Srinagar, September 24 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, in yet another assault on the people’s right to information, Indian authorities have once again blocked the access to the website of Kashmir Media Service in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
The Indian authorities have imposed strict restrictions on the media to hide their crimes from the world while after August 5, 2019, these restrictions have been made more stringent.
The well-known journalistic organization, Kashmir Media Service, highlights the atrocities committed on Kashmiris by Indian authorities and keeps the oppressed Kashmiris informed about the important developments in the outside world besides exposing Indian atrocities to the world.
India is using all kinds of tactics to mislead the world and cover up its crimes, including grave political and human rights violations, by the Indian authorities and their forces in the occupied territory and blocking the website of Kashmir Media Service is a link in the same chain.
After the illegal and unilateral actions of 5th August 2019 by the Modi regime to end the special status of Kashmir, it has imposed a new media policy to hide its heinous crimes in the territory and is harassing journalists and human rights activists while many Hurriyat leaders and activists have been languishing in different jails of India and the occupied territory.
When a journalist or human rights activist questions the killing of innocent people, he is thrown behind the bars. To hide these crimes, media organizations are also targeted by the authorities. Every media organization that dares to expose these crimes of the authorities becomes a victim of Indian reproach, which is a serious violation of human rights.
International organizations, including the United Nations, should take notice of these atrocities by India and come forward to give the oppressed Kashmiris their rights, including the right to self-determination.
