Kashmir cries for justice
July 23, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
- According to Amnesty International, as of June 2015 no member of the Indian security forces has been tried in civil courts for thousands of human rights violations committed against the oppressed people of Kashmir in the past three decades. We appeal to the people of conscience to join hands to hold the Government of India accountable for its crimes against humanity.
- On July 23rd, we will gather in Houston and speak on behalf of the 12 year old girl who, last week, was stripped in front of her family. We will raise our voice on behalf of a brother and sister who were taking their ailing mother to the hospital but on the way, the Indian forces molested the sister and knocked the brother unconscious while the ailing mother’s pleas were answered by batons. We will cry on behalf of the 14 year old girl who’s dreams to become a doctor were shattered when pallets fired from the gun of an Indian soldier blinded her for the rest of her life and many hundreds like her, who have partially or permanently lost their eyesight to these lethal pallets. We will shed tears for the innocent lives that have fallen to the bullets of the Indian guns in the last 10 days and tens of thousands in the last three decades. We will speak on behalf of the parents who are in perpetual and painful grief for their missing children. We will ask for the identity of the dead in the un-marked mass graves. We will demand justice for the scores of women and minor girls of Kunan and Poshpora villages of Kashmir who were mass and gang raped on a cold night of February 1991 by the Indian Army.
On July 23rd, we will raise our voices in solidarity with countless people in and outside of Kashmir and say ‘No’ to injustice and ‘Yes’ to peace. Please stand with us. Together we will protest for Kashmir!!
