“Of the hundreds of reasons one can be arrested simply for being a Kashmiri, add one more: anyone publicly opposing ISIS in Kashmir. Yes you heard it right, it just happened, a senior Jamaat activist was arrested today for this “crime”. We were always aware who will benefit if this deadly cult takes root in Kashmir. With this action today the Indian state delivered a manifest proof of how desperately they want the war imposed on Kashmir to become more deadly and catastrophic. Like every counter-revolutionary ploy and tactic this too will fail, and hopefully without any devastating cost for us.”
