Pakistan pays tribute to all Kashmiri women
March 8, 2020
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – On the International Women’s Day, Pakistan has paid special tribute to all the Kashmiri women who have suffered Indian atrocities. Foreign Office spokesperson Aisha Farooqui took her twitter and said that since 1989, 22,911 women have been widowed, 11,179 molested and raped while 2377 killed by Indian forces in the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK). She wrote the famous quote of Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah in which he said no nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you. Aisha Farooqui said on this day we pay tribute to Pakistani women whose hard work is contributing towards Nation's growth and development in every walk of life. As the world is observing the International Women’s Day, today, the miseries and victimization of the Kashmiri women at the hands of Indian troops and police personnel continue unabated in IoK. According to a report released by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service on the occasion of the International Women’s Day, thousands of women are among 95,507 Kashmiris, martyred by Indian military, paramilitary and police personnel since January 1989 till date. At least 671 women have been martyred by Indian troops since January 2001 till date. The report pointed out that the unabated Indian state terrorism rendered 22,912 women widowed. The Indian forces’ personnel molested 11,179 women including the victims of Kununposhpora mass rape and Shopian double-rape-and murder of 17-year-old Aasiya Jan and her sister-in-law Neelofar Jan. An eight-year girl, Aasifa Bano, of Kathua, was abducted, gang-raped and subsequently murdered by Indian police personnel, in January 2018. The report said that thousands of women lost their sons, husbands, fathers and brothers in the occupied territory who were subjected to custodial disappearance by India troops. As per the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons, more than 8,000 Kashmiris went missing in custody during the past 31 years, the report added. The report revealed that thousands of school boys and girls were also injured by the pellets fired by Indian troops while over hundred including 19-month-old Heeba Jan, 2-year-old Nusrat Jan, Ulfat Hameed (17), Insha Mushtaq, Ifrah Shakoor (17), Shakeela Bano, Tammana (11), Shabroza Mir (16), Shakeela Begum(35) and Rafia Bano (31)were blinded. The report said that near a dozen women including Hurriyat leaders, Aasiya Andrabi, Fehmeeda Sofi, Naheeda Nasreen and Insha Tariq Shah (23) were facing illegal detention inside Kashmir jails and in infamous Tihar Jail in India. They are being victimized only for representing the Kashmiri people’s righteous demand and aspirations. The report further pointed out that womenfolk are majority of the Kashmiris suffering from multiple psychic problems. The women whom these disappeared men leave behind are referred to as “half-widows,” reflecting their uncertain status between wifehood and widowhood. Many mothers are waiting for their disappeared sons while widows and half-widows are in pain since decades in occupied territory.
