Theme of the Day this year is Orange the World: End Violence against Women Now.

Meanwhile, in his message on the day, the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said violence against women and girls continues to be the most pervasive and pressing human rights issue in the world today.

He also called for evolving comprehensive, long-term strategies to tackle the root causes of violence, protect the rights of women and girls, and promote strong and autonomous women’s rights movements.

In this connection, an analytical report released by Kashmir Media Service, said women in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir continue to be haunted by fear, insecurity, agony, mourning and howls of pain inflicted by occupying India.

It said, India has designed its own legal license to target the sanctity and dignity of Kashmiri women.

Particularly after 5th August , 2019, the BJP’s goons now have legal cover to openly pursue their evil agenda by passing derogatory remarks about Kashmiri women while ignoring their human and religious rights.

According to the report, over 2,300 women have been martyred and 11,246 molested by the Indian troops in the occupied territory since 1989. Indian state terrorism has rendered 22,936 Kashmiri women widowed in the past 30 years.

Indian troops are routinely subjecting Kashmiri women to sexual harassment to humiliate Kashmiris

The report said Global rights bodies need to come forward to as Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir is overflowing with the blood of the innocent, who hope that their voices will finally reach the international community and spur them into action to restrict India from committing such heinous crimes against Kashmiri women.
