As you all might already know that the people of (Indian administered) Kashmir have been demonstrating for a free Kashmir with rights of self-determination (and this is not a new movement at all). They don’t want to be “Indian Administered” anymore. And you might as well already know that the Indian police force have been battering the demonstrators – several have been killed, several “separatist leaders” have been jailed. Curfew has also been imposed in the valley for several days to curb any demonstrations.
Now I’m wondering! Where the fuck are the human rights organizations (along with RTI and RSF)!
The non-Tibetans and media workers that have tried to raise Tibet issue and tried to humiliate China on the face of Beijing Olympics – would they support “Free Kashmir” movement and start their media campaign?
Oh, we are talking about “Muslim” people here – not some Dalai Lama and his so called Buddhist followers. So they are the terrorists, militants and insurgents. USA? Forget it.. it won’t be interested in doing any favour to Muslim people.
Granted, there’s no human rights in China, there’s no human rights in India.. heck it’s not anywhere!
And, I really don’t care/know about the real “political” issue between India and Pakistan. I am only interested in seeing if all these AP, AFP, CNN, BBC, RTI, RSF and rights activists who blatantly legitimized the “Free Tibet” issue over Olympics, do the same for “Free Kashmir” movement.
India is not hosting any Olympic games – however, if it did, would these humanitarians and rights activists obstruct the Torch relay? Would they say – “Stop Olympics, Kashmiri are dying”? And would, some of you who burnt candles on Facebook for Free Tibet (how freaking amusing!), would you do the same for Free Kashmir?
I wish good for Kashmiri people – whatever their fate may be. I wish the same for others too.
But these so called human rights activists and so called “free media” – they just disgust me! Thukkaaa !
