STORY: Dozens of school children on Monday (November 25) rallied in Rawalpindi city near Pakistani capital Islamabad to express solidarity with Kashmiri students who had been unable to attend schools due to violence and lockdown in Indian administered Kashmir.

The protesters carried banners and placards, and marched through the streets.

“We will snatch freedom”, they chanted.

Besides the students, the solidarity march was joined by the Hurriyat leaders, members of civil society and people from different walks of life.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the situation continues to remain tense and far from normal in the Kashmir Valley and parts of Jammu region on the 113th day of military siege and lockdown.

The residents continue to observe silent protest by keeping their shops closed and staying away from offices and educational institutions. Ban on internet across all platforms, SMS and prepaid mobile services remains in place in the Valley.

“There has been a lockdown for the last four months (in Indian Kashmir). The schools are closed. All educational institutions are closed. The children can not attend schools. Therefore, the students from Asif School have come out on streets to show solidarity with the students of Occupied Kashmir. This demonstration is a clear message to India against the atrocities, the plight of Indian students who are unable to attend schools and those who can not go out and remain confined to their homes in Indian Kashmir,”said protesters, Pervez Ahmed.

“We want to tell Indian that whatever atrocities and oppression it is committing in Kashmir, it is blinding people there but we will never give up our right. We will get our right to self determination,”said another protester, Zahid Shafi.

Indian police arrested dozens of youth including a Hurriyat activist, Bashir Ahmad Qureshi, in Srinagar on the charge of organizing anti-India protests. The troops conducted cordon and search operations in different areas of Srinagar and other cities.

Indian Defence Ministry has deployed special forces comprising Indian Army, Navy and Air Force in the Kashmir Valley to carry out combined military operations.

On the other hand, speakers at a seminar organized at the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation Secretariat in Jeddah expressed grave concern over the plight of Kashmiris in occupied Jammu and Kashmir. A large number of diplomats and Pakistani and Kashmiri community members attended the event.

OIC Secretary General’s representative on Kashmir, Yousaf Bin Muhammad Al-Zabeay said the OIC attaches great importance to the Kashmiri people and their peaceful struggle for right to self-determination in accordance with the UN resolutions.

Relations between Islamabad and New Delhi, already hostile, have been further tense over India's decision in August to revoke the special status of its portion of the Kashmir region that both countries claim.
