In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a media report has said that by holding the G20 tourism meeting in Srinagar, Indian authorities hoped to show that the territory is now peaceful and stable following the revocation of its special status but contrary to this the Kashmiris termed the campaign just a facade.
As per the report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News, the locals said the Kashmiri people are oppressed and can't speak openly. The locals said that the Modi regime wanted to show the world that occupied Kashmir is peaceful but it is not.
The UK-based The Guardian newspaper quoted Hafsa Kanjwal, assistant professor South Asian history at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania, as having said that India had gone into propaganda overdrive in Srinagar to hide the Kashmiri dissent while also arresting activists in raids before the G20 meetings.
Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front in a statement issued in Srinagar hailed the sacrifices of its illegally detained Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik for the Kashmir cause on the completion of his one year of illegal life sentence by India's pliant judiciary.
Yasin Malik was sentenced to life imprisonment by an Indian court on May 25, last year, in a false case registered against him.
The occupation authorities booked four innocent Kashmiris under black law Public Safety Act in Baramulla district and shifted them to Kot Bhalwal Jail in Jammu.
