Kashmir: Indian Army accused of torture - BBC News

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
A BBC investigation has uncovered allegations of brutal beatings and torture by soldiers in Indian-administered Kashmir.

The Indian government withdrew the region's semi-autonomous status in early August. There's since been a clampdown on dissent and thousands of arrests, and it's being seen by some as a drive by the Hindu nationalist government for more control over India's only Muslim majority state. The Indian Army has described the allegations as baseless.

BBC News at Ten’s Sameer Hashmi has been inside Kashmir and sent this report, which some people may find distressing.

people are roaming freely in this video, but BBC alleges they are locked down.😂😂😂

The ppl interviewed in this video, let the world know their identities, just go to their backyard and you'll realise there are no guns with them and they have never been trained by Jaish e mohammed, Jamat ud dawa, just to name a few.

radical islam (jihad) is useless and unproductive, if their cause had really been rational, they would have moved towards PROGRESS AND DEVELOPMENT, INSTEAD OF INVOLVING THEMSELVES IN FOOLISH STONE PELTING, KILLING KASHMIRI PUNDITS AND SIKHS LIVING THERE.

Actually under this law, only the persecuted minorities from the neighbouring countries of India will be given relief. Unfortunately these neighbouring countries have a Muslim majority due to which Muslims cannot enjoy the benefit of this law. But the Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, etc. fleeing slaughter in these countries are relieved by this new law. Hence stop misleading the crowd and spread awareness about the violent slaughter of the religious minorities in these countries.
If you have the guts, please also interview those whose lives have been saved and changed in a positive way by this citizenship law...

US Senator Chris Van Hollen has been denied permission to visit Occupied Jammu and Kashmir during his trip to India as Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government’s clampdown in the Muslim-majority region enters its third month.

According to the Washington Post,  Van Hollen, a Democrat senator who represents Maryland, said he had asked to go to IOK so he could see the reality on the ground for himself, but denied permission.

“If the Indian government has nothing to hide, they should not worry about people visiting Kashmir and witnessing the situation with their own eyes, ” he said in an interview in New Delhi on Friday.

Van Hollen is one of nearly 50 members of bipartisan group of US senators who have urged President Donald Trump to immediately intervene and pursue Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to lift curfew and end communication blocka
