“Yesterday, the J&K UT government approved prosecution of my mother and her two associates, under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act. She would now be sentenced to life imprisonment for raising “anti-national” slogans, creating disaffection towards India and encouraging the boycott of Indian elections. After seeing my father in jail for all my life, they’ve taken my mother as well. One feels dejected, but do they not know that the resistance shall live, even if we die?”

–Kashmiri Ahmed Bin Qasim whose mother & father are both Indian political prisoners
