75 political activists detained in Indian Occupied Kashmir after local elections
SRINAGAR: Continuing the fascist policies of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Indian government detained 75 political leaders and activists after an alliance of regional parties gained victory in a local election.
The District Council election was the first democratic exercise since Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government last year revoked the special status of the Muslim-majority region however, it has been marred with controversy after New Delhi cracked down on the opposition and rounded up hundreds of people to preempt protests against India’s fascism.
The arrests include separatist leaders and members of the Jamaat-i-Islami group.
The detentions undermine the voice of the people who are being stopped from exercising their democratic rights according to activists in Kashmir.
The victory of the alliance is a testament that the people of Kashmir have not accepted Modi’s decision to end Kashmir’s special status according to Omar Abdullah, a former CM.
