Internationally, protests are increasing day by day to show solidarity with the people of Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K). Restrictions on movement and assembly is imposed. Educational institutions are closed. Mobile and internet service is suspended. There is severe shortage of food, medicines and other basic necessities. There is a worst historic curfew in IOJ&K for more than a month. Entire international media and community with its sane voices are raising their concerns regarding the deplorable news being received from IOJ&K. Worldwide protests are continued against the constitutional blitzkrieg Of special status of IOJ&K. By all counts, the Kashmir Freedom March rally on Tuesday 3rd Of September, 2019 was bigger than the massive protest on August 15 when nearly 15,000 had gathered outside Indian High Commission after Narendra Modi’s government revoked Article 370.
US Senator Bernie Sanders Democrat candidate for Presidential Election said that he is also deeply concerned about the situation in Kashmir where the Indian government has revoked Kashmiri autonomy, cracked down on dissent and instituted a communications blackout. The crackdown in the name of security is also denying the Kashmiri people access to medical care. Even many respected doctors in India have acknowledged that the Indian government-imposed restrictions on travel are threatening the life-saving care that patients need.
Jeremy Corbyn Opposition Leader Of the Labour Party said that the situation in Kashmir is deeply disturbing. Human rights abuses taking place are unacceptable. The rights of the Kashmiri people must be respected and UN resolutions implemented. British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab on Tuesday said that Britain had asked the Indian government to respect international standards of human rights, respect rights of Kashmiris and end lockdown of occupied Kashmir, which has now entered the second month. Dominic Raab expressed alarm at the worsening human rights situation in occupied Kashmir as a result of the draconian clampdown on Kashmiris.
Leading Indian newspaper ‘the Indian Express’ says Kashmir problem is becoming a bigger headache for India due to increasing reports of violence by Indian military in the territory. In an opinion piece, the paper notes that incidents of torture and violence taking place in Kashmir are a terrible mistake on the part of Indian authorities. It says Prime Minister Narendra Modi must know that in the presence of a violent military crackdown there is absolutely no chance of winning the peace.
The paper says the arrest of a doctor in Srinagar for drawing attention to the collapse of healthcare facilities there, refutes the claims by Indian authorities that there has not been a single death since the military clampdown. Indian Journalist, Nirupama Subramanian said that the Indian government will eventually tire out the people, but if there ever was a plan to win them over, it has become much more difficult now, if not impossible than it was before August 5.
