Open Letter Demanding the Release of Baba Jan Hunzai

Shame on us (Kashmiris who talk about the rights of 84,471 sq. m) for not addressing this issue yet. Meanwhile, many thanks to activists in Pakistan and elsewhere who've highlighted this activists' detention. I think a delegation of civil society activists should arrange to meet the 'Powers That Be' in Pakistan and secure his release. Knowing this case, he will not be released without civil society intervention.


Here is a summary of his ordeal, which includes a list of notable thinkers who have joined the campaign for his release. Please also sign the petition embedded in the link below:

Freedom of Movement across the LOC

Is it possible? Tomorrow may spring a surprise.


Tried contacting the UN's Political Affairs Dept. all day (New York's day that is) over the telephone....No luck, do they not work on a Friday? Are they all Muslims? I doubt it! Let's see what transpires tomorrow...A prominent PK channel will also be covering events at Seri - Khuiratta. The UN's Secretary General is in the region too and he's already given a strong statement in reference to the will of the people of Kashmir earlier today. Not to forget that PK's ISI is also working hard to subvert whatever is planned by JKNSF for tomorrow. Oh and last but not necessary least, Yasin Malik is due in Kotli on Sunday.
