India's PM uses Independence Day to defend Kashmir changes

Kashmir: India's Modi hails 'path-breaking' changes amid lockdown

Pakistan wrote a letter to the council on the human rights violations in Indian-Administered Kashmir and its repeal of Kashmir's special autonomous state. The restive region is a flash point between the nuclear-armed archrivals. Ghafoor also claimed that five Indian soldiers were killed and their bunkers were damaged in the firing.

Army spokesperson Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor said in a tweet Friday that "another fearless son of soil lost his life in the line of duty" in Buttal town.

Thousands of Pakistanis and Kashmiris waving their respective flags protested outside the Indian High Commission in London on Thursday in support of the people of the occupied Jammu and Kashmir. Both sides continued exchanging fire, prompting villagers to move to safer places, the statement added.

After finding that none of the other members of the Council wanted the full-fledged session that Pakistan had requested, China made its own request for the scaled-down closed-door consultation, which would preclude Pakistan speaking at it, according to a diplomat with knowledge of the Council workings.

"Since 1947 Kashmir has been struggling to be free from India".

On the first Independence Day since the revocation of Kashmir's special status, the security restrictions in Srinagar were even more stringent.

He said the issue related to changes in a temporary provision of the Constitution of India and was the sole prerogative of the country.

In a series of tweets today (Thursday), she said Russian Federation has also endorsed the demand of Pakistan and civilized world is taking notice of Modi government s unilateral and illegal action.

"Article 370 should have been removed a long time ago, but better late than never", Amarjeet Singh, a businessman from New Delhi, said outside the Red Fort as India finalized preparations on Wednesday.

"It is good. Everyone will be benefited by this, because every common man will be able to work there and start a business there", Singh said.

"In the last 70 years we became a 2 trillion-dollar economy, but in the last five years, we added 1 trillion dollars to the economy".

He also announced a new position of Chief of Defence Staff, saying the move will "sharpen coordination" between the army, navy and air force services and pitched for simultaneous federal and state elections, as well as a national discussion on the country's population explosion. "I feel that till the time we become a greater regional power, it may be a little bit too early, in my opinion, since like I said, we are not privy to all the government's thinking", he adds. "Now Modi has changed the law by force to stop Kashmir's autonomy", he said.

Mr Khan also repeated comments comparing the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the ideological parent of India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, to the German Nazi Party.
