Indian media is reporting that the army officer who tied a young Kashmiri man named Farooq Ahmed Dar to a jeep as a human shield & paraded him through nine villages has received a commendation from the army for counter-insurgency operations.

Obviously the Indian army believes it is above international law for committing human rights crimes. But it is not above international condemnation from men & women of good will.

Active solidarity with Kashmiris is imperative: End the occupation. Self-determination for Kashmir.
