Kashmir Media Desk


Kashmir, the oldest conflict on the UN register, remains the core issue between Pakistan and India as Kashmiris struggle to fight the murderous Indian occupation. Every day, the Indian occupation in Kashmir, also known as the world's largest open air prison, produces spine-chilling stories of gore and death. More than a million Indian forces - army and paramilitary - kill, maim and blind Kashmiris with ruthless impunity as the third generation of Kashmiris continues to defy the Indian occupation with its wherewithal of brutality and arrogance.

The Unified Media Club is alive to the mounting sufferings of Kashmiris living under one of the most murderous regimes of the world. We are continuously working to promote the Kashmir cause in its socio-political context alongside its strategic implications for Pakistan and the region. In the similar vein, we are providing an efficient platform for Kashmiris to articulate and highlight their stories of sufferings and hope, adversity and resilience.
