After suppressing all human rights in Indian-occupied Kashmir and seizing all freedom from Kashmiris, the government authorities are now forbidding them to perform their religious obligations.

Since the abolition of Kashmir’s special status in India’s constitution on 5th August, the authorities haven’t allowed Muslims to offer prayer in the infamous Jamia Masjid in Srinagar and many other mosques in the region. This has been going on for the past month now. However, now the government authorities have announced the prohibition of Muharram processions in the region, and the reason being their fear that these processions have the potential to turn into protests against the government of India.

On Friday, the administration of Kashmir said that just like the past years, no processions will be allowed this year either, despite it being an old tradition of Kashmir to hold processions in Srinagar and other parts of the valley on 9th and 10th Muharram. The motive of these processions is to pay tribute to Imam Hussain (as), the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (SAWW), and his honor his sacrifice for the whole of humanity.

Kashmir has been on total lockdown for 34 days now. There is no transport and all schools and markets etc. are closed. In majority areas, internet, landline, and television services are down, due to this the valley is totally cut off from the rest of the world. The on-going situation in Kashmir is a depiction of a serious humanitarian crisis, people are facing a deficiency of essential drugs and baby food. Doctors are unable to reach hospitals and patients are suffering due to shortage of medicines.

As per details revealed by KMS (Kashmir Media Service), Indian forces in Kashmir have killed 16 residents and injured 467 with airguns in August. On the other hand, India is banning Twitter accounts for raising voice against their atrocities in Kashmir and 3,500 Facebook and Whatsapp pages/accounts are being monitored and observed.
