I am always honored to receive friend requests from Kashmiris because of my immense respect for them & their freedom struggle. But if you’re mourning the death of that murderous Syrian general, I don’t want your shabby-assed grief showing up in my newsfeed. The Kashmiris I respect & can learn from are those who stand in solidarity with the Syrian revolution against the Assad dictatorship, with the Rohingya people, with Palestinians. That solidarity is one of the things that makes their struggle against occupation & colonialism so monumentally important.
