Buried Evidence ,Unknown,Unmarked and mass graves in India-Administrated Kashmir


We are grateful to those whose work and commitments have enabled the International People’s Tribunal on Human Rights and Justice in Indian-administered Kashmir (IPTK), and for the courageous support and cooperation that IPTK has received from members of marginalized communities, including and especially women and youth.  We are particularly thankful to the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons, and to village and community members in Bandipora, Baramulla, and Kupwara, and other districts in Jammu and Kashmir.

Our work was contingent on their collaboration. IPTK thanks concerned citizens, activists, scholars, journalists, lawyers, students, members of labour unions, grassroots leaders, and those affiliated with local civil society organizations, for generously sustaining and making possible the work of this People’s Tribunal. We extend our thanks to the individuals affiliated with state institutions that have testified in confidence.

We acknowledge the solidarity of international human rights and social justice organizations and institutions, scholars, lawyers working with international humanitarian law, civil liberties and democratic rights groups in India, and advocates working with the survivors and victims in other conflict areas, and those in principled dissent to injustices perpetrated by states and groups. 

We extend our gratitude while regretfully withholding the names of those we thank here for fear that noting these names may compromise their safety and security, and place them at greater risk of repris.
