Life in Indian-controlled Kashmir has come to a standstill as businesses have been closed down to protest a visit by the Indian Home Affairs minister. The Indian minister’s visit is aimed at exploring the possibilities of restoring peace to the region through negotiations. However as our correspondent Syed Ali Safvi reports, Kashmiris believe the move is merely a political gesture given the fact that all top pro-independence leaders have either been jailed or put under house detention.
