Shouting out loud against the brutalities being carried out by the Indian forces for the world to listen to that we have not forgotten about Kashmir. The Parliamentary Special Committee on Kashmir will highlight the brutalities being carried out by the Indian forces by showcasing a projection mapping on one of the most significant buildings in Pakistan, the Parliament House.
Revoking the special status of Kashmir, the BJP government abrogated Articles 35-A and 370 of the Indian constitution, taking away the right of self-determination from the Kashmiris, and dividing the state into two territories.
The number of soldiers deployed to the valley was increased to 1.1 million to carry out and implement the new orders issued by the state. This included a curfew, communications blackout, economic curtain, suppression of freedom of speech, and repression of most Kashmir freedom movement leaders through arrests, torture, and extra-judicial killings.
Ending not just there, the voices of common citizens of the valley have been silenced through arrests, torture, enforced disappearances, physical abuse, and killings.
August 5, 2020 marks the one-year of the Kashmir Siege. With children as young as 18 months old pelted, 9-year-olds and over detained, attacked, injured, and tortured. Businesses shut, normalcy in lives, and peace of the valley disrupted.
Indian Kashmiris are experiencing one of the most brutal periods of their history.
