In occupied Kashmir, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir has said that the Kashmiri people must remain aware that no politicians in the territory should dare to come forward to cooperate with India to further its nefarious designs.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat in a statement issued in Srinagar said that the people should not tolerate any traitor and collaborator of Bharatiya Janata Party and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.

It said that Narendra Modi and his communal government who have snatched the identity of Kashmiris should not be allowed to succeed in finding their cooperators in occupied Kashmir. Tehreek-e-Hurriyat said that the Kashmiri people had rendered unparalleled sacrifices for securing their inalienable right to self-determination.

It said that no one would be allowed to undermine these sacrifices.

Meanwhile, people of the Kashmir Valley and Muslim-majority areas of Jammu continued to suffer immensely due to military siege on 97th consecutive day on Saturday.

The occupation authorities intensified restrictions and ordered closure of schools and colleges, today, ahead of the Indian Supreme Court’s verdict on the Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid case in Ayodhya.

The authorities deployed Indian troops and police personnel in strength in every nook and corner of the territory to prevent anti-India demonstrations against the handing over of the Babri Masjid land to Hindus for construction of a temple.

A five-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Indian Supreme Court, Ranjan Gogoi, in its verdict said the site of Babri Masjid will be given to a government-run trust for the building of a temple.

However, the bench also ruled that Muslims must get alternate land within the city for the construction of a mosque.

Voice of America in a report said that the people of occupied Kashmir had been facing tense situation for the last over three months after the Modi government imposed military siege and communications blockade on in the territory 5th of August.

The Chairperson of Kashmir Centre for Social and Development Studies, Professor Hameeda Nayeem, told VoA that shops open only for a few hours early in the morning because of the atmosphere of fear, with people mainly staying indoors.

She said drones were flying above homes, the army was deployed at every corner, and Indian forces had already arrested thousands of young men to prevent them from holding protest demonstrations.

Indian troops arrested the Chairman of Anjuman Seerat Committee, Kishtwar, Maulana Abdul Qayoom, and two other persons in Kishtwar.
