"Azadi": Huge Protests, Clashes With Cops In Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir

In Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), civilian unrest has ignited protests against inflation, taxation, and power shortages, evolving into a demand for rights and freedom. Clashes with police ensued, resulting in a police officer's death and injuries to 90 others. Demonstrators, led by the Jammu and Kashmir Joint Awami Action Committee, advocate for "azadi" (freedom), confronting security forces in Muzaffarabad and other districts. Traders play a prominent role, prompting arrests after calling for a strike. Shaukat Nawaz Mir, Chairman of the Traders Association Muzaffarabad, and Action Committee member decries police brutality and urges widespread participation in protests. The situation underscores escalating tensions and the populace's fervent push for autonomy in PoK.
