Rollie Mukherjee is back.
Just so we’re clear, it had nothing to do with FB verifying her age but only with her outspoken opposition to the Indian occupation of Kashmir & support for Kashmiri self-determination.
Indian nationalists found her powerful art depicting the occupation & particularly solidarity with women to be threatening to their portrayal of Kashmiris as “jihadis” and terrorists. It is all that. That’s one reason we honor her.
Please welcome her back warmly.
