Key Developments in the Human Rights Situation in Indian-Administered Kashmir October 1 - October 31, 2023

In October 2023, Indian authorities continued to commit grave human rights violations in Indian-administered Kashmir (IAK). Indian forces killed at least 12 and arbitrarily detained at least 6. Indian authorities banned a pro-self-determination political party, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP), and initiated legal proceedings against Arundhati Roy, an Indian novelist, and Sheikh Showkat Hussain, a Kashmiri professor of international law, for participating in a public seminar on Kashmir in 2010.  Indian authorities increased surveillance, detained Muslim religious leaders and closed Muslim places of worship to ensure there was no assembly or expression in support Palestinian human rights.
