APHC leader, Mohammad Shafi Lone in a statement in Srinagar said that in view of the lack of coronavirus test facility in the occupied territory, the teams of World Health Organization and other international non-governmental organizations should be given an access to Jammu and Kashmir to suggest preventive measures for the local population.

Meanwhile, analysts who closely watch the ground situation in occupied Kashmir have said that despite the pandemic of coronavirus India continues with its anti-Kashmir policies in blatant violation of UN resolutions. These analysts who preferred to remain anonymous for their safety in their interviews said, August 5 actions, new domicile law and delimitation are parts of India’s sinister plan to further colonize Jammu and Kashmir. They added that New Delhi’s anti-Kashmir moves were meant to dilute the historical and geographical status of the territory.
