Curfew Clock Campaign Kicks Start In New York After London

NEW YORK: Kashmiris have launched a ‘curfew clock’ campaign in New York after London to highlight the dreadful curfew imposed by Narendra Modi’s government on more than eight million Kashmiris after revoking Article 370.

Several vans appeared at key New York locations carrying illuminated artwork highlighting the real situation in Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) and informing the world about the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Kashmir as a result of Modi government’s action.

With the hashtag of #SaveKashmir highlighted prominently, the New York vans were carrying a curfew clock which showed the number of days, hours and minutes since the BJP government slapped dreadful curfew conditions across the Held Kashmir region. The curfew has now entered its fifth week in the valley with the “curfew clock” showing every minute as the clampdown and curfew conditions remain in place.

The clock with the blood is dripping, demonstrates the bloodshed and rights violations of Kashmiris by Indian occupied forces.

The banner headline on the vans, written in red, said, “Kashmir under Indian siege, knocking at the world’s conscience”.

The one van before the UN building in New York showing to the world body the number of days for which there has been a curfew in place. The ‘Indian curfew clock” reads that curfew in Indian Held Kashmir going on for over five weeks is “a challenge to the world conscience”.

London has seen a largescale activity in support of the people of Kashmir. Arguably, two of the biggest protests in support of Kashmir have held in London, not once but twice in the span of one month. The first protest was held on August 16 and the second on September 3. Both protests saw at least 15 thousand turning out to condemn the Indian government’s actions in Kashmir.
