India sacks Kashmir employees for threatening ‘security of state’

Srinagar (HRNW)  On May 1, the day the world marks as International Labour Day, Idrees Jan was summoned to the magistrate’s office in Indian-administered Kashmir’s Kupwara district and handed an envelope.

The envelope contained an order that left the 39-year-old stunned – he had been sacked from his job as a teacher in a government school.

Jan is the first among three Kashmiri employees to have been terminated this month by the disputed region’s chief administrator, handpicked by New Delhi, after the government implemented a series of new laws aimed at stemming “anti-India” sentiment.
