The 90 Day mark of the Siege of Jammu and Kashmir by the occupying Indian army is fast approaching and the deafening silence of world leaders over the human rights violations against the civilians is utterly disappointing.

Kashmiris are a resilient people. But our inaction is not excusable.

Historically, Canada has played an important leadership role in numerous human rights and social justice causes around the world. We can do it again!
