As Pakistan awaits resolution of Kashmir dispute with India under United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions, brutal Modi regime have cut off more than 10 million people from the entire world to forcefully tighten its grip on the Himalayan region.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the humanitarian crisis has worsened in the region as 32 days have passed since imposition of curfew ordered by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi after unilaterally abrogating articles 370 and 35A of the Indian constitution via a rushed presidential decree, stripping Kashmiris of their special rights.

Communications’ blackout, internet and mobile services’ suspension, closure of TV channels and stringent curfew have brought life to a standstill with all markets closed and public transport off the roads since August 5.

Yesterday, an 11th class student, Asrar Ahmed Khan, succumbed to pellet gun injuries after he was shot by Indian troops during demonstrations in Soura town of Srinagar a few days ago

The occupation forces have further tightened curfew and other restrictions in Srinagar to prevent further demonstrations against the student’s killing.

Around 50,000 public transport vehicles are grounded while train service is suspended for more than a month.

The entire region has no contact with the outside world due to blockade and suspension of internet, mobile and landline phones, and closure of TV channels.
