“india has lost its Kashmir plot completely. their groping in the dark policy is only worsening the sufferings of Kashmiris. more blood, blindings, wounds, incarcerations. tough and tougher times seem ahead. the most powerless will suffer. the most marginalized will suffer. all regional and international solidarities should push for demilitarization and self-determination. an unending occupation is not the way.”

–Ather Zia
