In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the President of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mehbooba Mufti, has said that democracy has been suspended in the territory.

Mehbooba Mufti talking to media men in Srinagar said, “The fundamental rights of people, like the right to express yourself, have been suspended. If anyone talks, he is arrested, be it a journalist or a common man. Politicians are pressured through the Indian Enforcement Directorate or other agencies and they are facing difficulties in playing their role.”

She said jails are filled with the people from IIOJK. She said the Kashmiri youth are beaten in the Indian colleges and the BJP has ruined the atmosphere in India.—KMS
