SRINAGAR: The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has called for a complete shutdown strike in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir on March 7 against the scheduled visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the territory.

According to a Kashmir Media Service report on Monday, call for the strike has been announced by Advocate Abdul Rashid Minhas, the APHC spokesperson in a statement in Srinagar, and it aims to express Kashmiris’ rejection of all anti-Kashmir agendas of India’s Hindutva regime and demanded the resolution of the Kashmir dispute to foster peace in the region.

The shutdown, as per APHC spokesman, is intended to protest against India’s illegal occupation, the implementation of Hindutva agendas in Kashmir, and to reiterate the persistent demand for the settlement of the Kashmir dispute.
