Freezing cold adds to miseries of IOK people facing siege on 149th day
December 31, 2019
SRINAGAR (KMS) – In Occupied Kashmir, reeling under chilling cold, people continue to suffer immensely amid unrelenting military siege and lockdown especially in the Occupied Kashmir Valley and Jammu region on the 149th consecutive day on Tuesday. Besides restrictions in force under Section 144, the continued suspension of prepaid mobile phone, text messaging and internet services have compounded the miseries of the besieged people of the occupied territory. The Internet ban has dealt a severe blow to all small and big ventures employing hundreds of thousands of employees. Meanwhile, in blatant violation of the local and international laws, the occupation authorities have opened jobs for non-locals at the High Court of the territory. Some 33 non-gazetted posts were advertised in different categories without restricting, for the first time, the outsiders to apply for the jobs. The move is seen by locals as transgression on their fundamental rights. The High Court of the occupied territory has directed the authorities concerned to produce the latest report on the health condition of incarcerated Bar President, Mian Abdul Qayoom, who is languishing in an Utter Pardesh jail in India. Mian Abdul Qayoom is a diabetic as well as cardiac patient. APHC-AJK leader and Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement Vice Chairman Abdul Majeed Malik, in a statement issued in Islamabad, cautioned the people of Occupied Kashmir particularly those belonging to the Pehari community to beware of the opportunists who hold meetings with Indian rulers for privileges. In Washington, US Presidential candidate, Cory Booker, joined Pakistani-American democrat Dr Asif Mahmood at a recent meeting to raise his voice against the gross human rights violations in occupied Kashmir particularly after India illegally abrogated Kashmir’s special status on August 5.
