A video showing a Kashmiri youth being used as a human shield by the Indian army in held-Kashmir, surfaced online on Thursday, causing much rage.

Indian minister claims to transform held-Kashmir in one year

The clip shows a young man tied in front of an army vehicle in what seems to be an apparent attempt to shield the Indian army from protesters. In the background, an army soldier can be heard saying: “Those who throw stones will meet the same fate.”

Taking notice of the incident, former Chief Minister of Indian-held Kashmir, Omar Abdullah expressed his shock on Twitter. “This young man was TIED to the front of an army jeep to make sure no stones were thrown at the jeep? This is just so shocking!!!!,” he said while sharing the video:

The video has since gone viral, attracting criticism from all over:

Seven killed in IOK gunbattles

According to Indian Express, the incident took place in a village at Beerwah. Speaking to the newspaper, Indian army spokesperson said the video was being verified.

Earlier this week, Indian forces killed at least four Kashmiri youth during a military operation in the Keran area of Kupwara district. Curfew-like curbs were also imposed on the movement of people across several parts of the Himalayan region to ensure the Indian by-polls were conducted successfully.

    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.Recommend
