Kashmir: U.S Remained Silent on the Human Rights Violations in Indian occupied Kashmir. As the death toll rises to 42 in Indian-accoupied Kashmir following a bloody crackdown on mourners and protesters this weekend, Kashmiris are lamenting the lack of international condemnation for the violence meted out to them.
By Thurday, authorities recorded at least 42 deaths and 500 people injured after police and paramilitary troops opened fire on tens of thousands of Kashmiris who took to the streets to pay homage to the rebel leader Burhan Wani, who was killed on Friday. His death had prompted a mass funeral and demonstrations against Indian rule.
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Imam of Srinagar's Jamia mosque and leader of a faction of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, told Al Jazeera that the lack of condemnation from both India and international actors, proved that "Kashmiri lives did not matter".
"No political party or institution has condemned the violence because they don't feel the need ... they are so disconnected from this place," Farook said from his home in Srinagar, where he has been under house arrest since Friday.. Tags: #Anti-Muslim #Kashmir-Muslims #
