Srinagar, October 05 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, complete shutdown is being observed, today, on the occasion of the Indian Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit to the territory.
Call for the strike has been given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and supported by other Hurriyat leaders and organizations. The shutdown is aimed at conveying a strong message to India that Kashmiris reject its illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir and will not accept anything short of freedom from its yoke.
The occupation authorities have converted the IIOJK into a military garrison by deploying Indian troops and police personnel in every nook and corner of the territory, adding to the miseries of the people. The troops are carrying out cordon and search operations at different places since Amit Shah landed in Jammu on Monday. The troops martyred four youth during violent military operations in Shopian district, this morning. The authorities have also suspended mobile, internet and train services in the Kashmir Valley.
Indian Army and police are using helicopters and drones to carry out aerial and ground surveillance. Indian forces’ personnel have also intensified frisking of people and checking of vehicles in Srinagar and other areas of the occupied territory. Several people have been arrested across IIOJK during the last few days.
