Indian forces deny Kashmiris right of Eid prayers, animal sacrifice
The entire occupied territory including Doda and Kishtwar areas of Jammu region is reeling under strict curfew and communication blackout since last Monday when India unilaterally revoked Article 370 of its Constitution.
Eid prayers were allowed in only a few small mosques located in peripheral areas of the Kashmir valley.
As people came out of these mosques, they started shouting anti-India slogans, which prompted the authorities to immediately re-impose curfew.
The valley's political leadership including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and former puppet ministers Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti are in house detention or in jails.
