For tens of years, Kashmiris have suffered the atrocities of the Indian army. Most recently, the Indian government has asked all tourists, students (all non-Kashmiris) in IoK to evacuate immediately from the land. An addition of 25000 Indian troops has been made to the already heavily militarised region. Major leaders such as Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah, have been kept under house arrest. A major Kashmiri separatist, Yaseen Malik has also been arrested and kept under questionable circumstances in an Indian prison. 

Article 370 grants Kashmiris an independent status, having autonomy in all state affairs except defence, communications, and foreign relations. It allows Kashmir to have its own constituency, a flag and defines the state’s ‘permanent residents’. It applies to all of Indian occupied Kashmir, including Jammu and Ladakh. The article also provides these ‘permanent residents’ to have special benefits regarding education, employment, and other benefits. 

On 5th August 2019, the Indian Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, moved a proposal to revoke Article 370 in the Rajya Sabha. This strips Kashmiris of their basic rights and is a clear violation of the constitution. 

I urge you, whoever you are and wherever you are, to sign this petition. Hundreds of thousands of innocent souls have suffered. To speak up is an act of defiance in itself.
