In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their unabated acts of state terrorism martyred 11 Kashmiris including a minor girl and a woman during the last month of July. According to the data issued by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service, today, during the month, 80 people were critically injured due to the use of brute force and firing of pallets, bullets and teargas shells by Indian police and paramilitary personnel against peaceful protesters in the territory. Forty-six Hurriyat leaders, activists and youth were also arrested.
Meanwhile, High Court Bar Association has expressed serious concern over the directions issued by Indian police asking for details of mosques and their managements in the territory.
In a statement in Srinagar, the association termed the move as interference in religious affairs of Muslims.
It said the directive is discriminatory as it singles out the Muslim community and subjects it to unfair treatment, which is contrary to the concept of freedom of religion.
