US based newspaper, The New York Times said, the India's military lockdown has hit the religious freedom of the people in the occupied Kashmir.

It said in its report that the call out (Azan) five times a day from the minarets of the Jamia Masjid and echo across Srinagar has been silent for nearly four months.

The New York Times said last summer India implemented a military lockdown in which it pressed harsh curbs on civil rights, arrested thousands of people, blocked internet and phone service, and shuttered important mosques.”
