December 08, 2019

In Washington, a bipartisan resolution has been introduced in the US House of Representatives asking India to end the restrictions on communication and mass detentions in occupied Kashmir.

The resolution introduced by Democrat lawmaker, Pramila Jayapal along with Republican lawmaker Steve Watkins urged the Indian government to allow international human rights observers and journalists to access occupied valley.

Meanwhile, unabated military siege and lockdown continue to affect the daily life in the Kashmir Valley and parts of Jammu region on 126th straight day, today (Sunday). The suspension of internet, text messaging and prepaid mobile services continues to haunt almost all segments of the society including students, businessmen, doctors and patients.
