Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, normal life remains affected in the Kashmir Valley on the 127th consecutive day, today, due to complete shutdown. The shutdown is being observed as part of the protest programme issued by the joint resistance leadership comprising the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, and Hurriyet leaders, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, against the civilian killings and other brutalities of Indian forces in the occupied territory.The strike started on July 9, a day after the extrajudicial murder of popular youth leader, Burhan Wani, in a fake encounter by Indian troops.
The killing of Burhan Wani triggered mass uprising in the territory and so far 113 people have been killed, over 16,000 injured and more than 400 blinded due to the firing of pellets, bullets and teargas shells by Indian forces on the peaceful protesters. The puppet authorities have detained thousands of people including Hurriyet leaders and activists to suppress the movement.
