Dozens of people were severely injured in Kotli town of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) after police baton-charged demonstrators who were carrying out a peaceful rally. The demonstrators were demanding their due share of rights, which they have been deprived of under Islamabad’s more than seven-decade misrule in the region.

In order to disperse the huge number the protesters who had gathered the police also lobbed tear gas shells which exacerbated the damage.

Pictures, which later surfaced on the public domain, are testimony to law enforcement agencies’ barbarity on the people of the region. Security forces have been given a free hand by Islamabad to perpetrate brutalities on the Kashmiri people.

It wasn’t an isolated example of Pakistan’s brutalities on people of PoK. The authorities of Pakistan, exercise extreme high handedness whenever they sense a voice of dissent emerging from the region. However, an anti-establishment rage has been mounting amongst the people against the autocratic authorities of Pakistan.
