Kashmir Scholars publish a biography of the Association of the Parents of Disappeared Persons, Kashmir

There are reportedly over 8,000 cases of enforced disappearances in Indian administered
Jammu and Kashmir. These disappearances began in the 1990s even
before the enactment and implementation of The Jammu & Kashmir Armed Forces
Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in September 1990, which provides impunity for India’s
armed forces.
The Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons, Kashmir (APDP) was co-founded
in 1994 by Parveena Ahangar with the support of legal professionals and activists as
well as the victim families of enforced disappearances. Parvez Imroz, who now heads
the Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society (JKCCS), was part of this cofounding
process. APDP is the oldest human rights movement and organisation in
Kashmir. This biography focuses on the APDP led by Parveena Ahangar. You can read the biography here
