She condemned “severely injuring thousands, blinding and handicapping hundreds by killer pellet guns, placing millions of Kashmiris under strict curfew with absolutely no communication, ban on telephone lines, internet, mobiles services”.

“Despite all what is going on in Kashmir from last 27 days, Indian leadership is in a constant state of denial and is trying hard to dub peoples movement in Jammu Kashmir as a sponsored one,” she said.
