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.
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.

1) Do you know that Srinagar area in Jammu and Kashmir has some really beautiful, scenic and ancient Hindu temples? Here is a thread about some must-visit temples, that we visited.
#Kashmir Temple 1: The beautiful Durga Nag temple is in the heart of Srinagar city, within walking distance from the Z-security mansions of big name politicians in Rainawari. It is very safe to visit this temple and we did even when there was tension in other parts of Kashmir.
#Kashmir Temple 1: I never even dreamt that we would be getting a chance to participate in a Vedic Havan in Srinagar and specifically putting purnahuti to agni!

Durga Nag temple is a good place for local Hindus to visit with their children and participate in puja regularly.

The more I look at #Kathua case, the more bizarre it gets. It seems less about #JusticeforAsifa but a narrative being spun by puppet-masters.
Let the facts come. Let's ask—
1. Why did this 3-month old murder case suddenly become news. Why was it not news when the murder happened?
Why was a police officer from #Kashmir with a highly dubious history of murder-rape based on Islamist leanings, assigned to this case in #Jammu?
Q 3.
Were certain people being framed to create a narrative in this case. Was a poor dead girl being used to push agendas?
