Zero Deaths in Kashmir? People’s Testimonies Belie Official Claims 4.5

Correction Note: At 13:38, we have said that on August 5, 17-year-old Ayub Khan died after suffocating on tear gas in Kashmir's Downtown area. In fact, it was on August 17, that the 55-year-old Ayub Khan died from the same reason. We accidentally got the date and Ayub Khan's age wrong.

The Modi government claims there have been no deaths in Kashmir since the revocation of Article 370. But testimonies from people prove that apart from the scores of injured, at least three people have died in Srinagar. The Wire’s Senior Editor Arfa Khanum Sherwani met the family of Ayub Khan in Srinagar to find out how he died.

Many violent incidents have been created by separatists in Kashmir many times when people have been killed. The wire never comes to criticize those separatist incidents. The journalist is conducting interviews peacefully, that itself is a proof of peaceful condition. Journalists should try to pacify people to remain peaceful and assure them that Kashmir will progress better now.

Shame shame shame .. Why is govt. Lying about the facts ?
Hiding the ground level news of J&k is the real form of Dictatorship ...It is not nationalism ... After De- operationalisation of article 370, the fundamental rights are also applicable there but it is totally suppressed by this fascist govt.. Nothing is happening good in J&K.. Some Media (godi media) are only showing the celebration in Ladhakh region.. That's okay..but why don't they show the views of people in Jammu, Kashmir, kargil regions..
This fascist govt had also lied in the parliament regarding the views of Sardar Patel, Ambedkar, Jay Prakash Narayan, Lohia, Nehru ...Shame on this rss agenda of communal nationlist Jingoism..Shame shame

My heart goes out to the people of Kashmir. As Indian, we need to treat the people of Kashmir as our own. Unfortunately, the current government only wants the land and not its people. May Allah bless this family and grant the deceased the status of martyr :(
