“At present, the occupied valley has been turned into a prison, 17 days of curfew, closure of schools and educational institutions, presence of extra troops in an already heavily militarized occupied territory, sending in of RSS goons, complete communication blackout and use of banned cluster bombs on civilian population at Line of Control (LoC) are clear examples of Modi’s earlier ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Gujarat.” The premier briefed the US lawmakers.
