Kashmir Outraged!

Kashmir is witnessing outrageous times. This time it seems the horror of 90s has returned to the Valley. Ironically the shocking videos have come on the special media, outraging the international community. A string of shocking videos have outraged the Kashmir Valley and raised a storm on social media amid mounting anger ahead of what is feared to be a long and troubled summer. In the first video clip a youth is seen tied to the front of an army vehicle passing through Gundipora village of Beerwah where a re-poll was heldon Thursday. The 16 second video instantly sparked outrage with Netizens, human rights activists and political leaders reacting to the army move with shock. The man strapped to the jeep in the video has been identified as Farooq Ahmad Dar, a resident of Beerwah, and that the clip was shot at Gundipora in Budgam, around 10 kilometers away. The video shows Farooq tied to the army jeep, which was followed by some other vehicles of the army including a bus ferrying force personnel. While the tied youth is being paraded through the villages some of the force personnel is heard shouting that those “who would indulge in the stone pelting” would meet the same fate. Farooq, according to reports, said that after exercising his right to vote, he was proceeding towards his sister’s village when he was caught by the army personnel who wanted to enter Beerwah village along with the polling staff. Farooq said that some local boys who saw him paraded might have shot the video and uploaded it on social networking sites. While Army said that the incident is being probed. Amid the uproar over the videos, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti quickly got into action and sought a report from the state police on the “disturbing” videos of “unacceptable” incidents which have emerged from the Budgam district from the day of polling. The Chief Minister expressed concern over the videos being circulated on social media and has directed the police to submit a detailed report about the incidents so that necessary action could be taken.
