Indian authorities have stiffened restrictions on people’s movements in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday to prevent possible protests triggered by Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s speech at UN General Assembly.

Soon after the speech, hundreds of Kashmiris came out of their homes, shouting slogans in support of Pakistan calling for the liberation of Kashmir reports the Reuters.

Police vans fitted with speakers made public announcements in some parts of Srinagar about movement restrictions while additional troops were deployed to prevent any protests.

The troops also blocked access to the main business centre of Srinagar with razor wire.

In his address at the UNGA, PM Khan lambasted Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and his party’s ultra-nationalist style of governance. He said that if the world failed to intervene then the two-nuclear armed nations will come at the brink of war.

Khan further said that Pakistan won’t have any option in case of war and the entire world will have to face the consequences.

Speaking on Kashmir, Khan said that the issue was the reason he came to the session and speak about what is happening in the what Islamabad terms as – occupied valley. In his address, the Khan said that India ended the special status of occupied Kashmir, flouting eleven resolutions of the UN Security Council.

He said that it is the responsibility of the UN to ensure that Kashmiris get their right to self-determination. Under the guise of ‘Islamic terrorism’ India is inflicting more cruelty on the people of Kashmir, he said.

“There is no other narrative left for India,” said the PM, adding that there is another chance of a Pulwama-like incident to blame and ‘bomb’ Pakistan. “India must lift this inhuman curfew,” said PM Imran, further saying that ‘picked-up persons’ from the valley should be released by India.

Due to these issues, eight million people under lockdown in the valley are likely to get radicalised, he said. Speaking on the menace of Islamophobia, Khan said that billions of Muslims are living as minorities in the western countries and since 9/11 the rise in Islamophobia is ‘alarming’.

PM Imran told the UN that there should be an understanding of other faiths, but they are seen as creating division among the global population. “Hijab has become an issue in some countries… it is seen as a weapon,” he said. “There is no such thing as radical Islam,” said Imran, pointing out that all religions have individuals carrying out radical acts.
