as Indian troops and police personnel are deployed in every nook and corner.

The authorities also continue to impose information blockade as TV channels and internet links remain snapped and restrictions on media continue since 5th August.

According to Kashmir media service, almost all political leadership including Syed Ali Gilani and Mirwaiz Muhammad Umar Farooq are under house arrest.

Due to severe blockade, a famine-like situation is emerging as people are facing severe shortage of essential commodities including baby food and life-saving medicines.

Despite the Indian government so-called direction to reopen primary schools and government offices, the attendance is very short in all institutions.
