KashmirIndian forces raping, abusing, harassing Kashmiri women with impunity: Mushaal
  • World community should shun duplicity to force India to stop women abuses

By Hamid Khan Wazir

ISLAMABAD: Mushaal Hussein Mullick, the Chairperson Peace and Culture Organisation, has said that on one hand women are celebrating International Women’s Day worldwide demanding gender equality while on the other, women in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) are battling for protecting their honour from the inhuman occupation forces.    


Speaking at a seminar on International Women’s Day here on Wednesday, she said that the entire world is talking about women rights, but alas, the international community and human right organizations observed criminal silence over the miseries and victimization of Kashmiri women by Indian troops, which continue unabated in the occupied valley.

Mushaal, wife of Jailed Hurriyat Leader Mohmmad Yasin Mullick, was the chief guest in the event to express solidarity with Kashmiri women’s. Ms. Sabien Hussein Mullick Sec General Peace and Culture Organisation, Ms. Humaira, Ms. Mehreen, Ms. Azra and Ms. Noor also participated

The chairperson said that violence against women, including rape, abuse and harassment became a norm in the occupied valley and the Indian brutal forces committing the crimes sans any fear of punishment because they are given a license to humiliate and harass Kashmiri women.

She said that the women across the globe are talking about gender-based discrepancies and promotion of legal, economic and social empowerment, while in the scenic valley women rape are being used as a weapon of war to silence the voices of brave Kashmiri people.

She lamented that the world celebrated women day annually but no respite in the hardship and abuse of women could be witnessed in the IIOJK, which clearly indicated that the international community and human right organizations are not serious about the right of Kashmiri women because if they forced fascist Indian government it would hurt their economic interests.

Mushaal further demanded that the world should shun the duplicity and double standard and should press the Indian government to stop the on-going brutalities and women abuses in the occupied valley.

The Chairperson said that the human right organizations should come out of the sweet slumber and raise the issue of women abuses in the occupied valley vociferously.
