تعاني "كشمير" ذات الغالبية المسلمة من سوء شديد في الأوضاع الاقتصادية، وذلك نتيجة تكرار حظر التجول والإضرابات التي أضرت بقطاع السياحة والأعمال، وقيادة سيارات الأجرة وغيرها من القطاعات.
ويأتي ذلك في ظل دور الحكومة الهندية القمعي وتصريحات السياسيين، وممارسات العصابات التابعة لهم في "كشمير" المشتعلة بالأحداث، التي يقع خلالها العديد من القتلى والمصابين؛ مما تسبب في شلل العديد من القطاعات الاقتصادية وزيادة معاناة المسلمين، في ظل فشل حكومي في إقرار العدالة ونشر السلم وحقن الدماء، طبقًا لتصريحات أهالي المنطقة والمراقبين؛ المصدر: شبكة الألوكة.

Strikes, Curfews Eclipse Kashmir Economy
Tightened curfews and frequent strikes have shutdown daily life in India-ruled Kashmir, leaving thousands of people working in tourism, businesses, taxi drivers and even traders suffering a deteriorated economy in the Muslim-majority volatile region.
“Kashmir is conflict zone and in conflict zone along with other sectors economy gets ruined and people suffer,” Rouf Trumbo, president Kashmir Travel Agents Association, told OnIslam.net.
“We have been witnessing financial crises since long whenever there is strike our economy gets effected.
“Irresponsible statements issued from different quarters particularly Indian politicians and high offices regarding likely-hood of some attacks to be carried by guerillas in Kashmir, tourists stop to move to Kashmir.”
An indefinite curfew was imposed in Kashmir’s Shopian district after four Muslim youth were killed by Indian security forces.
“Four persons were killed by CRPF (Indian forces) it is not seen as good thing once innocent people are killed and sentiments of Kashmir Muslim gets involved in that,” Trumbo told Onislam.net adding the innocent killing forced people to observe strike which indirectly affects Kashmir economy.
Recent Shopian episode has added more fuel to fire, with the result the Puja Holidays season also suffered.
“We had booked a group of 30 persons but we received calls from the tourists that there is curfew in Kashmir and we told them it is south Kashmir only but they hesitate to visit valley” Rouf Trumbo told Onislam.net.
The recent turmoil has casted its shadows on tourism as the district has only received 20 percent of 2012 tourists.
“Unless oppression and suppression will not stop the situation will not be normal, Media hype outside the state is also responsible for decrease in tourist inflow,” Trumbo said.
Faiaz Ahmad Bakshi, president of Kashmir hoteliers federation, agreed.
“Any disruption in peace has adverse affect on our economy for running it smoothly we need every type of peace,” Bakshi told Onislam.net.
“We are part of our society, thus can’t separate ourselves from other Muslims of Kashmir, so when any of our brother suffers we cannot isolate ourselves from others.
“We need peace and there should be accountability to armed forces, who kill innocent people.”
