DW exposes India's claims of 'all is well' in occupied Kashmir.

KARACHI -- Deutsche Welle or DW, a German state-owned public international broadcaster, has exposed Indian government and its state institutions' blatant lies over occupied Kashmir. Kashmiris spoke to DW, and revealed that Indian media reports the ongoing situation in the region as 'all is well', however the actual condition was in contradiction to it. 'We don't believe India,' they told DW. India-occupied Kashmir has been under a strict lockdown since August 4 after New Delhi revoked the region's special status. A Kashmiri journalist has now been prevented by authorities from flying abroad, reported DW. The Indian government decided to strip Jammu and Kashmir of its statehood and turn it into two territories directly governed by New Delhi. The move touched off anger among Kashmiris. To suppress any unrest, authorities have cut all communications, imposed a curfew and deployed thousands of additional troops to a region which is already one of the most militarised in the world.
