Purgatory in Kashmir
2 in stock
Purgatory in Kashmir documents how the state’s criminal justice system has been utterly inadequate in addressing the alienation of Kashmir’s youth while failing to respect the commitments of juvenile rights. Focusing on the institutions of the state and courts, it shows how the former has consistently failed to meet the mandate of its own laws on juvenile justice, either by not institutionally implemeting them or violating them in practice. As a result, Kashmir’s children are caught in a cycle of incarceration and despondency through illegal punitive and arbitrary procedures. What emerges out of this, politico-judicial mess is a tragic picture of militarisation, surveillance and alienation by the state of Kashmir’s children.
