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 Kashmiris

 

 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

 

 Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front poste 'Stop Indian Massacre in Kashmir'

 

 

 

 

 JKNAP - the Jammu Kashmir National Awami Party

 

 

 

 

 

 

 'United We Stand - Divided we Fall'

 The poster shows the Kashmir Independence flag and a picture of Maqbool Bhat Shaheed

 The red flags are JKNAP flags

 

 One man takes off his shirt and protests bare-chested

 In the background are the yellow, green and white flags of Azad Kashmir

 

 

 

 'We are Not afraid of Bullets. We will fight for freedom till our last breath'

 The JKPF Plebiscite Front is a political party
