There are increasing social media posts by Kashmiris on drug trafficking to Kashmiri youth by the Indian Army. This morning Stand With Kashmir posted: “Colonial regimes make sure that intoxicants are widely available to native populations in an attempt to get people “addicted” and distract them from their political conditions. The Indian army has done this by making drugs widely available to the youth in Kashmir. Now, alcohol.”
That has analogs, including in the US extermination campaigns of Native Americans & in the US war on Black youth. It’s an extremely important issue which I hope many Kashmiris will address & inform us about.
