A Cruel April in Kashmir – Cristina Rodriguez

A 12 year old boy was shot after attending a protest of an election. Among the 12 year old boy was 7 other people who were shot and killed. On April 9, there was an election for a vacant parliament seat. The cause of the person’s resignation was to protest against last summer’s killings. Only 7% of the town’s population voted. When people started rioting by throwing rocks, the police followed by shooting the 8 people. Hundreds of people are killed from protesting; and multiple people are injured from attacks each month. It’s a constant loop of people being terrorized each month.
