The town of Magam in Budgam district, Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, observed a complete shutdown to mourn the sudden and tragic death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in a helicopter crash. Raisi was highly regarded for his support of the Kashmiri people’s right to self-determination, making his passing a significant loss for many in the region.

Shops in Magam were closed, and the usually bustling streets were notably sparse as the local population expressed solidarity with Iran, which has declared five days of national mourning. The shutdown reflected the deep respect and connection the people of Kashmir felt towards President Raisi.

A massive solidarity rally, primarily organized by the youth of Magam, was in progress at the time of this report. The rally demonstrated the profound impact of Raisi’s death on the community, highlighting the strong bonds of empathy and support between the Kashmiri and Iranian people.

The news of Raisi’s death led to spontaneous gatherings across various parts of Jammu and Kashmir. In Srinagar, at the historic Ghanta Ghar, and in places like Alamgiri Bazar and Magam in Budgam, Kashmiri Muslims assembled with candles and placards to express their sorrow and extend their condolences to the people of Iran. These gatherings symbolized a collective mourning and a tribute to Raisi’s legacy as a supporter of oppressed communities.

The helicopter crash that claimed Raisi’s life occurred near the border with Azerbaijan, adding a layer of geopolitical tension to the tragedy. Raisi’s death has reverberated beyond Iran, affecting those who viewed him as a vocal advocate for international issues, including the struggles of the Palestinian and Kashmiri peoples.
