NEW DELHI (AFP) Medical charity Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF) said Tuesday it had resumed counselling traumatised victims of unrest in Indian-occupied Kashmir after suspending its work last month amid a surge in violence. The Muslim-majority region has been hit by a wave of anti-India protests since June 11, when a 17-year-old student was killed by a police teargas shell. Since then Indian security forces have been accused of killing a total of 109 people, mostly teenagers and students. Were dealing with a population already heavily traumatised by over two decades of violence, and today people are continuing to suffer psychologically, said Maria Veerart, MSFs Mental Health Officer in Kashmir. MSF suspended its work on September 12 because of increasing violence and a series of round-the-clock curfews. Veerart said the organisation had resumed visiting victims of the recent violence and had provided counselling to 50 people since last week. Occupied Kashmir has been under rolling curfews since June. The tense situation has made it difficult for charity workers to reach people confined to their homes, and they have turned to telephone counselling instead. MSF is also working on a television soap opera about mental health issues, following in the footsteps of the MSF-produced radio show Alaw Baya Alaw (Call Brother Call) about mental health.
