In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian troops, paramilitary forces, police and dreaded National Investigating Agency have unleashed a new wave of terror in the territory in the name of security for Hindu pilgrims of Amarnath Yatra that commenced in the territory, today (Thursday).
According to Kashmir Media Service, the forces are conducting house raids, crackdowns and search operations, particularly in South Kashmir.
Youth are arrested, harassed and ordered to report to army camps and police stations for questioning.
Witnesses told the media that the authorities have made heavy deployment of the troops along Srinagar-Jammu highway. No one is allowed to move in the areas.
The APHC leadership while condemning the Indian state terrorism in a statement urged the world community to raise voice against inhuman treatment to Kashmiris by the brutal Indian troops.
The leadership said that by doing this New Delhi is trying, in vain, to break the Kashmiris’ commitment to the freedom cause.
President People's Democratic Party, Mehbooba Mufti commenting on the forcible closure of shops tweeted that despite stringent measures, it is the people of Kashmir who provide the real sense of security to the Yatra pilgrims.
The 43-day Yatra, which commenced from twin base camps in IIOJK today, will conclude on 11 August.
In another sad development, after targeting Indian Muslims through bulldozer drive, the Modi regime has now started destroying the houses of Kashmiri Muslims after wickedly designating them as hideouts of mujahideen in Kashmir.
