The British Guardian newspaper highlighted the continuing tension between India and Pakistan over Kashmir, saying that as Eid al-Adha approached, cities seemed empty in contrast to their nature at this time, as Muslims shop in preparation for the occasion and the number of armed security forces and local police outnumbered the population. All communications are still blocked.

The central market in Srinagar, Lal Chowk, is usually crowded with people. Every year crowds pour into stores to buy clothes, jewelry and sweets. Sheep and goats – traditionally offered as a sacrifice – are brought to the market by nomads from the mountains of Kashmir.

But this week Lal Chowk was deserted, according to the Guardian. Only two men – armed Indian police – stood in front of closed market shops and ice cream shops.

The newspaper said that Srinagar, the main city in Kashmir, was paralyzed after the dramatic declaration issued by the Indian government on Monday, which stripped the region of self-rule and divided into two.

Our lives are different. This is injustice. We are forced to go out on the roads and fight against injustice” Nasrat Amin, who was on the empty streets of Srinagar trying to buy medicines, was quoted as saying.
