Kashmir marks tense Eid al-Adha under Indian lockdown | DW News

Security forces in India-administered Kashmir allowed some Muslims to walk to local mosques alone or in pairs to pray for the Eid al-Adha festival. This came during an unprecedented lockdown that still forced most people in the disputed region to stay indoors on the Islamic holy day. Some services had political overtones because of the surprise revocation of the special status of the Muslim-majority state of Jammu and Kashmir last week. After outdoor prayers at this Mosque, worshipers in the capital Srinigar briefly protested in the street on their way home. Communications and internet access were cut off for an eighth day by Indian forces.
