Women worst victim of Indian state terrorism in IIOJK

22,973 women widowed, 11,263 molested since January 1989

#AgoniesOfWomenInIIOJK

Islamabad, March 08 (KMS): As the world is observing the International Women’s Day, today, miseries and victimization of the Kashmiri women at the hands of Indian troops, police and agencies continue unabated in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

According to a report released by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service on the occasion of the World Women’s Day, thousands of women are among 96,290 people of IIOJK, who have been martyred by the Indian forces’ personnel since January 1989 till date. At least, 685 women have been martyred by the troops since January 2001.

The report pointed out that the unabated Indian state terrorism rendered 22,973 women widowed. The occupation forces’ personnel molested/disgraced 11,263 women. It said that Kunanposhpora mass rape and Shopian double-rape-and murder of 17-year-old Aasiya Jan and her sister-in-law Neelofar Jan as well as gang-rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl, Aasifa Bano, of Kathua are glaring examples of Indian troops brutalities against women in IIOJK.

The report said that thousands of women lost their sons, husbands, fathers and brothers in the occupied territory who were subjected to custodial disappearance by the Indian troops. As per the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons, more than 8,000 Kashmiris went missing in custody during the past 35 years, it added.

The report revealed that thousands of school boys and girls were also injured by the pellets fired by Indian troops and police personnel while over a hundred including 19-month-old Heeba Jan, 2-year-old Nusrat Jan, Ulfat Hameed (17), Insha Mushtaq, Ifrah Shakoor (17), Shakeela Bano, Tammana (11), Shabroza Mir (16), Shakeela Begum (35) and Rafia Bano (31) lost their eyesight due to pellet injuries.

Four-year-old Zuhra Majeed was hit by pellets in her legs and abdomen after her family was targeted by Indian police outside their home in Qamarwari in Srinagar on July 10, 2016. A 17-year-old Ulfat Hameed, a Class 10 student from Baramulla said, “I used to teach sewing and tailoring to girls in my village, but not anymore. Because of the injuries, I could not write my class 10 board exam”.

As per the report, a police constable and Special Police Officer (SPO) in July 2021 gang raped a minor Dalit girl in Dansal area of Jammu.

The report said that the world community must wake up to stop sexual violence being perpetrated by Indian troops in IIOJK.

The report said that over three dozen women including Hurriyat leaders and activists like Aasiya Andrabi, Fehmeeda Sofi, Naheeda Nasreen, Insha Tariq Shah, Saima Akther, Shazia Akhter, Afrooza, Aisha Mustaq, Hina Bashir Beig, Nusrat Jan, Shabroza Bano and Aasiya Bano were facing illegal detention in the jails of IIOJK and New Delhi’s infamous Tihar Jail. They are being victimized only for representing the righteous demand of right to self-determination and aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

The report further pointed out that womenfolk are among the majority of the Kashmiris suffering from multiple psychic problems. The women who lost their men due to enforced disappearances are referred to as “half-widows,” because of their uncertain status between wifehood and widowhood.

Many mothers died after waiting for their disappeared sons while widows and half-widows are in pain since decades in the occupied territory.

From Azad Jammu and Kashmir, around 400 women who married Kashmiri youth are facing injustice in the occupied territory as the Indian government is neither giving them citizenship rights, nor travel documents to go back to AJK. Their children are denied admissions in government schools. “I came here in 2012. My mother died recently but I could not go to see her one last time. We can’t meet our relatives and family members. Parents of many women died during these years but they could not attend the funeral,” said Saba Fayaz who belongs to AJK and married a youth from IIOJK.

Women in Kashmir don’t enjoy the basic rights which are given under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and even promised under CEDAW (The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women) adopted in 1979 by the United Nations General Assembly described as an international bill of rights for women.

The report said Kashmiri women stand like a rock today facing the worst sort of political and social pressures like the wife of illegally detained Hurriyat leader Ayaz Akbar, Rafiqa Begum, who died due to cancer in Maloora, Shalteing in Srinagar in 2021. Ayaz Akbar is facing illegal detention in Tihar Jail since July 2017 on false charges.

Another victim, Maroofa Meraaj, wife of illegally detained Hurriyat leader Raja Meraaj-ud-Din Kalwal having four daughters said, “I am suffering from depression and so are my daughters who have not seen their father since long.” Her mother-in-law and mother of the jailed Hurriyat leader, Raja Meraaj-ud-Din Kalwal also died due to depression last year.

“Our life has turned into hell. In his absence, things have become too difficult. Our relatives do help us. But it can’t go a long way. We have no one to look after us,” Maroofa said, adding her husband has been kept in jail just for his political views.

The families of illegally detained APHC leaders and activists, who are lodged in different jails, are waiting their son’s and husband’s release.

Dozens of mothers including mother of martyred Athar Mushtaq Wani whose sons were martyred by Indian troops in fake encounters and extra judicial killings in Srinagar in December 202in IIOJK are demanding justice and return of the bodies of their loved ones who were forcibly buried by the troops in unmarked graves in Ganderbal, Kupwara and Baramulla districts, far away from their native areas, after 2019. Hundreds of such mothers are facing atrocities, injustice and depression.

There are hundreds of mothers, wives and daughters who are waiting the return of their dear ones including APHC Chairman, Masarrat Alam Butt, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Dr Hameed Fayaz, Bilal Siddiqi, Maulvi Bashir Irfani, Zafar Akbar Butt, Engineer Rashid, human rights defender Khurram Parviaz, and other activists and youth languishing in different jails of IIOJK and India for last several years.

Meanwhile, APHC leaders, Yasmeen Raja, Farida Bahenji, Ms Hafza Bano, Khawaja Firdous, Syed Bashir Andrabi and Muhammad Shafi Lone have said the women across the world are observing International Women’s Day but the oppressed women of IIOK have nothing to commemorate. They urged the instruments of international justice and watchdogs like UN as well as the international community to intervene and take cognizance of the sufferings of the Kashmiri women. They said the Kashmiri women are taking a leading role in the ongoing freedom struggle and called upon the world community to force India to protect the women’s rights in IIOJK.

The spokesman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Rafiq Dar, in a statement in Srinagar that women in occupied Jammu and K are the most oppressed section of the society at the hands of Indian forces.

Kashmiri leader and Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Salvation Movement Altaf Ahmed Butt in a statement in Islamabad said that women around the world observe their strides towards equality, the women of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir remain among the most marginalized and oppressed.
