We intrude on this young mother’s grief to highlight Indian Army violence against Kashmiri civilians, including small children. Kousar Jan lost her only child, 13-year-old Basim Aijaz, on May 19th when he was burned over 90% of his body in the Indian Army & J&K police assault on Nawakadal, Srinagar. Her son was born after six years of prayer.
She suffered the supreme loss of a child whilst several other families lost their homes.
Our heartfelt condolences to Kousar & her husband. May little Basim Rest In Peace.
