Sanjoy Majumder in Srinagar

From BBC News: “The Human Suffering inside Kashmir’s Struggle

“The stillness is apparent outside the Jamia Masjid, the city’s oldest mosque. No one has been to pray here for days.”

“The streets are empty except for a few stray dogs and policemen, deployed every few meters.”

“Coils of razor wire block several roads. In the old brick houses beyond them, occasionally a window is opened from the upper storeys and someone looks out before shutting it again.”

“It’s been like this for days,” one old man says, as he shops hurriedly in one of the few markets that has remained open.

“We barely have food in our homes.”
