Kashmiri children are riddled with pellets fired at them. According to the Indian foreign ministry, these children, who have lost their eyesight, will be treated in New Delhi. The ministry has also stated that pellet guns will not be used in the future. After what the Indian forces have done in Kashmir, these developments seem like crocodile tears. Around a hundred innocent children have been subjected to Indian barbarity , pellets fired straight at the crowd. Similarly, numerous other Kashmiris have had to face brutality from the Indian army who treats them as subhumans. 

The heart cries looking at the sufferings of the Kashmiris, but the world remains silent. It is about time that United Nations takes notice of the situation in Kashmir and initiates serious steps to address Indian brutality.
