Christmas, Palestine & Kashmir

Nasir Khan, December 18, 2018

Season's Greetings, Merry Christmas and Happy Yule to all who live in peaceful, democratic countries where human rights are respected and the rule of law is followed. 

But the occupied people of Palestine live under a brutal colonial power, Israel, which is busy killing and uprooting the Palestinians. 

The same story is repeated in Kashmir, where Kashmiris demand freedom and the right to self-determination. In response, the Indian army kills, maims, blinds and terrorizes the Kashmiri people ruthlessly. The Indian rulers think that by their military force, they will prevail over the demands of the people of Kashmir, as they have done for the last seven decades. But the people of Kashmir continue to resist the Indian rule.
