Kashmiris call for freedom from India
India House, London, UK. Mon 11 Feb 2019
India has over 800,000 troops in Kashmir, who shoot to kill, torture,
rape and burn homes with impunity.
It was the 35th anniversary of the hanging by India of Maqbool Bhat
Shaheed in 1984.
Kashmiris say Jammu Kashmir was never a part of India or Pakistan
they want Freedom - Independence for Kashmir, including both Jammu
Kashmir and Azad Kashmir
Maqbool was a Kashmiri separatist and founder of the National Liberation
Front (later called theJKLF) in 1965
'Stop War Crimes in Kashmir' . Since 1988 India has killed over 100,000
One of many terrible mistakes made at the partition of India by the
British was to put Kashmir in India
The population was largely Muslim, but its ruler was Hindu and was
against joining Pakistan
