 Human Rights Watch: Rape in Kashmir
Since the Indian government crackdown against militants in the disputed territory of Kashmir began in earnest in January 1990, both security forces and armed militants have used rape as a weapon: to punish, intimidate, coerce, humiliate and degrade.110 Rape by Indian security forces most often occurs during crackdowns, cordon-and-search operations during which men are held for identification in parks or schoolyards while security forces search their homes. In these situations, the security forces frequently engage in collective punishment against the civilian population by assaulting residents and burning their homes. Rape is used as a means of targeting women whom the security forces accuse of being militant sympathizers; in raping them, the security forces are attempting to punish and humiliate the entire community.111 Rape has also occurred frequently during reprisal attacks on civilians following militant ambushes. In many of these attacks, the selection of victims is seemingly arbitrary and the women, like other civilians assaulted or killed, aretargeted simply because they happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Kashmiri militant groups have also committed rape. In some cases, militants have raped women whose family members were believed to be informers or supporters of rival groups. In other cases, women have been raped and killed after being held as hostages for their male relatives. Although some militant leaders have condemned these abuses and vowed to take action against those who have committed rape, few have been able to discipline their own members, and the abuses continue.   (Full Text)

 Hostages in Kashmir

Date: Thu, 27 Feb 1997
From: David Mill Subject: Hostages in Kashmir
It is 605 days since Dirk Hasert (German), Paul Wells, Keith Mangan (both British) and Don Hutchings (American) were taken hostage in Kashmir. Sadly, while their families continue to fight for their release, public awareness is not as strong as it could and should be.
We're hoping that, as well as using the site as a source of information for media coverage, some of you may help boost the campaign by publicising its launch and perhaps also link to it (possibly using one of the icons available on the site)?
These men shouldn't be forgotten and, like us, perhaps you'll feel inclined to try to help them and their families.
David Mill

 Revealed where South Africa can sell arms
July 28, 1995
Until now a secret, SA's classification of potential arms-buying countries reveals 30 blacklisted countries, reports Stefaans Brummer
NIGERIA, Libya, Sudan, Iraq, Yemen ... These are some of the 30-odd countries blacklisted by South Africa's new human rights-leaning classification of arms client countries. The secret list is published by the Mail & Guardian today.
The classification is a substantial review of earlier versions and appears designed to clear South Africa's reputation as an international arms-dealing skunk. The change from an apartheid-era version revealed by the M&G last December -- and in Armscor's attitude to publication of the leaked document -- is marked.
* In the Middle East, restrictions are imposed neither on Israel nor on many Arab states. It seems to reflect a search for new markets, while the old are not alienated. It may be asked whether good foreign policy does not demand a choice between potential enemies. The same can be asked about India and Pakistan -- both of which are classified with the same Category II level of restriction -- in the light of the ongoing Kashmir dispute between the two countries. The government is clearly not ready to alienate either.   (Full Text)

 Islamic fundamentalism turns paradise into Hell

From: Kashyap Pandit, news:soc.culture.indian.jammu-kashmir
4 Aug 1996
Cradled in the lap of majestic mountains of the Himalayas, Kashmir is the most beautiful place on earth. On visiting the Valley of Kashmir, Jehangir, the great Indian Mughal emperor, is said to have exclaimed: "If there is paradise anywhere on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here."
And, till very, very recent times it was Paradise on Earth, but now the paradise has been turned into hell.   (Full Text)
