Quit Jammu and Kashmir Campaign
• for complete demilitarization of Jammu and Kashmir.
• reiterate the call for the right to self-determination for the people of Jammu and Kashmir as was promised by Jawaharlal Nehru
Subsequently, the movement has degenerated into a cycle of violence, with continued street protests, stone pelting and police firing, and several people, mostly youth, losing their lives as a result. Due to the deaths of several teenagers during the 2010 protests, the year 2010 has been marked as the year of teenage killing in Kashmir.
Aim of the Movement
Kashmir conflict remains one of the oldest unresolved disputes in the world. India's position is that Kashmir is an integral part of India, while the people of Indian Administered Kashmir and the Pakistan's maintain that Kashmir is a disputed territory whose final status must be determined by the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Indian Forces are occupying the state unlawfully. The basic aims of movements are as under:
1. Complete Demilitarization
2. Plebiscite under UN Auspices
Suppression Of The Movement
a. Curfews, Arrests and Killings
b. Media Censorship(Print And Electronic Media, Gag On SMS Services,Crackdown On E-Protestors)
Why Are Kashmiris victimized?
a. Model Tariq Ahmad Dar's career came to an abrupt end on September 16 2006 in Bangladesh, when he was picked up on the suspicion that he was a RAW agent. Deported to India after languishing in a Dhaka jail, Tariq didn’t really win his freedom.He landed in Delhi only to be arrested again, this time by the special cell of Delhi Police for his alleged links with the Lashkar-e-Toiba.In less than two months, from being a face that dominated hoardings and commercials in Bangladesh, Tariq was accused of human trafficking, spying for India and a terror conduit across two nations.
b. Many more stories like him, A 19-year -old youth, Basharat Bashir, was all set to fly to Spain for the soccer training, but the news of denial of passport has crushed his dreams. Bashir was among the 11 players selected by International Sports Academy Trust (ISAT) for training in Spain, but was dropped at the last moment because of non availablitiy of passport. Denial of the passport because his father was a militant, Why should a son suffer due to his father? Why should he be denied the passport, and hurdles put in his way?
c. Parvez Rasool wrongly detained in banglore.
d. 8 year old sameer who was going to his uncles house was killed…His fault?
