Women Abuse & Oppression in Occupied Kashmir by Indian Security forces

Published

on

August 5 was celebrated all over the world, including Pakistan, as ‘Youm-e-Estehsaal’ (A day of Exploitation). On the same day last year, India declared the annexation of the disputed territory of Occupied Kashmir in violation of international law. In the last six weeks, India has been issuing domicile certificates to 25,000 Indian nationals in the region and trying to convert the Muslim population into a minority.

The main reason for this attitude was the slogan of repealing two important points of the Indian Constitution, Articles 370 and 35A, after Narendra Modi came to power during his election campaign in 2014. Both these articles have in the past maintained the special status of Occupied Kashmir. Since their abolition, resettlement, property, permanent residence, education, and employment of Hindus have been made possible in Kashmir. This is not only a violation of UN Security Council Resolutions 47, 51, 80, 96, 98, 122, and 126, but also a violation of the rights of Kashmiris. In this situation, not only Kashmiri men but also women and children have been forced to endure three generations of persecution.

Although there are many types of war crimes, the worst is gender-based violence against women. According to a report by the Kashmir Media Service, at least 671 Kashmiri women have been martyred by Indian troops since January 2001. History has shown that whenever a state of emergency arises in a country, either in the form of an epidemic or a war, women and children are most affected.

In a war situation, women’s problems increase slightly. The first issue is migration because women spend more time at home, they also have to endure more physical and mental suffering than men when they have to migrate. The second problem is that they are used as weapons during war. Because they are physically weaker than men, they easily fall prey to the nefarious intentions of the enemy. As is happening with Kashmiri women in the case of Indian terrorism. This is indicated by both Human Rights Watch’s 1993 and 1996 reports.

Agreeing with this, Seema Kazi, a well-known author on the oppression of Kashmiri women, says, “Rape in Kashmir is a cultural weapon of war, a failed attempt by Indian security forces to stop Kashmiri men from fighting for freedom. Documents from the soldiers’ confessions state that they are routinely ordered to rape Kashmiri women.”

An example of this is the rape and murder of an 8-year-old Muslim girl (from a poor family) in January 2018. Seven Hindus (including four policemen and a temple priest) were involved. Protests against the arrest of the accused were led by two ministers of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Eventually, all the accused were released. The UN Secretary-General also took note of this heinous crime. The incident is known as the “Kathua Rape Case”.

The international attention to this incident shows that although the development of technology has exposed the oppression of the Kashmiri people, including women, globally through the media, but the abuse has not been rectified. The main reason for this is that the powerful countries in the world are not only violating human rights themselves but are also busy suppressing the voice of international justice institutions. This has made the situation worse. An example of this is the threat to the United Nations Court of Justice over the investigation of war crimes against US forces in Afghanistan.

When countries do not take action or punish their own atrocities, but also stop international institutions, the situation worsens, as is happening in Kashmir. The main reason is the Special Powers Act of 1990. Section 7 of the act prohibits the initiation of legal action against security officials without the prior approval of the Government of India. Under the Act, Indian forces are not responsible for their violent actions.

The ‘state patronage’ of violence is in fact a violation of human rights in Kashmir. That is why in the last 30 years, despite numerous reports of violence and killings through the media, not a single Indian officer has ever appeared in court or been convicted. Although the national and international media are constantly drawing attention to this, the Indian government’s oppression continues due to a lack of international pressure. India tried to adopt the same attitude with other neighboring countries, but here it was deceived and in a clash with China, it lost its temper and lost its gig. By now, India must realize that cruelty cannot go everywhere.

In this regard, although Pakistan is constantly raising its voice for the rights of Kashmiris in other international justice institutions, the international powers must also take positive steps for this serious violation of fundamental rights beyond their personal interests. Otherwise, history will also blame these countries in this oppression.

Will Pakistan Recognize and Accept Israel?

Published

on

The Muslim world is at a new turning point in history. The distance between Arabia and Israel seems to be closing. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince have met. The US Secretary of State was also present at the meeting in Saudi Arabia. The world media is shouting at this meeting. If this news is true then it is a great development in world politics. The UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan have already joined Israel. What color will this friendship with Israel bring to the Arabs? Why are the Arab countries so anxious to embrace yesterday’s enemy? Will Pak-Israel anger last forever?

While the new global political development is a source of joy for the minority, it is also a source of unhappiness for the majority. Questions about recent developments also need to be answered. Experts say the meeting took place and that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu arrived in a private jet with the Mossad chief. He met secretly with the Saudi Crown Prince. The problem is that the results of the recent US election have upset many countries, including Saudi Arabia. After Biden’s victory, Saudi Arabia fears what the new US president will do. Saudi Arabia wants the support of the Israeli lobby in the United States. Saudi Arabia has extended a hand of friendship to both Turkey and Israel. Saudi Arabia does not want its relations with the United States to rupture. Will Saudi Arabia’s efforts work?

The first is that US foreign policy has implications. Four Muslim countries were destroyed by US foreign policy. Libya was devastated by Obama and Hillary. Had it not been for Russia and Hezbollah behind Assad in Syria, it would have been like Libya. The situation in Iraq and Afghanistan is also in front of everyone. The situation in Afghanistan and Iraq hurt the United States. Trump has not started new wars. Biden is under the influence of former US President Barack Obama. They are “dense” like them. Such people are dangerous. This threat is making the world restless.

Iran has also linked Biden’s victory to goodwill. Iran hopes sanctions will be eased. Trade routes to Europe will open for Iran. Pakistan will also benefit from easing sanctions on Iran. Pakistan’s goods will go to Iran and Iran’s goods will come to Pakistan. Saudi Arabia wants to curb Iran’s influence in the region. If anyone can look Israel in the eye, it is Iran and Turkey. Saudi Arabia will not be made of Iran. It is said that the enemy of the enemy is the friend, Saudi Arabia is also going to sacrifice its long-standing policy under the same policy.

The question is, when Pakistan’s friends are raising the bar of love and friendship with Israel, will Pakistan lag behind in this race? Will Pak-Israel anger last forever? Prime Minister Imran Khan’s position on Palestine is the position of the nation, in which he said that our policy on relations with Israel is the same as that of the founder of Pakistan. The founders of Pakistan have always rejected relations with Israel. He used to say, “This is a dagger inserted in the heart of the Ummah. This is an illegitimate state which Pakistan will never recognize.”

Our position cannot be linked to the position of the Arab League or the OIC. Our position is based on the position of the founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam. If Pakistan backs away from the Palestinian policy, it will deviate from the Kashmir policy. Pakistan is a non-Arab country that has taken part in two wars against Israel. Pakistan’s policy is clear and cannot be changed. But our Prime Minister is second to none in changing his stance on every issue. As soon as the news of the Saudi Crown Prince’s meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister came, a certain group in Pakistan was deployed to form a consensus to recognize Israel.

A lobby of specialized intellectuals and journalists has begun work on the “Acceptable” mission. The government has started throwing leaves through social media. The past shows that our Prime Minister jumps to great heights, in this case too. If that happened then his followers would accept it as a blessing.

Russia Released the video of the “TSAR BOMBA” (King of Bombs) Explosion

Published

on

Russia has released a video of the world’s most powerful explosion, which was carried out experimentally in October 1961 during the Soviet era. It was actually a hydrogen bomb with an explosive power of 3,300 times that of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

The bomb, dubbed the “Tsar Bomba” (King of Bombs), was dropped on an island near the North Pole and detonated in the air at an altitude of 4 km above the ground.

With an explosive power of 50 megatons (50 million tons) of TNT, this hydrogen bomb is considered to be the most powerful bomb in human history, designed by the famous Soviet scientist Andrei Sakharov. This is the same Andrei Sakharov who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1975 after defecting from the Soviet Union.

The 40-minute video was uploaded to YouTube by the Russian Atomic Energy Agency a few days ago, in which the countdown to the bombing begins at 22 minutes and 22 seconds:

The blast was so intense and large that it could be seen from a distance of a thousand kilometers, while its heat was felt at a distance of 250 kilometers.

The cloud formed by the explosion of this hydrogen bomb was so high that it reached an altitude of about 700 km, that is, the point where the Earth’s atmosphere ends and space begins.

We don’t know if there is an even more powerful hydrogen bomb in the world, but we do know that it was the most powerful experimental explosion in human history.

It should be noted that the original and technical name of the hydrogen bomb is “thermonuclear bomb”, the explosion of which emits tremendous energy in the form of light, heat, and shock waves but the emission of radioactive rays is much lower than that of a normal atomic bomb.

Father Sold his Daughter To Buy A Smartphone and Motorcycle

Published

We often fall in with stories on social media and news channels highlighting the brutal face of the mentally sick people of the society.

Although, the crime rate has been declined amidst the coronavirus pandemic but a few people are out there to show their bestiality to the world by committing heinous conduct.

According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), an average of 80 murders, 289 abductions, and 91 rapes were reported across the country in 2018 in India on a daily basis.

A new heart-wrenching incident took place in the Chikkaballhar district of India. An inexorable father sold his daughter, who was only three years old, to buy a smartphone and motorcycle.

He sold his daughter to a childless couple for INR 100,000. And he bought a smartphone for INR 15,000 and a motorcycle for INR 50,000 with the money he got.

The parents had tried to sell the baby to a family in Bengaluru when she was born, but their plan failed as the hospital authority meddled. After this, another person got the wind of the situation and made a deal with them on the behest of a childless couple in another village.

After the man used all the money, his neighbor grew skeptical, and they found out that his daughter had not been at home. They informed the police who inquired some villagers including the mother of the baby. The child welfare committee found the girl and a case has been filed against the couple.

The father took to his heel but the mother was incarcerated. The authority interrogated her and she brought to the light that her husband had intimidated her that’s why she allowed selling her daughter.

What could be the rhyme and reason that goaded the parents to sell their own blood? Either they are mentally sick or the financial problems made them sell their three years old baby.
