Kashmiri families protest torture of their loved ones in Indian jails

Family members of prisoners in Tihar jail protest in Srinagar (Rising Kashmir) Dec 3 2017

These are family members of Kashmiri prisoners sustaining torture in Tihar jail near New Delhi. They are protesting in Srinagar against the torture, demanding their loved ones be shifted to prisons in Kashmir, & calling on international human rights groups to act on behalf of Kashmiri prisoners in Indian jails.

Tihar jail claims it is an avant-garde prison facility using yoga, meditation, & spiritual practices to rehabilitate prisoners but for Kashmiris it is a torture center of the Abu Ghraib/Guantanamo kind. It probably isn’t much better for Indian prisoners.

Stop the torture. Send the prisoners home. End the occupation. Self-determination for Kashmir.
