Kashmir observes complete shutdown

A complete shutdown has been observed in Indian- administered Kashmir as people protest the killing of killing a local youth by government forces, Press TV reports.

The call for shutdown was given after Indian forces killed 20-year old Irshad Ahmed Shah and injured three other civilians as they opened fire on protesters in the town of Sopore near Kashmir’s main city of Srinagar on Monday.

All shops, business establishments, schools, colleges and government offices have been closed and public transport is not running.

The demonstrators were protesting the killing of a pro-independence fighter in the mountainous Himalayan region.
The latest act of violence has sparked condemnation and anger across the region as people demand prosecution of those guilty.

“A number of innocent killings have taken place in the past, inquiries have been ordered in a number of cases, but no action has been taken against anyone, our youths are being unnecessarily harassed by security forces and consequently they are forced to take up arms,” opposition leader Mehbooba Mufti told the Press TV correspondent.

Curfew was imposed in the area to contain the situation and authorities have ordered an inquiry into the incident.

Kashmir lies at the heart of more than 66 years of hostility between India and Pakistan. Both neighbors claim the region in full but have partial control over it.

The neighbors agreed on a ceasefire in 2003 and launched a peace process the following year. Since then, there have been sporadic clashes, with both sides accusing the other of violating the ceasefire.

Thousands of people have been killed in Kashmir over the past 20 years.

    The Kashmir Genocide

    Y the evisceral hate of the Kashmiris by the Hindoos ? They are not Indians by DNA,Race or Religion. Is it the white skin complex or the fact that the ancestors of the Kashmiris pillaged Hindoosthan and also raped/ravished Hindoo women and destroyed Satanic Hindoo Temples and Idols ?

    What is wrong with destroying Hindoo Temples and Idols or bombing them ? It was done by Moses,Abraham,Jesus,John the Baptist ,Prophet of Islam,Gobind Singh etc.Ghazni and his tribes just followed the path of the prophets !

    And what is wrong with raping Hindoo women (wives of Brahmins/ Banias etc.)? Hindoo Gods raped Hindoo women and wives of Brahmins all the time ! In reality – the Mughals fertilised the Indian race and created a new race – one which the Indians consider to be a martial hindoo race.

    Y is there a lack of intellectual defense among Islamists of the so called ravishing of the Hindoo Frigid Vaginas by the Mongols, Afghans and Mughals ?

    It is what they deserved ! The Hindoo Gods created Brahmins just to rape their wives ! The best practice model was that the Brahmin used to meditate in the forests and be celibates – inspite of having beautiful wives !

    The vile of the Brahmin was that he used his wife as bait to tempt the Gods to rape his wife – and then cursed the Gods – with a pardon contingent upon on a boon of writing some scriptures and limited morrtality !

    Is there more evil in this cosmos ? The Empirical and Theological proof is given below :

    Sage Atri – As Shiva,Indra and Vishnu , “raped his wife Anasuya”
    Sage Gautama – As Indra “raped his wife Ahilya”, by stealth he said the following from the Skanda PuranaV.iii.136.2-16
    O beautiful la dy of uncensured features, resort to me, the king of Devas, “Sport about with me”.
    What will you do with this Brahmana “who has become lean and emaciated”, due to his “over- zealousness for purity and conventional rites and austerities” and Vedic studies
    Lord Rama’s father – His wife had “sex with a horse and 11 Brahmins”, to make Lord Rama
    Lord Rama’s Story – “Vishnu raped Tulsi/Vrinda”, as her husband , was a Brahmin – then the “whore cursed Vishnu” to be “born as Rama” and have “his wife raped by Ravana” – all “due to the impotentica of 1 Brahmin”
    What did the Aswins say before they raped the Brahmin Sukanya
    Mahabharata 3.123
    “O divinely beautiful damsel, do thou, forsaking Chyavana accept one of us for husband. It behoveth thee not to spend thy youth fruitlessly…”
    Ved Vyas ,who wrote the Mahabharata, was the “bastard son”, of Rishi Parashar and Satyawa
    As per the Harivamsa Purana,Sage Vashishtha’s daughter , Shatrupa had sexual relations with Daddy Cool

    It is the cosmic wheel of providence as nothing can happen which Allah does not will
