Protests erupt in Kashmir after four youth arrested by Indian army

SRINAGAR: Violent protests erupted in India-held Kashmir on Sunday after four Kashmiris youths were arrested by Indian troops during a search operation in Pulwama district of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).
According to Kashmir Media Service, soon after arrest of the youths, hundreds of rock-throwing protesters took to the streets and clashed with police and paramilitary troops, who retaliated by firing live ammunition in the air as well as tear gas at several places in Pulwama district. At least six people were injured.
On April 27, Indian troops had martyred three youth in Kulgam district of occupied Kashmir. According to the international media service, the youth were killed during an operation at Lower Munda in Qazingund area of the district.
Earlier on April 25, the troops had martyred four youth during a similar operation in the Melhora area of Shopian district. Indian authorities have also suspended internet service and blocked all entry and exit points in the area.
The people of Kashmir had urged the international community to take notice of their dilemma as they have been living under absolute lockdown since 5th August when New Delhi revoked the region’s sovereign status.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Sunday said India is violating international laws and UN resolutions by maneuvering to change the demography of occupied Kashmir.
The foreign minister said Indian forces have put the entire Kashmiri leadership and thousands of Kashmiri youth in Indian jails to subjugate their voice and fundamental human rights.
 Qureshi  urged the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and the international community to take notice of the grave violation of the international law by India.
