The situation is Kashmir is grave. They do not differentiate between an innocent person, a human rights activist, and a militant. They kill or arrest people at will. The issue needs to be raised at international platforms. Thank you very much for taking a step in this regard.ReplyDelete
Tazeen knows her stuff! US activists should be at least equally conscious of these injustices under the occupation of Kashmir as under the occupation of Palestine. One might suggest the case for self determination, while relevant in both cases, demands greater effort from the Left at this time.ReplyDelete
