Commemorating the murder & rape of Asiya & Neelofar in Kashmir on May 29th 2009

It was on May 29th, 2009 that 17-year-old Asiya & her 22-year-old sister-in-law Neelofar were brutalized, raped, & murdered by Indian occupying forces in the Shopian district of Kashmir. There has been no justice for these young women nor for the estimated 10,000 other Kashmiri women raped by occupying forces in a systematic use of rape as a weapon of war.

This video by Basharat Amin is an excellent presentation on the case of Asiya & Neelofar. He has also written this article about the case:

The point of commemorating these monstrous crimes is to continue demanding justice & to highlight the use of sexual oppression in war, occupation, & genocide. Kashmiri activists are playing a leading role in this international campaign against rape & sexual torture as an instrument of war.
