India claims to be the largest democracy of the world, but such credentials stand exposed when it comes to Jammu and Kashmir and the rights of Kashmiris.

The puppet Chief Minister of occupied Kashmir, Omar Abdullah, on October 21, this year, said that Armed Forces Special Act (AFSPA), a draconian law that provides unbridled powers to Indian troops in Jammu and Kashmir, would be revoked from some areas very soon.
