Kashmir: 13-Year Old Ifrah Jan Was Shot In The Face By ‘Israeli’-Trained, ‘Israeli’-Armed Indian Forces

by Jonathan Azaziah

This 13-year old girl is Ifrah Jan. No, she isn’t Yemeni or Syrian. She is Kashmiri. And for no reason other than the fact she protested against the criminal occupation of her land, she was shot in the face with lead-based pellets by the brutal Indian army. Since July when First-Intifada-style protests returned to the Vale in daily form, there have been more than 12,000, not tens or hundreds, but more than 12,000 Kashmiris, mainly youths under 18–young men and women, with the youngest being a 1-year old baby–wounded by the Hindutvadi occupiers. Of those 12,000 some odd civilians, at least 1,631 of them have been blasted at point-blank range with these weapons. And OF THOSE, over 1,100 Kashmiris have some kind of devastating damage to their eyes.

At 69 Brutal, Bloody Years Old Today, India’s Occupation Of Kashmir Must End And End Now

by Jonathan Azaziah

Today is a solemn day and a day of reflection. And simultaneously albeit conversely, today is also a day of rage. Because today is Black Day, that time of year when the people of occupied Kashmir and those with Mouqawamah Consciousness in the Kashmiri Diaspora mark the starting point of the occupation of their ancestral lands by the murderous Indian regime. In 2016, the oppression of the Kashmiri people now enters its 69th year. The agony of this crime against humanity–the least talked about crime against humanity on the face of the planet at that–is not only festering like the pus of an open wound in the hearts of Sunnis, Shi’a and Sufis, but Sikhs, Christians and Pandits (Kashmiri Hindus) too.

Ugliest Crime Yet Of Indian Army’s Crackdown On Kashmiris: 90 Women Raped In 39 Days

by Jonathan Azaziah

F*** Narendra Modi. F*** the Indian regime. And f*** the Indian occupation army. Since the latest crackdown against the Kashmiri people started on July 9th, AT LEAST 90 women have been raped by New Delhi’s thuggish military. You read that right. AT LEAST 90 women In 39 days. This abominable inhumanity comes in addition to the 80 Kashmiris martyred, the hundreds tortured, the thousands wounded and the thousands more illegally detained under the PSA (Public Safety Act), Section 144 and other Zionist-Orwellian laws. It’s also part and parcel of a policy that the Hindutvadi occupiers have been implementing against the women of Kashmir since 1989. And during these past 27 years, a staggering 10,283 Kashmiri women have been raped by these animals. This is just what’s on file. It’s painful to think how many acts of sexual violence committed by Indian soldiers have actually gone unreported in the Vale.
