On Sep 2, 2019 I wrote the blog post “How To Get Out Of Nightmares” in which I discussed my dreams about the rape and torture of Kashmiri women.
In one dream, I saw some men surrounding a woman; then they put a really large sword-like thing in her mouth; and, then they took it out and then they put it in again. The female victim was unable to even scream due to fear. Source: How To Get Out Of Nightmares
Just an hour ago, American journalist CJ Werleman tweeted a video by “Indian American Muslim Council” where Indian women discuss how the Hindutvu thugs who were holding swords attacked them—this occurred inside Delhi.
I was a bit shocked when I read that Delhi’s Hindutvu thugs were holding swords because it matched the description I found in my lucid dream. I strongly feel that there is something very severe going on inside Kashmir and that the world needs to open their eyes to the crisis that is enfolding there. Perhaps, what is happening inside Kashmir is far worse than what is taking place inside Delhi because Kashmir was placed under a severe and lengthy lockdown (article 1, article 2).
Here are some more relevant articles about Kashmir. I feel that there is less and disproportionate coverage of what is going on inside this region.
