Kashmir Curfew Clock facing UN building set up in New York and London
After Islamabad, a digital Curfew Clock has been installed in front of the United Nations (UN) building in New York and London, showing the number of days, hours and minutes since India has kept occupied Kashmir under siege.
The curfew clock campaign has been started by Pakistani diaspora and Kashmiris in London and New York to highlight the atrocious curfew imposed by Narendra Modi’s BJP government on more than seven million Kashmiris after revoking Articles 35A and 370.

Seven vans appeared at key London locations carrying illuminated artwork highlighting the real situation in Indian occupied Kashmir. They served to inform the world about the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Kashmir as a result of India’s actions.
With the hashtag of #SaveKashmir highlighted prominently, the London vans carried a clock which showed the time since the BJP government slapped dreadful communications blackout conditions across the occupied Kashmir region. The curfew has now entered its fifth week in the valley with the curfew clock showing every minute as the clampdown and curfew conditions remain in place.

The banner headline on the vans, written in red, said, “Kashmir under Indian siege, knocking at the world’s conscience”.
People of the Muslim-majority troubled valley have been held hostage by Indian occupying forces since August 5 when New Delhi abrogated Article 370 of its constitution to rob the disputed territory of its autonomy.
Last week, Pakistan had installed a similar curfew clock in the federal capital as the country observed “Kashmir Hour” to express solidarity with the people of held Kashmir.
