These two young Kashmiri women are being arrested for protesting to demand justice for Asifa. Hundreds of students protesting for Asifa across Kashmir have faced tear gas & pellet gun attacks. Three were admitted to hospital with pellet injuries to their eyes. What Indian authorities have every reason to worry about is that the political campaign in defense of Asifa will broaden to international campaigns against sexual violence under occupation, like the mass rape & torture at Kunan Poshpora in 1991, & an exposure of sexual violence as part of caste oppression. This is #MeToo writ large.
