Despite the mass deaths in India, the Indian government has yet to cancel the Amarnath Pilgrimage. It plans to ferry over 600,000 people from all over India into Kashmir by using over 30,000 administrative and military personnel.
Right now thousands of Kashmiris languish in prisons across the region and India. Most have been arrested without charge and without prospect of trial under draconian laws like the so called ‘Public Safety Act’ (PSA) and Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). They are effectively facing a death sentence in overcrowded, unhygienic, and poorly ventilated prisons.
