PDP president Mufti grieves IIOJK siege since Aug 2019

Friday – February 5, 2021
SRINAGAR (India): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), peoples democratic party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti said, Wednesday, the IIOJK Valley has been under the worst form of siege since August 2019.

According to Kashmir Media Service (KMS), while referring to the farmers protest in India and the subsequent security measures taken by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led government, the PDP leader wrote on twitter that the sight is far too familiar for the Kashmiris.

“Concertina wires and trenches around farmer protests have shocked everyone but the sight is far too familiar for us Kashmiris. Kashmir has been under the worst form of siege since August 2019. The scale of suppression here is unimaginable,” she wrote on twitter.

Indian prime minister (PM) Narendra Modi led fascist Indian government had repealed the special status of IIOJK and placed it under strict military siege on August 5, 2019.

PDP president Mufti wrote that the maze of wires, nails and trenches is combined with draconian laws, illegal detentions and massive troop deployment.

She maintained that Indian agencies hound political leaders and businessmen while first information reports (FIRs) and unlawful activities (prevention) act (UAPA) against journalists are methods adopted to choke dissent in IIOJK.

We understand the pain and humiliation inflicted on the farmers and stand in solidarity with them, PDP president Mufti said.

The government of India (GoI) cannot and must not be allowed to ram bills against the consent of people and ruthlessly run roughshod over those who oppose and protest, she added.
