US Congresswoman condemns India communication lockdown in IOK
Washington: The condemnation of Narendra Modi-led government’s information and communication lockdown in occupied Kashmir continues with US Representative for California Judy Chu highlighting the restrictions on Tuesday.

Chu, who is the first Chinese-American to make it to US Congress, took to Twitter to urge India to lift curbs on communication in the occupied valley and “provide the citizens of [occupied] Jammu and Kashmir with the same rights as other citizens of India”.

“It’s been over a month since mobile phones and internet access were cut off in [occupied] Kashmir,” she wrote. “And one month in, many political leaders are still being held in preventive detention.”
