In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their unabated acts of state terrorism have martyred 894 children and shoved thousands into jails during the last thirty years.

A report released by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service on the occasion of the Universal Children Day, on Wednesday, revealed that 894 children were among the 95,469 civilians martyred by Indian troops from January 01, 1989 till date. The report said that the killing of civilians by the troops rendered 107,780 children orphaned in the territory during the period.

Meanwhile, the residents of the Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu and Ladakh regions continue to simmer with anger and anguish on 108th day of military lockdown and internet suspension imposed by India in the territory since 5th August.

The level of Indian government’s strictness towards internet shutdown can be gauged from the fact that police registered an FIR against Huma Parveen, an Aligarh Muslim University Professor, and her husband, who lives in Kashmir valley, for just posting comments on social media about the agony of being disconnected in occupied Kashmir.

Professor Huma Parveen in a media interview expressed shock over the registration of the case saying that she was not able to contact her husband and a young daughter in the Valley since the imposition of clampdown on 5th August. She said that her emotions of losing connection with family can’t be described in words.
