Scrapping of Kashmir's special status sparks massive protests across Pakistan

A series of protest rallies has been held across Pakistan after the Indian government scrapped the special autonomy status for the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir, which is claimed by both countries.

In Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-administered Kashmir about 45 kilometers from the contested frontier between the neighbors, dozens of protesters held black flags and burnt tires.

They held anti-India placards and chanted slogans against New Delhi rule over the scenic valley.

“The abolition of the special status of Kashmir will not serve its purpose,” media outlets quoted Zahid Iqbal, 35, a migrant from Indian-controlled Kashmir as saying.

“We will fight, and we will fight with more vigor,” he added.
