The scary thing about this article is that it reports 800 political leaders & activists in Kashmir have been arrested. India still does not name who they are or where they have been imprisoned. It’s likely far more have been arrested. The political prisoners we’re concerned about do not include Mufti, Abdullah, or Faesal who are collaborators acting out a drama to emerge as champions of #azaadi. We’re concerned about Parveena Ahangar, Parvez Imroz, Khurram Parvez, investigators from JKCCS, activists from the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons, journalists, well-known bloggers & commentators on social media, political cartoonists, working class stone pelters, feminists who exposed Kunan Poshpora.
Demanding the release of all Kashmiri political prisoners must be a central demand of our campaigns.
