Tonight on Channel 4 at 11:10 PM, Kashmir’s Torture Trail:
In 2010 Kashmir erupted in violent protests in which 118 demonstrators died. This programme meets the Kashmiri lawyer determined to bring India to account for events in Kashmir.
In the course of campaigning for peaceful democratic self-determination for Kashmir, I have often said that what is needed is incontrovertible evidence of human rights abuses in the region which can be given a high profile. I haven’t been involved in this Channel 4 documentary but I hope it will not be a disappointment: it is in the interests of billions of people across South Asia that this dispute should be resolved.
Photos from my recent trip to Kashmir are available here and video of the trip and the debate I led is here.
