SRINAGAR: Stating that rape is being used as a war weapon by the Indian Army to punish Kashmiris for their demand of right to self-determination, noted human rights activists and anthropologist Dr Anjana Chatterjee said, “7000 Kashmiri women have been gang raped in homes, streets and camps by Indian troops.” She was speaking at a seminar ‘Experience of Detainees’ organised by Peoples Rights Movement (PRM). Quoting a Human Rights Watch report, Kolkatta based activist, Chatterjee said that 63 interrogation centres are located In Kashmir, 26 of which fall in Srinagar district with 19 centres in Srinagar city alone.“

There been more than 75 thousands deaths in Kashmir and over 8 thousand cases of disappearances which shows that there is a continuous genocide of Kashmiris,” she said.
Chatterjee said she would raise the issue in international forums and demand commissioning of an international committee “to look into the levels and number of tortures committed by Indian troops in Kashmir.”

Speaking on the occasion noted civil society activist, Gautam Naulakha said he is ashamed of being an Indian and feels “disgraced to belong to a nation which is committing war crimes on Kashmiris for their demand of right to self determination.” He said, “It is believed that more than more than 60,000 Kashmiris have been tortured in prisons and interrogation centres by Indian Army and the levels of torture committed on Kashmiris have no match in the entire world.”

Naulakha said that there is a need to document these tortures and file them in the court on test bases to see the outcome of the judiciary, adding the documentation will internationalize the issue of tortures which have not been reported over the last 18 years.

Veteran journalist and human rights activist, Zahir-ud-din blamed ICRS and Amnesty International for “their failure to highlight the issue of human Rights violation in the state of Jammu Kashmir.”Amnesty international is Indianised and so has ICRS,” he said.
The organisations have failed to deliver in the state of Jammu Kashmir and the reason for that is that these European based organisations cannot annoy India which is turning out to be a huge market for them,” said Zahir-ud-din.

Noted lawyer and human rights activist, Parvez Imroz said, “There is a need to expose Indian government at international level for their war crimes in Kashmir and the only way to do that is to document these tortures and extra judicial killings.”-SANA

  1. First of all, We should eradicate slavery (Islam).Islam is against Humanity.After removing this Islam. Military is not essential.All problem will be solved.

  2. The suffering of common people is unfortunate. However, the way muslim zealots have treated the Kashmiri Pandits the outcome was expected. They are reaping the seeds of destruction which they had sown in the past.

  3. 8th december ko jo yeh veiw likha woh nahee samjghta.. .. usay samjhnay ki zarorrat hai

    If you think Islam is slavery and against humanity, try and do some research on how women are treated in hinduism, especially after they become widows… you’ll know what is slavery and who is really against humanity. I’ve just watched an independent documentary on women in india and hinduism. It is truly pathetic. As for Kashmir, the issue is not whether Islam is removed or the military is removed. The issue is your hindu army that is raping women. Show some common sense if you can’t show any decency and compassion for the oppressed.

  5. Yeah right Mr. Mehndi,

    Your Quran says 1 guy can marry 4 women and polygamy is legal in every Islamic country. But still you feel Islam treats its women fairly.

    About this article, its so untrue. I dont know where they get their facts from. I am a Kashmiri Muslim and nothing of this sort happens here.

    Mr. Noulakha and Ms. Chatterjee can speak so openly only because they are Indians, had they been in Pakistan/Bangladesh/any Islamic country, they would have been killed already. Do I have to mention Taslima Nasreen, Salman Rushdie etc.?

  6. DEATH TO INDIAN KASHMIR!!!!!!!!!!!
    HINDUS THROUGH WIDOWS ON FUNERAL PYRES
    i HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH MUSLIMS AND SIHKS ONLY HINDUS ARE EXTREMIST IN INDIA. AND IF WE DONT STOP CRIMES AGAINST MUSLIMS THE MUSLIMS WILL INVADE WHEN THEYRE MAHDI COMES.
