Kashmiri kids playing ‘frisk’, a game they invented after seeing the Indian army regularly stop civilians & submit them to this humiliating procedure. Frisking is routine practice under war & military occupation. It was done in Northern Ireland under British military occupation, Iraq under US occupation, is done selectively by Israel to those entering the country & to Palestinians under Israeli occupation, & of course elsewhere. It is an intrusive procedure & a violation of human rights. In Northern Ireland & Iraq, it was an issue that male soldiers would frisk the bodies of women civilians.
Stand with Kashmiris in demanding India end the occupation & self-determination for Kashmir.
