According to a report by Save the Children “Stop the war on Children ” approximately 420 million children making 1 in 5 children

of the world live in Death, Injury, and Trauma.

Now more than ever, children are silently suffering from impacts of war and conflict.

Many children from Kashmir have also been left maimed for life; hundreds have been left blinded after being hit by pellet shotguns.

The six grave violations against children in armed conflict, identified by UN Security Council include

1. Killing and maiming of children
2. Sexual Violence
3. Abduction
4. Attacks on schools and hospitals
5. Denial of humanitarian access.

but is not sure if he can see properly again).

It is important to understand that these violations are also happening in Indian occupied Kashmir and are increasing day by day.

In the report “ Terrorized: Impact of Violence on the Children of Indian Occupied Jammun & Kashmir ” it was reported that children are vulnerable and so as a way of terrorizing and gaining control, they may be deliberately targeted.

To induce fear and compliance,
they are raped, kidnapped and tortured.
In IOK deaths, disability and disfigurement due to injuries caused by pellet gun, use of tear gas, bullets and shelling as well as drowning, inhaling shell fumes are common

in international and national media.

It has been the hardest year of suffering, trauma, fear, uncertainty and wrath of occupation forces for the Kashmiri people in general and for the women in particular since they laid siege of IOK.

Women and children continued to face daily trauma in the face of several hundred thousand Indian soldiers deployed in the Valley.

Abduction of young boys and men by the Indian agencies was on the rise in IOK.

Kashmiri women can’t leave their homes without a male companion out of fear they’ll be harassed by soldiers.

Indian occupational forces and Indian agencies had captured and disappeared more than 10,000 Kashmiri youth and children in the IOK since 1990

and it had become a never-ending practice during the last year since August 5.

World has seen the Nazi Ideology with new face of Modi. Those who are silent on the Muslims massacre need to wake up.
