A few years back in 1991, on a cold February night, a group of Indian soldiers of the Indian army entered two villages in north Kashmir on an anti-insurgency mission and allegedly raped as many as 30 women.21 years later, rape and murder of a young medical student in Delhi reached every corner of the country leading to a mass protest. All the young women in Kashmir were inspired to re-open the KunanPoshpora case after hearing about the protest. They wanted to go back to the history and look at what happened to the survivors of 1991.

The book named ‘Do You Remember KunanPoshpora’ was an initiative of five Kashmiri women activists who wanted to remind the authorities about the mass rape that had taken place in the valley and no action was taken on that. The book talks about the justice as a question till date, of disgrace, of the responsibilities of the state and about the effect of the suffering.

The book is divided into seven chapters titled: KunanPoshpora and Women in Kashmir, Sexual Violence and Freedom in Kashmir, That Night in KunanPoshpora, Life in KunanPoshpora Today, Inquires and Freedom, People Who Remember and The Recent Struggle: An Insider’s View. The book contains records of police investigation, victims’ medical records and civil society’s perspectives on the case. This book is a very interesting read about the torture that the women in the valley had been facing. The book is easily available on Amazon.in .
