Noone likes posting pics of dead bodies @myraemacdonald. Your polemics bothers me. Instead of highlighting a dead, mutilated body, being dragged on the streets & used as a selfie trophy, you are being nothing less than a fierce megaphone for the Indian state narrative.
#Kashmir
To whitewash this colonial, racist & self proclaimed intellectual discussion, you are using non Kashmiri voices to dictate how the #Kashmir situation came about, why these, in your opinion backward, people are "fighting" & what they in really want. Like they don't have voices.
You are referring to the framework of International law (Humanitarian conventions are tightly knitted with that set of rules) and how "security forces"* are pressured to conduct abuses, and ask us all to have restraint reactions to these violations.

*Indian occupation forces
Like the problem is our reactions. Like the problem is the images shown.
Like the dead body means nothing, as long as we don't show the horror & the perpetrator.
Like the compact, brutal & unlawful violence committed by Indian occupation forces in #Kashmir is not the CORE ISSUE.
India has 700 interrogation centres spread across #Kashmir. One out of five Kashmiris have been subjected to torture. The methods used are barbaric with thousand left dead from electrocution, hanging upside down or deprived sleep until their bodies collapse. A lifelong trauma.
But you @myraemacdonald are worried that sharing ONE image of Indian brutality in #Kashmir can inflame more violence! You worry about "reactions" on such atrocities.

You should. Because It's enough. It's been enough for 7 decades & NOW it's time to expose this grave injustice.
Instead of being a megaphone for the Indian state narrative, it would help to read some indigenous people's perceptions & reports about the situation & wishes in #Kashmir. These voices are the ones we should seek our information from.

A dead body should raise questions.
This is one in depth analysis about the "New age militancy" in #Kashmir, written by a Kashmiri.

Many more are available, if we lift our eyes beyond the comfortable AC-rooms and the news we are fed to keep the occupation in status quo mode.
