Kashmir protest calls for resolution at UN General Assembly

Hundreds marched in Soura on the outskirts of Srinagar, the summer capital of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, on Friday, calling for the resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

The march coincided with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi addresses to the 74th UN General Assembly (UNGA).

Footage shows hundreds of protesters, including many women and children, marching through the streets. Some protesters also burned and trampled an Indian flag.

One demonstrator appealed to the UN “to resolve the Kashmir issue,” warning that “there is only one way for us – either to resolve the Kashmir issue or we will pick up guns.”

Security was ramped up across Srinagar, with fresh restrictions imposed in some parts of city and barbed wire installed in security-sensitive areas.

Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir has been on lockdown since the beginning of August, when New Delhi revoked Article 370 of the Indian constitution, stripping Jammu-Kashmir of its autonomous status. A curfew has been imposed as well as restrictions on travel, communications and movement. The move sparked outrage in Pakistan, which responded by cutting off diplomatic and economic ties with India.
