Rumi once said, “The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” The saddened Kashmir yet again hit headlines on August 5 as this day marks the anniversary of its Robbed Identity. However, Youm-e-Istehsal is being observed today (Wednesday) to express solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiris.
Exactly a year ago, India on this day; robbed Kashmir’s identity by abrogating its special status, where 7 million people have been living under a brutal military occupation and Internet blackout.
This day (Youm-e-Istehsal) has become another infamous date in the history of Kashmir that witnesses the increased repression by extremist Modi regime.
The Indian authorities continue to impose curfew and strict restrictions to prevent people from holding anti-India demonstrations on Youm-e-Istehsal, being observed, today.
Indian troops have been deployed in strength across the occupied territory to keep the people indoors.
The authorities have sealed most of the roads and market places.
Announcements were made on loudspeakers wherein people were asked to stay inside their homes.
No movement of people is being allowed.
Meanwhile, a complete shutdown is being observed in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir as a mark of protest against continued military siege and the Modi regime’s nefarious plans to change the demographic profile of the territory.
Call for the strike has been given by the veteran Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Gilani, and supported by almost all Hurriyat leaders and organizations.
Markets and business establishments across the occupied territory are shut while public transport is off the road.
