saeed | 3 years ago | Reply | Recommend Is this the justified act of law enforcement agencies to their so claimed citizens. If Kashmir were really the integral part of india, this video would not be seen by the world. May anybody fetch me a simple example of such barbarism to her own citizens? This proves Kashmir was never a part of India, but is an occupied territory.
