India is hiding the daily Pulwama type acts of militarized violence from the eyes and ears of the world community. On the other hand however, silence on Kashmir of the world community is evidently deafening, and troubling to Kashmiris, who quite justifiably ask the simple question: are we not a part of humanity? Of course we are part of humanity, and as such we do not accept silence and indifference of the international community, said the JKLF memorandum
