Let us not forget about Kashmir... By Anza

06 December, 2012

Recently, the Citizens' Council for Justice (CCJ) released a report stating that the Indian army and other government agencies have been brutalising the Kashmiri people while subjecting them to torture, enforced disappearances, killings, destruction of property and molestation of women. The report has been prepared with the assistance of the International People's Tribunal for Human Rights and Justice in Kashmir and Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society. To crush the Kashmiri Liberation Movement, India has employed various techniques including black laws. The Public Safety Act (PSA), Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA), Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act 1990 (TADA) and Armed Forces Special Powers Act 1990 (AFSPA) are enforced in Kashmir despite the fact that they contravene the Indian Constitution and international law. These laws violate basic human rights such as right to life, the right to liberty and security of the person and the right to remedy. These atrocities are a true reflection of the Indian policy of condoning human rights violations by its security forces in occupied Kashmir.
