This photo is one of my Facebook friends who was shot with pellets several weeks ago while visiting his family in Kashmir. Consider the state of healthcare under India’s siege & blockade so that those now pummeled with lead pellets are unable to get treated at hospital or are fearful of going for treatment lest they be arrested as ‘miscreants’ or stone pelters. Many victims are working class kids whose pellet injuries require specialized medical care & are unable to afford it.

Demand India immediately stop the use of pellet guns in Kashmir.
