Thousands of Mothers waiting for their sons in occupied Kashmir
In Occupied Kashmir, thousands of Kashmiri women continue to wait for the return of their sons killed in fake encounters or subjected to disappearance in custody by Indian troops over the past 28 years.
According to a report released on Mother’s Day, today, the continued Indian state terrorism has resulted in the death of over 94,600 Kashmiris including children since 1989. It pointed out that the troops had subjected over 8,000 Kashmiris to custodial disappearance during the period and the mothers of majority of these disappeared people had been waiting for their return.
Meanwhile, normal life remained crippled in Shopian on the fourth consecutive day, today, due to complete shutdown against the disappearance of a local youth, Zubair Ahmad Turrey, in police custody. All shops and other business establishments remained closed while traffic was off the road in the town and adjoining areas.
