NEW YORK (Web Desk) – Iconic billboards at Times Square lit up with ‘Free Kashmir’, ‘Restore Human Rights’ signs in a show of solidarity with the people of the Indian Occupied Kashmir ahead of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit. The digital sign boards were put up to mark the 53rd day since India revoked Kashmir’s special status and placed it under lockdown at a time when leaders from all over the world are gathered in New York for the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
