After killing 460 militants & 235 civilians in 28 months (nearly 25 Kashmiris every month since about October 2015), the Indian government announced it will halt hunt to kill operations during the month of Ramzan, the month of fasting. Since the summer of 2008, Indian occupying forces have killed over 600 civilians in street protests. An army spokesperson said they “reserve the right to retaliate if attacked or if essential to protect the lives of innocent people.” That means we can expect deaths possibly to abate but not to end during Ramzan.
