Kamran Yousef Feb 2018

This is a very cogent article on India’s arrest of Kashmiri photojournalist Kamran Yousef. We need to understand these frame-ups of journalists in Kashmir & elsewhere & significantly step up our defense. The arrests, forcible disappearances, extermination of journalists is a human rights issue of concern to all of us. That is highlighted by Kamran’s case, by Burma’s extermination of almost the entire network of Rohingya citizen journalists in Arakan/Rakhine state, & by the role of citizen journalists in Syria.
