Islamabad (PID) 23 February 2023
The Prime Minister of the Free State of Jammu and Kashmir, Sardar Tanveer Ilyas, has said that the incident of Kannan Pushpura is a symbol of India’s cruelty and brutality. The silence of the international community on this incident is a moment of concern for us. Kashmiris celebrate this incident as Kashmir Women’s Resistance Day. Kashmiri women are suffering from the worst violations of human rights by the occupying Indian soldiers and police personnel. This is not a single incident of oppression and oppression of Kashmiris by India, but such incidents are happening in the occupied valley every day, which are shocking to humanity. Sardar Tanveer Ilyas Khan said that our new generation hardly knows about this incident, it is today. Exactly 32 years ago, there is a painful tragedy on 23 February 1991, Kanan Poshpura incident has a bitter memory that can never be distorted in the history of Kashmir. Kanan Poshpura are the names of two twin villages in Kashmir. These two villages are located in Kupwara district, about 90 kilometers north of Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir. The Prime Minister said that on the cold and dark night of February 23, 1991, when the waters in Kashmir were freezing and turned into snow, 4 Rajputana Rifles and a company of 68 Mountain Brigade from Trihgam Army Camp encircled Kanan Pooshpura. Went out to get it. First, he informed an Assistant Sub-Inspector of Police, Mohammad Sultan, who sent two police constables, Abdul Ghani and Bashir Ahmed, to accompany him to the village. The army reached Kannan Poshpura at 11 pm and surrounded the two villages and announced from the mosques that all the men should come out of their houses. Women were left alone at home. One by one, the men were physically tortured and killed, and those with few remains were tied to trees. Then the drunken Indian beasts entered the houses and made more than 100 women from 8-year-old girls to 80-year-olds a collective disgrace. No one knew about this terrible tragedy. Because thirty-two years ago, these media resources were not available, women victims of violence did not have a ray of hope to take their complaints to, the local police was not ready to cooperate, it was apparently difficult to convey the voice to the world, the courts and investigative institutions were not independent. Finally, Kashmir. Five students of Isar Batul, Afrabat, Samrina Mushtaq, Manza Rashid, and Natasha Rather. By writing a book called “Kya Aap Kanan Poshpura Yada Hai”, he made the world aware of the cruelty and brutality of Cross, exposed Indian brutality and brutality, and attracted international human rights organizations to see what is happening in Indian Occupied Kashmir. He said that this book comes out in 2016. This book, published by International Development Research Center Canada, brought worldwide fame and exposed the ugly face of Indian Army. This book actually talks about the justice that these women did not get even after 25 years. This book shows how these uniformed soldiers commit sexual violence against women not only in Kashmir but in other places. And then how they escape punishment. This 228-page book is about cruelty and oppression. She tells the story. Which these five girls have researched from small to big incidents and penned down. This book is the sad story of that terrible night which still haunts us today. This book is actually the story of these oppressed women who are still waiting for justice after almost twenty five years. They said that this book of these girls actually presents the picture of oppression which is kept under the veil. Kanan Poshpura. The book presents the brutality of the army like no other. It presents the ugly face of the army, which everyone hates to see. This book actually talks about justice, which is a pillar of democracy, this book is actually a memory that the Kashmiri nation can never forget, this book is an Indian book. There are FIRs against the occupation which cannot be terminated under any circumstances. It is mentioned in the book that Abdul Ghani Constable who was an eye witness of the entire incident and also a resident of the village was brutally killed by the Indian Army in 1993. His crime was this. That he had lifted a child from the snow, whom the soldiers had snatched from the mother’s arms and thrown out of the house into the snow to quench the fire of lust. These brave women of Kashmir have not only written a book but have knocked on every door to bring the criminals to justice. Filed a writ. After that, the army used big tactics, even blasting in Kannan and Pushpora so that these people would withdraw the case out of fear, but it did not happen. After a long and difficult process, in 2014, the Kashmir High Court acquitted the victims. Orders were issued to give compensation to But it was not implemented, later this decision was challenged in the Supreme Court, where the case is still pending. He said that such a collective disgrace has never been witnessed in the world. Kanan, Poshpura’s social life today. Also affected and embarrassed. The people there have not come out of the grip of this Ra from that day till today. This incident has been called mass rape. Kashmiris have been observing this incident as Kashmir Women’s Resistance Day since February 23, 2013. Kashmiri women have been subjected to the worst human rights violations by the occupying Indian soldiers and police personnel. Under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Universal Bill of Rights for Women (CEDAW) passed by the United Nations General Assembly, women have basic rights and freedom in every sphere of social, political and life, while the situation in Kashmir is completely opposite. Due to Indian military domination and state terrorism, women are deprived of basic human rights. He said that if the Kashmir conflict has taken the lives of thousands of Kashmiris, countless women have also lost their dignity. In the late 1980s, a new chapter of human rights violations began, which continues until now, and during this time, more than a thousand women have been martyred. From 1989 to 2022, 12 thousand 121 Kashmiri women have been brutalized and raped by Indian forces, 23 thousand 234 have become widows and thousands of women are living as semi-widows whose husbands have disappeared and So far, no information about them has been found. Women in Kashmir are raped and threatened by the occupying Indian security personnel. The pattern of rape in the Occupied Valley is that when soldiers enter civilian residences, they kill or evict the men before raping the women. Many cases go unreported due to fear of repression, reprisals and stigmatization by the Indian government. Moreover, the black laws implemented by the Indian government in Occupied Kashmir provide protection to the crimes of the occupying forces and this has further increased the pain and suffering of Kashmiris. The killing of an Indian army officer is not an individual crime but is used as a tactic of state terrorism to crush the freedom movement of Kashmiris. Their husbands, brothers and sons are brutally murdered in front of their eyes. Similarly, men are forced to rape their women in front of them. It is a psychological trauma through which Kashmiri men and women are subjected to severe torture. At the 52nd United Nations Commission on Human Rights, Professor William Baker testified that rape in Kashmir was simply a case of undocumented soldiers. It is not a matter of isolated incidents, but the occupying security forces are using rape as a weapon on the Kashmiri population in a terrifying and active manner. The number of mental stress related patients in 1990 was 10% among the women of Occupied Kashmir, which is now 60-70%. has reached, as a result of which 70 out of every 100 women have become psychiatric patients. He said that widows are also carrying the burden of their slain husbands, in the presence of more than eight lakh Indian army for them and their own. It is impossible for children to earn employment. For the last seven decades, Kashmiri women have been making sacrifices for peace and fundamental rights in their homeland. Despite persecution, crackdown, fake encounters, disappearances, atrocities and killings, Kashmiri women are standing with firm determination.
