By Muslim Mirror Staff

The Jammu Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society (JKCCS) on Monday released the first comprehensive report on torture in Jammu and Kashmir titled Torture: Indian State’s Instrument of Control in Indian Administered Jammu and Kashmir.

JKCCS is a federation of human rights organisations and individuals working in Jammu and Kashmir.

The report focuses on the torture perpetrated in Jammu and Kashmir by the government forces since 1990 and provides a contextual understanding of various phases of torture being perpetrated in Jammu and Kashmir since 1947.

As per the report rape, sodomy, electrocution including in genitals, sleep deprivation and hanging from the ceiling are some of the cruel forms of torture used by armed forces and Jammu and Kashmir police against people in Kashmir since 1990.

“Due to legal, political and moral impunity extended to the armed forces, not a single prosecution has taken place in any case of human rights violations,” the report says, adding that ” “Torture is used as a matter of policy by the Indian State in Jammu and Kashmir in a systematic and institutional manner, as all the institutions of the State, be it a legislature, executive, judiciary and armed forces form a part.”

Using 432 case studies, the report charts out trends and patterns, targets, perpetrators, sites, contexts and impacts of torture in Jammu and Kashmir.
The report includes stripping the detainees naked (190 out of 432 cases studied for this report), beating with sticks, iron rods or leather belts (326 cases), roller treatment (169 cases), water-boarding (24 cases), dunking detainees’ head in water (101 cases), electrocution including in genitals (231 cases), hanging from the ceiling, mostly upside down (121 cases), burning of the body with hot objects (35 cases), solitary confinement (11 cases), sleep deprivation (21 cases), sexual torture (238 cases) including rape and sodomy, among others.

The report recommends for an international investigation on torture in Kashmir, led by UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, besides urging India to ratify the UN Convention against Torture and end the phenomenon of torture.

  1. If government of India allow more NGOs to work in Kashmir, it would be better to understand the condition and it may also helpful to connect the people of Kashmir with mainland India.

  2. What is reported is outrageous and a State terrorism. Vicious cycle of action and reaction will be counter productive. May better senses prevail

  3. Indian should be pressurised for these human rights violations and world and UNO and other huma rights associations should at least think about the past and future of the peopleof Jammu and Kashmir rather going deep into the crimes. Where are we living It’s fire everywhere! Please highlight the issue and try to see the ground realities! Thanks!

  4. It’s beyond the tolerance now.If we really bother about Muslims in Kashmir and around the world we must unite and raise our voices.The more we delay the worst ll get the conditions

  5. Godi media also knows the fact about of violations of Human right in J&K but they don’t want to highlight it because they would like to remain with BJP

    • So someone throws a stone at you and you rape them? Incredible India! You should put that on your promotional material. Absolutely amazing.

      • Are you stupid ?Most of these cases date back to 1990s …There is hardly any Human Rights violation by army in Kashmir now …..Some Pakistanis cry against the use of pellet guns while they use bullets on innocent Pashtoons …Indian army is still far better which use pellets on stone throwers …

        • Fouk yo mama u cow piss drinkers it’s still happening today not the 1990 so stop talking bullshit u dirty cow piss drinking Hindu dogs

        • Utkarsh when you been to visit kashmir? Since when have not u seen what is happening here. What is rights violation to you. In a single word i wud ask to shut up if u cant be human enough. And let me tell u, we dont expect any good from you ppl.

    • You can’t justify this appalling behaviour by Indian Terrorists you are not human if someone did that to you or your family members would you then say the same?

    • This is a war against all muslims all over the world they label us Terrorists when they are the Terrorists they want to get rid of Islam never never never will you get rid of Islam you unbelievers plan and Allah plans and Allah is the best of planners and you unbelievers shall burn in Hell forever for killing innocent muslims!!!!!!!

  6. What the hell is happening in India .. Really this kind of inhuman tortures . What Indian government doing really.

  7. What about human rights of soldiers who get killed by jihadis and kashmiri pandits who were killed and thrown out of valley.

    • The Indian Terrorists need to stay out of Kashmir!!!! Kashmir belongs to the people who are born there and lived there all their life why are the Indians going there in the first place the Indians need to mind their own business live and let live. Hope you Indian Evil Terrorists burn in Hell forever .

  8. This is reporting of symptom and not the root cause. I wonder why such incidents do not happen in rest of India including other districts of Kashmir except Srinagar. If Pakistan sponsered Sunni Muslims of Srinagar give up their dream of saperating from India and accept the legitimacy of Indian state, the entire region will normalise and prosper like rest of India. But they would rather insist upon a Taliban style Islamic state…. which India will never allow.

  9. This is happening there bcoz they support pakistani promoted terrorists. And this would continue if they don’t accept to stay under the secular country like India. They should leave the dream of creating another Islamic Talibani state. As this is connected with India , India will never allow it to happen for future risks of India. And world will never allow with growing hate towards Islamic terrorists. Better they live with India peacefully otherwise they along with their future will continue to live with never ending misery. Kashmiris need to be wise. What they r doing is foolishness not freedom struggle.

    • Lisen u wanker soon u see as the world will end and u see Muslim everwear bec it’s in quran u can do what u want but it’s not long from the time when Muslim will come in power again read the history how long Muslim ruled the world and then the world is to end

    • If Gandhi and his associates had subscribed to your theory India would still be the slave of British. Sharm Tum Ko Magar nahin aayi.

    • You Indians are the Terrorists you indians have no morals no principals no humanity when muslims ruled in India you Indians lived peacefully and safely under Muslim rule history tells you!!! You Indian Zionists you just want to get rid of Islam it’s not going to happen never and you unbelievers will burn in Hell forever

  10. Sir with due respect, Have you any information about the extrajudicial killings of a disabled person in Kashmir by security forcea

  11. Wow, its so surprising to find that lot of people find these atrocities against these women are right (if u r just in ur thoughts, where r ur human rights?) Is it bcz it is muslim communities that r victims that make u forget about ur HUMAN RIGHTS BELIEVE? Or r u hyprocrits?. However, what if this happen to your family members? Would u have reacted same n give the same conclusion?. Pls, stop being racist n comunal. U must like same for others that what u had like for urself. Sad to see these bad mindset.

  12. What terrorists do are acts for which they are called terrorists. If a legitimate army uses the same tactics then it is actually reducing itself to that level. When the Constitution of India allows you to be proven guilty before verdict then how come an army which is the guardian of the same Constitution violate it’s principles so blatantly in guise of eliciting information ? It remains a fact that no part of. Kashmir will go to Pakistan thus those who wish it should be asked to leave the country and if they continue to stay and create mess then they should be Legally tried for Treason. That should be the only stance the Indian army and should be taking.

  13. I think we as Muslims need to unite and let the world now we won’t take more off this crap all over the world only Muslim are been target why Muslims in indian Muslims in palatine Muslims in France it’s just muslim in every where they making life hard for us in every country I think it’s time we should get together and ask why the more we suffer the more it’s happening everyone now it’s happening no one is stopping it why I think like it’ say in quran it’s the end off world it’s going to be a big warr and the world is going to end

    • This is a war against all muslims all over the world they label us Terrorists when they are the Terrorists they want to get rid of Islam never never never will you get rid of Islam you unbelievers plan and Allah plans and Allah is the best of planners and you unbelievers shall burn in Hell forever for killing innocent muslims!!!!!!!

  14. AS muslims we need to unite with all other muslims and fight these bastard hindus of india who are involved in this .

  15. Its completely wrong…. a big shame who did this ??? its a govt failure and they can’t do what they wanted to do in J&K.

    Where is UNO and Human Rights ?????

  16. O Muslim
    You are the chosen people off Allah (swt)
    You are the people off Mohammed (saw)
    Declare war against these evil dirty people
    A cow piss drinker cannot fight a man off Allah
    Declare jihad against them
    It’s better to die with dignity than to die a dogs life
    Stand up against them
    Force your leaders to stand up against them
    Death will come sooner or later
    Would you rather die a shaheed or die in oppression

  17. Since 1990 means since congress went out of power,,…..since 1980 when rss child bjp entered politics religion entered politics evil entered politics,,…1990 non,congress govt bjp supported govt vp singh govt ordered and oversaw kashmiri pandits exodus,…bjp refused to do anything for them as they recognized ram temple is the way to power to absolute power,.,,and they succeeded in their objective,….

    khushwant singh in his book End of India writes that after seeing 1947 and 1984 he thought he saw he had seen the worst that can happen in india,…..2002 made him change his mind….

    sardar patel and jinnah’s worst fears have come true since 2014….this is what these 2 secular minds feared would happen ..,…if rss gets to do what it wants

  18. This is a war against all muslims all over the world they label us Terrorists when they are the Terrorists they want to get rid of Islam never never never will you get rid of Islam you unbelievers plan and Allah plans and Allah is the best of planners and you unbelievers shall burn in Hell forever for killing innocent muslims!!!!!!!
