Kashmir: Government Using Pellet Guns To Suppress Protests

Hospital visits and media reports paint a very different picture from the Modi government ‘s narrative about what’s going on in Kashmir.

SRINAGAR, Jammu & Kashmir — A steady trickle of civilian victims of pellet-gun injuries at the city hospital has lent credence to reports of unrest in the Valley, despite the Modi government’s insistence that Kashmir’s population has welcomed the decision to nullify Article 370, a constitutional provision that granted Jammu & Kashmir special status, and bifurcate the state.

The Indian government has deployed thousands of troops, arrested political leaders, severed phone lines, blacked out the internet, and shared carefully choreographed videos of National Security Advisor Ajit Doval meeting “locals”, in an attempt to control the narrative emerging from Kashmir.
