Black Lives Matter: Kashmir Lives Matter Too

KashmirBlack Lives Matter: Kashmir Lives Matter Too

Monitoring Desk: “As Black Lives Matter, lives of minorities and marginalized in India, anywhere in the world should matter too”.

This serious proposition comes from an article titled “Black Lives Matter” published by Kashmir Time on June 5, 2020.

   

The article says that world-wide concern is being expressed over the killing of the Black American by US cops in broad daylight and brutally and in reaction streets of America are spilling out with rage. Same is being done in Indian Occupied Kashmir and elsewhere in India but reaction of people against State-sponsored brutality is called “Terrorism”.

The protests are not just about George Floyd but about the systemic culture of harassment by state organs, legitimised with blanket impunity and political patronage.

 

The article indicates that some of the protests have turned violent and history is instructive that these protests, irrespective of their violent or non-violent nature, are public responses to conditions that become unbearable. The protests are not just about George Floyd but about the systemic culture of harassment by state organs, legitimised with blanket impunity and political patronage.

The article says that the police brutality and the culture of harassment Indians are facing has a resemblance to what happened in the United States.

Writer says that police brutality seen in the recent anti-Citizens Amendment Act (CAA) campaigns in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and other parts of the state and some of the cases of mob lynchings in which cops were found triggered reaction and aggression from people in the same way as it is happening in the United States but in India this reaction is called Terrorism.

The article indicates that it was in light of the backdrop of a continuing culture of harassment that the discriminatory CAA broke the barriers of patience and led to an outpouring of liberal and secular Indians on the streets. The protests first began in universities, where students were not only brutalized but also have been criminalized, many of them arrested.
