Do You Remember Kunan Poshpora?

A conversation with Essar Batool, co author of the book, Do you remember Kunanposhpora? Essar Batool works to develop leadership among young women and volunteers with Jammu Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society, documenting human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir. There have been over 60,000 cases of documented cases of torture in Indian administered Kashmir. Kuman and Poshpora are twin villages in Indian administered Kashmir. In 1991, 31 women were gang raped by the 4th Rajpuntana Rifles regiment of the Indian Army. No conviction have been made, despite survivors launching a new case in 2013. Do you remember Kunanposhpora? documents the stories, the horrors and the dignity of these women as they search for justice. This interview first aired on APEX Express, KPFA.
