KASHMIR a nuclear flashpoint
never was and will never be part of India - Intifada

INDIA SMASHES HUMAN-RIGHT VALUES TO SMITHEREENS

PARVEZ IMROZ

A selfless, dedicated human right lawyer and a civil rights activist, Parvez Imroz is internationally recognized for highlighting human right violations, disappearances, rapes and killings through organized fake encounters. Imroz ignoring great risk to his life has filed thousands of habeas corpus petitions on behalf of families whose relatives have disappeared while in custody of the Indian army and its para-military forces. The plea of DNA testing of thousands of unmarked graves of people of all ages disappeared from torture chambers, fake encounters and indiscrimnate arrests are brazenly rejected with threats issued of serious consequences. Indian army has been systematically obfuscating the truth and managing to sustain impunity for ongoing crimes.

 

Godse worshipers, killers of Gandhi adhere to principles of Hindu fascists in letter and spirit

 

The Rights Groups in their findings reveal that over eight thousand people have disappeared directly accusing the Indian army of staging gun battles to cover up killings in cold blood. The Groups state that the victims arrested are never heard of again. The international electronic media quoting the report of Indian government mentioned the state Human Right Commission confirming that thirty eight burial sites contained 2,156 unidentified bodies. The Commission further stated that 574 other bodies found in the graves were identifies as local civilians.

 

Hindustan Times on September 19, 2012 in a report revealed "For every four militants killed in Kashmir since 1989, one army man and three civilians became victims of the bloody violence". The report also stated that 40, 127 people were killed, followed by 13, 853 more killings recorded daily from 1990 to July 31, 2012. Human rights groups in Kashmir put the total killings in between 70,000 and 100,000 with over 8,000 disappearances. There is a good number of Indians who acknowledge the pain and suffering inflicted on people of Kashmir and anyone sympathising and raising a voice for Kashmir cause is branded a traitor.


LICENCE TO KILL WITH IMPUNITY


One of the draconian laws Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) (tip of the ice-berg) gives amnesty to Indian Army to shoot and kill anyone anywhere and a pretext is no compulsion or required. The insensitivity shown by International community to the plight of Kashmiris is puzzling allowing these hapless people to turn into psychological wrecks. Two generations are wiped out, the process continues and one fails to understand the behaviour of the followers of erstwhile non-violent "Mahatma" Gandhi. Kashmir is not a bilateral issue of two hostile nuclear nations but a human problem of rightful owners of the state of Kashmir. The dangerous genocidal law AFSPA is backed by other carefully extended more lethal oppressive and tyrannical laws to decimate a defenceless population to claim Kashmir as HINDU LAND.

 

ARROGANCE CROSSES ALL LIMITS

 

"We are proud to be Indians - get them by their balls - hearts & minds will follow"

 

  • The Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act [TADA]; under which a person can be detained without formal charge or trial for up to one year for SUSPECTED TERRORIST or DISRUPTIVE activities, Court hearings must be conducted IN SECRET! The court has the power to keep the identity of any witness secret, including the accuser! Confessions are permissible as evidence if the police assure they were obtained voluntarily.

  • The National Security Act [NSA], under which any person can be, detained WITHOUT CHARGE OR TRIAL for up to one year to prevent them from acting in a manner prejudicial to state security, the maintenance of public order, or relations with a foreign power.

  • The Jammu & Kashmir Public Safety Act [JKPSA] empowers India to detain persons without trial for up to FOUR YEARS for a broad range of activities, including such nebulous charges as promoting, propagating, or attempting to create feelings of enmity, hatred or disharmony on grounds of religion, race, community, or region.

  • The Armed Forces Special Powers Act [AFSPA] empowers Indian Army to search homes WITHOUT WARRANTS, make arrests without warrants, and destroy suspected hideouts of potential militants, and THE RIGHT TO SHOOT-TO-KILL with total immunity from prosecution.The draconian law (tip of the ice-berg) gives amnesty to Indian Army to shoot and kill anyone anywhere and a pretext is no compulsion. The insensitivity shown by International community to the plight of Kashmiris is puzzling allowing these hapless people to turn into psychological wrecks. Two generations are wiped out and the process continues. One fails to understand the behaviour of the followers of non-violent Gandhi whose non-violent slogan always ended in violence. Kashmir is not a bilateral issue of two hostile nuclear nations but a human problem of rightful owners of the state of Kashmir

Indian army apprehends 2 terrorists

Kashmir, as we know, is going through difficult times, and the going seems tough as again speaking out the truth becomes real hard and at times impossible. In a vibrant democracy, freedom of press and right to information professed allows running of normal day to day affairs smoothly to a reasonable extent. On the contrary, the unpleasant issues like human right violations, indiscriminate killings, house searches backed by draconian laws, adds humiliation and resultant psychological problems for the effected populace, which become an embarrassment, especially under the watchful eyes of the international community.

Generally people with no other option depend on the information allowed for consumption and policy directions formulated and followed by the media circles in the "broader national interest". People of India, unfortunately, are fed with information far from truth and proponents of democracy concept expect people to have the right to know everything about anything that happens on local or international level.


INDIA FIGHTS HOSTILE

HUMANRIGHTS VIOLATION
UNPRECEDENTED

INDIAN RAPE CULTURE USED
AS WEAPON IN KASHMIR

British Foreign Secretary William Hague set to tackle Africa war rape on a fact finding mission to Africa gave him an opportunity to collect evidence to take to the foreign ministers of the G8 who meet in London on April 10, 2013. Mr Hague called for tougher action on warzone rapists citing such acts of sexual violence as breaching the Geneva Convention. Mr Hague is reportedly said: "Yet more often than not the international community looks away, the perpetrators of these brutal crimes walk free and the cycle of injustice and conflict is repeated. We have to shatter this culture of impunity." Kashmir, which has suffered in bigger way hope and expected Mr Hague to remember them as well on G8 meet and not to look away and ignore suffering Kashmiris.

 

Yasmina hailing from Wantpora Hawal in downtown Srinagar was rushed to the hospital after developing complications due to exposure to pepper gas used by Indian troops to quell the uprising. The pregnant lady was operated upon and her foetus terminated. It is reported that the placenta was removed by the surgeons after administration of anaesthesia. The State Human Right Commission, while taking suo motu cognizance of news reports about use of pepper gas and its harmful effects unsuccessfully urged Indian army to stop the use of pepper gas. Besides, the experts and doctors, while warning about the harmful and hazardous effect, have termed it as life threatening. (Ishfaq Tantry, Srinagar: March 18, 2013).

 

KASHMIR MLA CALLS INDIAN PROBES A JOKE

 

Member Kashmir Legislative Assembly, Langate, Engineer Rasheed condemned firing on civilians in Pulwama, Kashmir and said that the incident was an eye-opener for those who gave Kashmiris sermons of peace and non-violence and that use of force against civilian protestors could be justified by saying that they were pelting stones. IGP (Inspector General Police) Kashmir Shiv Murari Sahai confessed that use of force could have been avoided and emphasized need to take stern action against those who were always in search of an opportunity to quench their thirst for human blood. Rejecting the magisterial probe into such incidents had become a symbol of joke, cheating and denial in Kashmir.    (Rising Kashmir: 29 Dec 2012).

CREDIBILITY OF "INCREDIBLE INDIA"

 

One morning of Dec-Jan 1990, notorious Indian CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) knock at the door of Abdul Ahad Bhat of Batmaloo, Srinagar and demand the TV set to watch their favourite program Ramayana. The lady of the house opens the door to find uniformed armed infantry men staring at her with the demand and the next minute she collapses and is rushed by her relations to the hospital to be declared dead. In Kashmir incredible India does such miracles on daily basis.

 

THE KILLING FIELDS

 

Over one million trigger happy armed men in uniform, who do not understand the language, culture, religion, ethos and behaviour, pounce on local population with vengeance and a mindset to eliminate the populace to occupy this rich paradise belonging to the poor inhabitants. It is amazing to find the "GOOD PEOPLE" of the world turning a blind eye to these atrocities committed with impunity. UN can see what happens in Syria, Lybia or Iran but when it comes to Kashmir they look the other way and one wonders why?

 

More than one hundred thousand men, women and children killed in the last twenty seven years. An independent Kashmir can be a bridge and instrumental between two hostile nuclear nations. Censorship imposed in "Indian democracy" conveniently and with suitability worsens the situations. Indian army makes sure to confine populace behind closed doors as millions on the roads create an embarrassing situation and international community is inclined to ask few questions.

THE MESSAGE LOUD & CLEAR

WHAT ARE WE BEING PUNISHED FOR?

Kashmir is not a territorial dispute between India and Pakistan but an occupation of the land of peaceful people in flagrant violation of international commitments made from time to time.

 

This is kaniJung 2010 [fight with stones and bricks]. The link for videos below throws ample light on the current political situation:

KASHMIR INTIFADA INDIAN ARMY´S BRAZEN
ARROGANT BRUTALITY

 

HINDU RELIGIOUS TERRORISM

 

 

For the last seven decades, the religious fanatics and politicians of India used the emotionally charged up atmosphere to fulfil its political agenda. It is done at the cost of thousands of lives of defenseless and hapless people of Kashmir. Due to nuclear capabilities of warring countries of the sun-continent, the solution to this vexed problem with a fixed time frame can only be possible through tripartite talks giving main contenders, the people of Kashmir, the right to choose their future. Kashmiri Negotiators have to be extra careful not to get bogged down, to allow India drag the issue to result in fatigue and frustration.

 

Under the changed circumstances, Sir Owen Dixon´s plan can offer the basis for a settlement and regional plebiscite with inclusion of third option of an independent Kashmir could be acceptable to all the parties and this cannot be done without the mediation of a neutral power or United Nations Organisation.


ORGANISED DISAPPEARENCES

A 354-page report compiled by the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) and the International People's Tribunal on Human Rights and Justice in Kashmir, analysed 214 cases of abuse and highlighted the role of officials in the killing of nearly 70 people and the disappearances of 8,000 people over two decades, BBC´s Riyaz Masroor in Srinagar says. The report names Indian military officials of very senior rank as perpetrators.

 

Japan News reports (December 12, 2013) that families of torture, rape victims and 8000 people disappeared in mysterious circumstances in a sit-in demanded justice from people responsible for such heinous crimes, highlighting systematic abuse, unjustified arrests, and perpetual harassment of local population. Abdul Rahim Dar, 80 year old heart patient of Sopor Kashmir died after the ambulance carrying him to hospital was stopped by army for continuous use of its siren. Such incidents are a daily occurrence and braving unprecedented harsh realities has made people receptive and enduring.

 

In a spate of disappearances in and outside of the State of Kashmir, yet another young man of 24, Ishtiyaq Ahmed Shah mysteriously disappeared form a hotel in Jammu, a small hilly border town of Kashmir having sizeable Hindu population. A desperate and frantic effort for the search did not yield any results and Ishtiyaq’s family helplessly have to endure pain and agony inflicted by callous perpetrators.

 

Another Kashmiri victim Amin Ganaie targeted reportedly disappeared and hasn´t been traced since November, 2013. Amin´s father in frustration said, "I have been roaming from pillar to post to trace my son but nobody from civil and police administration is cooperating or helping me. We registered a complaint at Mahindra Park police station in Delhi but Delhi police did not take the matter seriously,"


Thousands of men, women and children have disappeared as Indian army´s usual trait is to pick up on sight people of all ages including women who get consumed in torture chambers. Most of them get killed facing unbearable torture and are dispensed in unidentified graves. The women picked up are gang-raped, killed and dupmed in graves which cannot even be identified. The rape is used as a weapon to humiliate the populace brazenly and shamelessly.

 

Local or International Human Right Groups are never allowed to visit Kashmir as India´s fake secular and democratic image gets exposed and puts it into an embarrasing situation. International community must force India to allow these organizations to visit unhindered to take stock of the situation. India must not be allowed to commit these heinous crimes and atrocities with impunity.
