Kashmir clampdown continues during Eid

Scotland Correspondent

Troops in Indian administered Kashmir have allowed some Muslims to go to local mosques to take part in prayers for the Eid festival – although there’s still a ban on any large gatherings – while communications and internet links remain cut off.

The clampdown – after India suddenly revoked the special status for the state of Jammu and Kashmir – has made it almost impossible to verify what’s going on there.

Ciaran Jenkins has been speaking to some of the Kashmiri community inĀ AirdrieĀ about the situation.
