Kashmir: Indian Army accused of torture – BBC News


A BBC investigation has uncovered allegations of brutal beatings and torture by soldiers in Indian-administered Kashmir.

The Indian government withdrew the region’s semi-autonomous status in early August. There’s since been a clampdown on dissent and thousands of arrests, and it’s being seen by some as a drive by the Hindu nationalist government for more control over India’s only Muslim majority state. The Indian Army has described the allegations as baseless.

BBC News at Tenโ€™s Sameer Hashmi has been inside Kashmir and sent this report, which some people may find distressing.

  1. Military of any country misuse their powers and too much rights given by governments. US military also killing innocent people time immorial. It is government who command them to do so. No difference between ISI and RSS of Hindus

  2. Why is Britain incarcerating Tommy Robinson who is fighting for his birth rights in Britain? Indians demand that Britain should release him from prison. We are tired of Islamic sympathizers when over 450,000 Kashmiri Hindu pandits have been driven out of their homes in Kashmir.

  3. "BBC investigates"..hahahha BBC LOL,BBC doesnt investigate BBC creates narratives out of individual incidents, bcoz BBC always expected india is going to be a failed state now that its crossing "great" britain BBC keeps on trying to malign India's Image

  4. The thing is why don't u fuck yourself.. i can also make a documentary on you. Showing u r starving with hunger. The thing is how you look into the matter.. you guys are still looking into the casteism doing hindu and muslim. M sure if there where any hindu reporter he would have done the opposite of you.

  5. Save Kashmir plz๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

  6. i request bbc to make an unbiasing documentary video on the things done by British to these countries in the name of colonization upto partition.. British media companies.. you are the absolute least deserving people to speak india pakistan dispute.. no offense โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ

  7. Indian Army is in reality a professional organisation in torturing its own citizens. Thousands of people were killed and maimed in J&K and North East in the past is a clear testimony. Human rights is just not there in their dictionary because most of the troops are too illiterate to understand such novel concept . Stop such cosmetic white wash ……. It's pathetic that Indian media is silent on the grave issue. RIP Indian Army and biased Media

  8. They rape their woman, they shit on their own sacred river, they protect their cow while wearing cow product, they says they're peaceful but history proved they tried to invade China in 1962, Indian are hypocrites..

  9. BBC keeps showing one side of the problem. Not the other side.
    It's the same as if Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars Franchise commits homicide of thousands of the Empire's People and then the Audience claps their hands at the so called freedom fighter for taking lives… BBC is run by immature children isn't it? Just trying to get more viewership. That's the difference between Mortal and God.

  10. I am saying this the people done this to these locals are nit from Army.. RSS men in soldiers uniform tortute them.. but those Indians sipporting Kashmir's violence by giving examples of Ireland etc i wish and pray that same happen with those Indians even i wish they face natural Disasters.. because its ok as Ireland and Kashmir is also suffering..๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‘

  11. The right move by Indian government, we don't need terrorism in our country. Kashmir is used as a shield against Indian army by terrorists for decades. Now even pakistani PM has said they got 40 terrorist organisation in Pakistan. We don't want to loose life on the name of Jihad.

  12. Scotland,ireland i think thatโ€™s enough for you guys to show the world thereโ€™s no peace in Europe your prime minister ๐Ÿ˜
    Your economy
    You guys are nobody without the support of USA
    A unsuccessful nation now who used to rule the world the most unsuccessful people now
