Authorities in occupied Kashmir have further tightened curfew to prevent people from marching toward the United Nations office at Sonawar in Srinagar after Friday prayers.

Call for the march has been given by the local leaders through posters appearing in Srinagar and other parts of the Kashmir valley.

They have urged every young, old, men and women to join the mega-march to convey to India and the world that the Kashmiris would not accept Indian occupation over their territory and Hindu culture.

The march is also aimed at resisting the Indian attempt to change the demography of Kashmir through settlement of the outsiders in the territory. The clerics will raise the issue during their Friday sermons.

In an attempt to block the march, the occupation authorities have converted the valley particularly Srinagar into a military garrison by deploying Indian troops and paramilitary personnel in every nook and corner.

The forces’ personnel have blocked all roads by erecting barricades and using concertina wires and confined the people to their homes to stop them from coming out on road to protest against Indian aggression.
