Kashmir matters not Kashmiri
Kashmir Updates - Dr Muhammad Khan - March 19, 2019
TRACING the history of Kashmir under Indian occupation, there emerged a clear indication that for India ‘Kashmir matters’ not the Kashmiris. In recent times, this conclusion was more pronounced after the Pulwama attack, February 14, 2019. Sequel to this attack, Indian Army and its paramilitary forces started massive arrests and indiscriminate killing of Kashmiris all over the Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK). Not only in the IoK, but Government sponsored RSS undertook a mass mobilization of its armed men to kill, torture, set ablaze the houses of Muslims in entire India. Thousands of Muslim houses have been burnt in India and IoK, since the day of attack, which killed over 40 Paramilitary Indian soldiers.
The shocking part of this episode is that Indian Police and Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) rather stopping these RSS gangsters from this violence against Muslims, facilitated them (RSS and Hindutva elements) in identification of Muslim communities, their businesses, shops and other work places. Kashmiris working in India and those studying in various Indian institutions were arrested, tortured and forced to go back to IoK, where Indian Army was all set to torture and humiliate them. These Indian brutalities are continuing unabated till-date. According to Sikhs, residing in IoK, these Indian oppressions and suppressions on Muslims reminded the memories of 1984, once Indira Ghandi was murdered and thousands of Sikhs all over India were killed and arrested. There have been hundreds of incidents of rapes and molestation of Kashmiri women at the hands of Indian security forces in the IoK.
