Hate Crime: ‘We were beaten up for being Kashmiris, my sister’s clothes were torn’

On Friday, a video surfaced on social media networks in which a Kashmiri woman was being beaten up by a mob in India’s capital, New Delhi. It was reported that she was beaten up for ‘feeding stray dogs’.

However, the brother of the victim, who was also targeted told Free Press Kashmir that they were beaten up because of their identity, that they are Kashmiris.

This hate crime is a continuation of a series of attacks that Kashmiri students and professionals have faced in India.
