This handsome young man is 28-year-old Rizwan Pandit from Awantipora in Kashmir. He was a school teacher at a private school who was arrested three days ago for questioning about a ‘militancy case.’ He died in police custody last night. People, especially the young, don’t just die from questioning. Unless there is torture involved. Such criminality is the very nature of military occupation for Kashmiris & Palestinians. His murder is a threat to all civilians & a clarion call to all human rights supporters to stand with Kashmiris against the occupation.

May this young man Rest In Peace. Keep his kind face in mind in building international opposition to the Indian occupation of Kashmir.

End the occupation. Self-determination for Kashmir.
