The above sentence is my attempt at paraphrasing that age old saying.
All Kashmiris, whether in Kashmir or living overseas, have to do their part in voicing their opposition to India and its crimes in Kashmir. Our collective voices will resonate so the world will take notice, like people take notice of a tsunami even though it is formed by individual, insignificant droplets of harmless water. You might think that your's is but an insignificant voice, or that it doesn't matter what you have to say because no one is listening anyway; but please take time to think for a moment. It is this resigned outlook about our freedom aspirations that our voices have not been heard till now. Every drop counts! Every email that goes to the US embassy or to your local MP's in western countries adds to the effort. It is not only your duty toward your motherland, but also the right thing to do.
It is our duty to tell the story of how Amin and Javed of Bomai were murdered by the RR in February of this year, and how the government established that infact they were murdered in cold blood. And yet the murderers are still free: free to terrorize innocent Kashmiris. Maybe they were the same Indian army personnel who raped and murdered Neelofar and Asiya; after all, punishment for one murder or mulitple murders is the same. Or in the case of Indian occupation troops in Kashmir, the punishment is a pat on the back - for a job well done of subjugating Kashmiris. Not a single Indian trooper has been prosecuted for any human rights violation even though inquiry after inquiry concluded that the Indian forces were at fault.
Is it not our duty as Kashmiris to bring this to the attention of the world? The world media is hypocritical and under the influence of zionists to have the conscience of bringing this absurdity to the attention of their viewers and readers. How absurd it is that two inquiries set up by the government so far this year have implicated the Indian forces and not a single Indian personnel has been punished. Any responsible news organization would have reported about this, but only if they weren't prejudiced.
Is it not our duty to to tell the story of Mohuiddin Malik, an innocent carpenter from Pakherpoor who was shot dead in cold blood at his home in the presence of his young family? Is it not our duty to inform the world that Kashmiris are still awaiting justice for his death even though the murderers have been known all along and yet are still free, patrolling the streets of Kashmir - free to commit more crimes?
If you can use email, you can help bring the plight of Kashmiris to the world attention. Four innocent unarmed protesters have been killed within the past week and the world is still unaware that Kashmiris are being denied even the most basic of rights: the right to protest. The world is still unaware that these four Kashmiri youth were killed while protesting peacefully against India. We are not a "bilateral issue" between India and Pakistan - as the hypocritical world media projects us as. It is up to us to flood the inbox of all leaders of western countries with our story, and relate our yearning for freedom and an escape from Indian tyranny. It is our responsibility to bring the protests from the streets of Kashmiri to the attention of the world leaders.
Please do not shy away from writing a few sentences to the most powerful man on this planet and let him know about what you as a Kashmiri want. Let him know about the crimes that the Indians have committed and how we are being denied the same rights that he has been a proponent of for citizens of other counttries. Just last week, President Obama, commenting on the protests in Iran, had this to say, "The universal rights to assembly and free speech must be respected, and the United States stands with all who seek to exercise those rights." Then why is he silent on the Kashmiris being denied the same rights? Why have four innocent lives been lost when criminal Indian troopers deny us the right to protest, and not a word of sympathy from the Whitehouse? Why does President Obama similarly not chastise the Indian government? Is it because our voices have not reached him?
