Does J&K People's Movement Leader Shehla Rashid's Allegation Reflect The Resentment Of Kashmiris On The Day Of Eid This Year
J&K People's Movement Political party leader Shehla Rashid's allegations came shortly after Kashmir celebrations of Eid al Adha last week under strict vigilance.
Although the central argument of her allegations revolved around the Indian Army. The local officers found the situations to be absolutely fine. The Eid prayers were offered peacefully across Jammu and Kashmir according to the administration reports.
In totality, around 65 thousand people offered prayers in a different region of Kashmir where 10,000 were in Baramulla and 13,000 in Budgam. Although In Srinagar Jama masjid was kept out of binding for offering prayers due to security reasons.
Meanwhile, it has also been claimed that Reuters and BBC have published a fake video of protests in Kashmir as told by the C.R.P.F head in Kashmir. The Governor urged Indian media present there to do extensive reporting over Kashmir to break the hoax of Fake news.
In Shehla Rashid's case, although there is no denying the fact that the situations are still tense there, the army denied her claims as baseless and false.
However, the curfew had not been lifted with only some ease provided by the administration.
There were some small incidents of stone-pelting which were termed as “ineffective” by the local authorities. On the other side of the L.O.C in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (P.O.K) there were mass protests by the people demanding freedom of Indian occupied Kashmir.
These mass protests were said to be covered by International Media houses like Aljazeera. This created a sense of retaliation among those leaders who have so far haven't come to terms with the scrapping of Article 370.
Tweets exchanged between Indian administrators and the other side of the L.O.C posed as a threat to the valley on the same day.
A senior Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir tweeted this information and Got an appropriate response from Indian Retd. Major Gaurav Arya.
Jammu And Kashmir Eid Celebrations 2019:
only 20% of the shops were set to open on the day of Eid people are facing major issues due to a total shutdown of all communication services. The rations are running out of stock in peoples house and it’s not easy for them to go out and buy their necessities. 2.5 lakh livestock was brought and sold in the markets of Kashmir before the festival.
National Security Advisor Ajit Doval took an aerial survey of the valley especially the downtown Srinagar. He also went to J&K police and CRPF headquarters to assess the level of preparedness for any atrocity.
People were seen to be coming out of their homes, collecting all their necessities, banks and ATM were also kept open.
Now the people fear what eventually they will have to face after the curfew is lifted.
“ The situation is under control, peace is prevailing in the valley apart from few mischievous elements, everyone is celebrating Eid peacefully………there has been some incident of protests that too at a very insignificant level, ”The Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Satya Pal Malik Stated
“There rises no question of open firing or any kind of aggression from the security forces, although three were admitted to hospital with pellet gun injury below the knee,” he added.
Eid was celebrated peacefully in the valley but there were no new dresses, no outings, some were not even able to contact their loved ones and wish them “Eid Mubarak”. This might have has brought great resentment among the people and have given a reason for J&K Leader;s like Shehla a reason to protest and make allegations on the Indian Army.
