A birth and a death amid occupied Kashmir's harsh lockdown - DAWN.COM

Around the time Mohammad Sikander Bhat lay dying at home in Indian-occupied Kashmir's main city of Srinagar, Shafiq Ahmed was racing to get his pregnant wife to a hospital, negotiating about 85km (53 miles) of highways through a maze of heavily guarded checkpoints.

Amid severe movement restrictions and a total communications blockade, triggered by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's decision to withdraw special rights for the occupied Jammu and Kashmir region, one man perished without his last wish fulfilled: that of seeing his three daughters.
