Yet another example of the Indian Army’s utter disregard for the lives of Kashmiri Muslims.
A strong indication of the Indian Army’s use of brute and brutal force in the Valley came to light on the morning of January 6, 1993, when the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) went on a 4-hour feverish killing spree, leaving 57 people dead and more than 400 buildings charred and rubbed.
“The large number of casualties that shook the world press even caused TIME Magazine to print its version of the massacre under the headline, “Blood Tide Rising,” with an introduction reading, “Maybe there’s a special one.
The Independent of the United Kingdom covered the mass murder from its New Delhi desk a few days after it happened. It claimed that senior officials in India had “recognised that on Wednesday, paramilitary members had gone on a ‘shameful’ rampage of killing in the mountainous state of Kashmir” (6th Jan 1993).
If you still have a so-called humane, secular, democratic being in you, go ahead and google the ‘Sopore Massacre.’
