In Occupied Kashmir, the practice of killing youths in fake police encounters is gaining momentum once again. There have been a number of incidents in recent months that have been termed as police encounters by Indian forces, but the families of the slain youths and independent sources are adamant that it be like a Bollywood movie scene. In one incident, a gunfight was reported over a corpse. A simple identification of fake encounters is that in the boiling atmosphere of Kashmir, when an armed freedom fighter goes through a contest and battle, his family recognizes his decision with great pomp. Parents of such young people justify their decision to disarm their children in front of the media and present solid arguments for it. Instead of stating any other reason, including unemployment, they simply attribute the act to the Kashmir issue, or the response to human rights abuses. Conversely, when a young person falls victim to a crime of innocence, the effects of pain are more visible on the faces of his parents than satisfaction. This is because they are not mentally prepared for such an accident. A similar incident shook Kashmir once again when three youths were martyred in a fake encounter.

The military said in a statement that the young men were planning an attack on the Indian Army, but did not provide any evidence that the young men had any past record or evidence of action. It is as if the simplest excuse and excuse to kill a person is to be accused of planning a terrorist act. Echoes of the incident were heard on Al Jazeera TV and the Guardian in London. A police encounter took place in Srinagar city in which three youths from Pulwama, 65 km away, were killed. The three youths were identified as Zubair Lone, 25, Ather Mushtaq, 16, and Ajaz Maqbool Ganai, 22. One of them was a young mason, while two were students. The family of one of the youths insisted that their son had lunch at home and a few hours later there were reports of a police encounter in Srinagar. How did the youth get there so quickly? Where did he get the weapons and when and where did he get military training? The young man’s family is confident they are calling for an investigation into the murder. The bodies of these young men were not even given to their families and they were buried in a remote place of Sonamarg, where reaching out is the only thing that matters for the family.

The land allotted for this purpose on the hill of Sonamarg in April last year has been filled less than a year ago. This shows how fast the Indian Army is engaged in genocide of Kashmiris. A photo and video of a young man’s father digging his son’s grave has gone viral on social media, in which he slams his beard and says that if the world did not take notice of the incident, many young people in Kashmir and similarly in fake encounters will be killed. When the man arrived at the new Sonamarg cemetery in search of his son’s grave, the exhumation revealed that the grave was completely empty, to which he said he suspected that the soldiers had dumped the bodies in front of eagles. Make exhibition graves. Under the pretext of Corona, the Indian Army no longer hands over the bodies of the martyrs to their families. So far, the bodies of more than 100 youths have been buried at unknown locations away from their homes, including Junaid Sahrai, the youngest son of Hurriyat Kashmir president and senior Hurriyat leader Muhammad Ashraf Sahrai. Instead of Corona, the reason is the process of making the funerals passionate and crowded, which makes the deceased and his sacrifice attractive to other young people.

The strategy of fake police encounters has been going on since the beginning of the armed movement in Kashmir. It’s as if this strategy has been around for more than three decades. There are many conveniences to killing young people in a fake police encounter. On the one hand, competition continues, and because of this competition, a whole environment is created, and the livelihood and interests of countless people become associated with this environment. Thus war becomes an industry. In this way, prisoners are removed from the path without going through the process of interrogation, court rounds, police stations and prisons. Now there is a new excuse to plan attacks. Like the US pre-emptive strike, this excuse is hurting the innocent, as the attack planning sticker can be affixed to the body of any victim to get rid of the questions that arise after any such operation. This is a new form of human rights violation, against which Prime Minister Imran Khan and Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi have also spoken on the occasion of Kashmiris’ Right to Self-Determination Day, but the real issue remains that human rights Violations are not stopping, and India is waging a war on the civilian population, and our statements and tweets are not enough to change that.
