India’s revoking IoK special status may lead to an end of its occupation: Fawad


ISLAMABAD, Aug 26 (APP):Federal Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain Monday said the Modi government’s act of revoking articles 370 and 35A of the constitution had reignited the Kashmir freedom movement, which would ultimately lead to an end of its occupation.

Talking to newsmen after the launch of Tele Health Services here at the COMSAT headquarters, he said the Indian media was supporting the Modi government policies regarding the held state. The Indian Press Council even termed the government’s censorship on news about Jammu and Kashmir legal before a court, which was condemnable.

The Indian journalists’ bias vis-e-vis Jammu and Kashmir had been fully exposed, he added.

Fawad lamented that the people of Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK) were living in miserable condition for the last 21 days amid continuous curfew, which had turned the valley into a jail. Most of the Kashmiri leaders were already in jail while the rest were being put behind bars since the change in the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, he added.
