2,288 women martyred, 22,744 widowed, 9,984 molested in Kashmir


Srinagar, November 25 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, 2,288 women were among 93,515 civilians martyred during the last 21 years due to the unabated acts of Indian state terrorism.

According to a report released by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service, today, on the occasion of “International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women” Indian troops molested 9,984 women during the period and the state terrorism rendered 22,744 women widowed. The report maintained that Kashmiri women had been the worst affectees of the harrowing conflict since January 1989.

The report deplored that the troops had been routinely involved in sexual harassment of Kashmiri women to suppress the ongoing liberation struggle. It further pointed out that although men had been subjected to enforced disappearances, but women had been adversely affected because of being related to the disappeared persons as mothers, wives, sisters and daughters. The report said, women constitute a considerable number of mental patients, which is well over one hundred thousand, due to the violence perpetrated by the troops.
