In Occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leaders have categorically rejected the claim made by Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj during her speech at UN General Assembly on Jammu and Kashmir.

They said that Kashmir has never been part of India and Sushma Swaraj’s statement is far from reality.

In his statement, the APHC General Secretary, Shabbir Ahmad Shah said that by resorting to lies at the international forum, India had made a vain attempt about the historical reality over Jammu and Kashmir.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that Jammu and Kashmir was never and would never be the part of India as it was a disputed territory.

On the other hand, hundreds of Kashmiris held protests in the US and outside the UN office in Geneva to condemn the Indian Foreign Minister, Sushma Swaraj’s speech on Kashmir in the United Nations.

Kashmiris settled in the UK, France, Italy and Switzerland gathered in front of the UN building in Geneva and raised slogans against the Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir.

Meanwhile, curfew and other restrictions marked by shutdown continued for the 81st straight day, today, in the Kashmir Valley.

Shops, petrol pumps and other business establishments remained closed, while transport remained off the roads. Schools, colleges and other educational institutions also remained closed across the Valley.

At least six persons were injured due to the use of brute force by the police on the protesters in Kishtwar town.
