International community is observing the International Day of Families today but the families in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir are still facing victimization at the hands of Indian forces.

According to a report of Kashmir Media Service, Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed killings, enforced disappearances, torture, rapes, and other brutalities by the Indian forces over the three decades.

The report highlighted that more than eight thousand people have vanished in custody after being arrested by the Indian army, police, and paramilitary forces since 1990.   

Meanwhile, the chief of the Peoples Democratic Party Mehbooba Mufti said that the low turnout in recent polling for the Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency shows people discontent against Modi policies to divide Kashmir into two so-called union territories.

She said that the polling conveyed a message to Delhi that the decisions made in 2019 and thereafter concerning land, state subjects, and jobs are not acceptable to the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
