Today, I want to be succinct and clear in my article. Being a Kashmiri muslim, I can’t turn a blind eye to what is happening in Indian Occupied Kashmir. The situation is bloodcurdling and monstrous in Indian occupied Kashmir since Indian army arrived in the valley. I believe that no one can gainsay that Indian Army has crossed all limits in the valley.
The Indian Army has tortured one out of five people living in the occupied Kashmir, yet the plight and suffering of Kashmiri Muslims are largely undocumented in mainstream Indonesian media outlets.
According to human rights report that 500,000 lakh Kashmiri people have been killed by Indian army. Thousands of women have been raped.
Thousands of Kashmiri people have been killed by Indian army in custody, extrajudicial execution and enforced disappearance and Indian army is completely under impunity.
According to Telegraph, Indian forces were physically torturing detainees with beatings, electrocutions and sexual interference.
“According to one detained youth, I was beaten, and hung upside down. I was kept naked, tied to a rope, my genitals and my toes were given electric shocks, and a roller was run over my legs”
This is not the memory of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, it is the testimony of a young Kashmiri youth who was picked up and interrogated by Indian forces in 2004.
The same methods are being used today. India is trying hard to silence Kashmiri people through continued cruelties and worst human rights violations.
Our occupier (India) has the world’s third largest army, most of which is stationed in Kashmir. It has the state-of-the-art technology. We are the people of resistance, we have no army, we have no media, but our greatest strength is truth and determination.
It indicates to me that India isn’t aware regarding this saying, “you can jail a revolutionary, but you can’t jail the revolution.”
