SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, the military clampdown by India has entered 77th consecutive day, on Sunday.
Normal life remains crippled in the Kashmir Valley and parts of Jammu due to restrictions and gag on internet and prepaid mobile services.
Despite the Indian authorities’ efforts to restore normalcy in occupied Kashmir, people continue to observe shutdown as a silent protest against India’s recent actions in the territory.
Shops and business establishments remain closed most of the time except for few hours in the morning and evening while public transport is off the roads.
The Indian authorities tried to hoodwink world community about the prevailing situation of the territory by announcing opening of educational institutions but failed in their designs as the parents are reluctant to send their wards to schools, colleges and universities, fearing for their safety.
The authorities have also deputed magistrates in educational institutions across occupied Kashmir to monitor the activities of students.
