“India asks us, ‘Why do you throw stones?’ No one asks, ‘Who burned your house down?'”
Said by a Kashmiri youth, tortured in Indian detention–but could just as well have been said by a Palestinian youth.
Affinities between the struggles in Kashmir & Palestine are more than just the barbaric methods of repression & occupation used by India & Israel. Over both struggles is the pall & legacy of British colonialism. International solidarity is imperative to lay that legacy to rest.
