“It is funny how Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah are celebrating the return of captive Indian pilot Abhinandan because ‘they could not imagine the pain his family must have been going through’. Mehbooba, you jailed my mother. Every single day I spend without her love is on you. Omar, you prolonged the imprisonment of my father to death. You cost me the guidance of my father. And your late grandfather is why Kashmir has had over 100,000 war orphans. You turned our home into an orphanage. You know nothing about the pain. You are just power-hungry politicians who provide impunity to bloodthirsty occupational forces.”

–Ahmed Bin Qasim, Kashmir
