Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement Chairman, Mir Shahid Saleem in a statement in Jammu condemned the authorities for forcibly preventing a peace march of different civil society groups against the lockdown in the territory.
He said that the Indian government had suspended all fundamental political and democratic rights of the Kashmiri people.
Kashmiri students studying in Uttarakhand, India, while speaking to media complained that administrations of colleges and universities are penalising and harassing them for reporting late.
The students asked how they could leave homes for their educational institutions amid curfew and lockdown imposed by the Indian authorities in occupied Kashmir since 5th of August when India revoked Kashmir’s special status.
On the other hand, senior Congress leader, Salman Khurshid addressing an event in New Delhi said that abrogation of Article 370 would have adverse impact on the region.
He said, it is a very wild imagination to think that Jammu and Kashmir can be integrated with India through the abrogation of the Article 370.
