Kashmir an open air prison: Mehbooba
Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party president and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said Kashmir has been turned into an open air prison.
Mehooba was responding to the statement of Chief of Defence, Staff, General Bipin Rawat”s speech at the first Ravi Kant Singh Memorial lecture series in Guwahati Assam in which he has said “restrictions imposed following the scrapping of Article 370 may return to the Kashmir valley at the cost of freedom of movement because of terror strikes”.
Mehbooba in a tweet said “Even after turning Kashmir into an open air prison, Bipin Rawat’s statement comes as no surprise because repression is GOIs only method to deal with the situation in J&K. It also contradicts their official narrative that all is well here.”
“After taking such stringent, harsh & repressive measures like mass arrests, suspension of internet at will, frisking people (not sparing even kids), seizing bikes plus two wheelers & setting up new security bunkers all over what is left to do? ” she asked while posting pictures of recent frisking and new bunkers.
