“When my father completed his 21 years in prison, it was Mr. Omar Abdullah who was the Chief Minister at the time. He was asked about my father’s prolonged unlawful detention. “I want to see him die in the prison.” He said. People like him are not mere accomplices in oppression, they have been the oppressors. My father may die in prison, but at least his progeny won’t be guilt ridden because of his choices. I look up to him. He’s my hero.”

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