On August 5, 2019, against the will of the Kashmiri people, the Indian government made a decision to abrogate Article 370 of the Indian Constitution and bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir in to two Union territories to fully erode Kashmir’s political, economic, and judicial autonomy.
To prepare for this draconian measure, an additional 35,000 Indian security forces were sent to occupy Kashmir (already occupied by over 700,000 Indian forces) and restrict the movement of people and goods. Tourists were forced to leave against their will. Internet, mobile, and landline communications remain banned in Kashmir by the “world’s largest democracy” to suppress the voices and actions of the people.
We need to act NOW to reject and resist this underhanded takeover by the Indian government. Kashmiris deserve to live without fear and determine their own future.
Stand on the side of justice and join us.
