May 30, 2020

In occupied Kashmir, the inhumane lockdown imposed by RSS-backed Narendra Modi-led fascist government has completed 300 days.

According to KMS, Indian troops martyred 134 Kashmiris during the period. It said that at least 1,299 people were critically injured due to the firing of bullets, pellets and teargas shells by Indian military.

The report said entire occupied Kashmir had been turned into an open-air prison, thousands of Hurriyat leaders including activists and human rights defenders continued to remain under house arrest or in different jails of occupied Kashmir for the past several months.

The report said worst kind of siege had failed to subdue the freedom sentiment of Kashmiri people and they were determined to keep fighting for their rights, including the right to self-determination.

Meanwhile, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred two Kashmiri youth during a cordon and search operation at Wanpora in Kulgam district, today. The occupation authorities suspended internet service in the district.

On the other hand, Chairperson of European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Human Rights, Maria Arena, in a letter to Indian Home Minister, Amit Shah, expressed concern over the arrest of rights activists, Gautam Navlakha and Anand Teltumbde.

She slammed Modi government for portraying anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protesters as terrorists.
