It is time for all conscious voices to raise their voice and use their good offices to prevent this large scale genocide and pressurize India to solve Kashmir according to wishes and aspirations of masses.
Advocate Babar Jan Qadri
In past fortnight more than dozen peaceful teenager protestors have fallen to the bullets of security forces. These events are just the small photocopy of the continuous genocide perpetrated by Indian forces on masses of Kashmir for fighting to gain their birth right i.e. Right to Self Determination right to self determination not only promised by United Nations but by India also six decades ago. But, when India used every deceptive measure to keep the nation of Kashmir suppressed and occupied ,the Kashmiri nation started a fervent struggle against Indian Occupation in 1989.India used all the might to suppress the masses of Kashmir. In the past two decades more than one lac Kashmiris have been killed and ten thousand women raped by Indian force to curb the logical movement of masses. As we know that genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group.
While a precise definition varies among genocide scholars, a legal definition is found in the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG). Article 2 of this convention defines genocide as “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group. These realities and definitions aptly state that genocide is going on in the Valley of Kashmir for the past two decades. The killing of twelve teenagers in the past fortnight shows that genocide is being accelerated in Kashmir by the authorities. The deep slumber shown by world bodies on this genocide can have disastrous consequences on entire humanity. it is time for all conscious voices to raise their voice and use their good offices to prevent this large scale genocide .and pressurize India to solve Kashmir according to wishes and aspirations of masses.
