Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government continuing with its policy of political vengeance in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir sacked, today, five more government employees for their affiliation with the ongoing freedom movement.

The terminated employees included a police constable, a bank Manager, a plantation supervisor, an orderly in Water and Sanitation Department, and an Assistant Lineman in Public Health Engineering. All the five employees were dismissed from service under Article 311 of the Constitution which allows the Indian government to sack the employees without an inquiry. It is to mention here that the Modi government has already terminated dozens of government employees in the occupied territory on the charges of supporting the ongoing movement for freedom of Jammu and Kashmir from Indian illegal occupation.

The All Parties Hurriyat Conference leader, Khawaja Firdous, in a statement issued in Srinagar, appreciated the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shehbaz Sharif, for effectively highlighting the Kashmir dispute in his address at the recent Summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia in Astana, Kazakhstan. He said Pakistan’s continued support to the Kashmir cause has always been a source of encouragement for the Kashmiris.

Meanwhile, the spokesman of Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration, Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami, addressing a press conference after a meeting of the amalgam in Srinagar, today, expressed concern over the fast deteriorating situation in IIOJK. He said the Indian government is choking even the breathing space of the people of the territory, leaving them suffer on every front.

A civilian was killed after he was fired upon by unknown gunmen at his home in Choudhary Gund area of Shopian district, today. The civilian identified as Poran Krishan Bhat belongs to Kashmiri Pandit community. Soon after the incident, Indian troops and police cordoned off the area and launched searches to nab the attackers.

On the other hand, Narendra Modi’s shinning India further slipped six places on the Global Hunger Index and ranked 107 out of 121 countries, far worse than all countries in South Asia except for war-torn Afghanistan. The GHI score is calculated with consideration of four indicators – undernourishment, child wasting, child stunting and child mortality. Last year, India stood at 101st position.—KMS
