Curfew causes food shortage, other hardships in Srinagar

Srinagar, July 20 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, after the Gool incident, lakhs of people have been made hostage in their homes because of strict curfew in Srinagar city and other towns due to which people are facing shortage of commodities. Some people whose family members and relatives are in hospitals suffering immensely as they are not allowed to visit them.

“My brother is admitted in Soura Institute of Medical Sciences. I wanted to see him and give money to my father who is also there for purchasing medicines but I was not allowed to go there,” Abdul Rashid of Hyderpora told media men over phone.

Because of the curfew the people could not buy bread, milk and other edibles. “The shops in our locality are also closed due to curfew,” said Bashir Ahmad, a resident of Nowhatta. “Due to the sudden imposition of curfew large number of families had not bought these commodities in adequate quantity,” he added.

Amid this grim scenario on the ground, the people do not know as when the curfew will be lifted and their miseries would end. The continuation of curfew can make our lives more miserable,” said Ghulam Mohammad of Malaratta.
