India Confiscates Shops of Kashmiri Civilians, Continuing Its Economic Dispossession Of Them

On 29th May, the State Investigation Agency (SIA) of Jammu and Kashmir police confiscated approximately 20 shops in the Kupwara district of north Kashmir. Acting on the orders of the district magistrate, the SIA took action to seal the shops, which were identified as part of a shopping complex owned by the socio-religious welfare organization Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) and designated as an unlawful association.

JeI has been banned by the Indian government in Kashmir for its alleged involvement in the self-determination movement of Kashmir. Its leaders have been detained, schools shut down, and rehabilitation centers for the needy closed.
