Indian authorities lock down Kashmir's major city on Eid holiday

Indian authorities lock down Kashmir's major city on Eid holidayIndian security forces kept disputed Kashmir’s biggest city of Srinagar largely locked down on Monday, the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha, to prevent any major protests against a decision that scrapped the Himalayan region’s special rights. Frustration is growing in Muslim-majority Kashmir, which is also claimed by Pakistan, over India’s move last week to curtail autonomy for the state of Jammu and Kashmir, including a bar on non-residents buying property. “We want freedom, we are neither a part of India, nor Pakistan,” said Asifa, an 18-year-old woman who was among those protesting after prayers at the shrine of Jinab Sahib in Soura.
