Tlaib Speaks at Kashmir Event Featuring Jihad Supporters - Truthhurts

Posted: Feb 21st, 2021 - 6:00 pm

A Kashmir Solidarity Day event, dedicated to promoting the Islamist narrative on a decades-old conflict, drew the radicalized son of a prominent jihadist as well as a sitting member of Congress.

U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., spoke at the Feb. 5 webinar sponsored by Justice for All, the activist arm of the Chicago-based multimedia company Sound Vision. Sound Vision is an offshoot of the proselytizing group, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).

Tlaib discussed a 2019 voiding of a 70-year-old "temporary" provision that divided the disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) into two federally-administered territories that are now governed directly by New Delhi.

She described "the horrific images, the horrific actions by the Indian government," in the aftermath of the 2019 action. "We know that it [India] continues that form of oppression, not only ... in Kashmir, but all around the country, but we are stronger when we come together and fight against those injustices."

Tlaib's comments fit into a broader campaign to misrepresent and exaggerate the situation in J&K.

India imposed political detentions, Internet and media restrictions after the status change to maintain order. Many of those restrictions have since been lifted and mainstream political figures released. Local-level elections were successfully conducted in the union territory in December.

Still, Islamists have falsely cast India's changes as catastrophic and ominous. A Nov. 30 show on Muslim Network TV hosted by Sound Vision's founding chairman, Imam Abdul Malik Mujahidportrayed Kashmiris as victims of brutal aggression by India's "one million [person] army" deployed in J&K.

Tlaib responded to India's changes by introducing a resolution in Congress "condemning the human rights violations taking place in Jammu and Kashmir and supporting Kashmiri self-determination." The resolution has not advanced.

Ahmed bin Qasim, a journalist with the Turkish government mouthpiece TRT World, joined Tlaib at the Kashmir solidarity event. He is the son of prominent Kashmiri jihadist Ashiq Hussain Faktoo and hardcore separatist leader Aasiya Andrabi.

Qasim described the Kashmir policy under successive Indian administrations as "evil" and claimed that "both in the Indian secular liberal imagination, and in the Hindu fascist imagination, Kashmiris are demons, they constitute the other, and they are killable people."
