Protests continued in Kashmir today after the government of India executed Mohammad Afzal Guru over the weekend. He was convicted of involvement in a 2001 attack on Parliament. Critics allege Afzal Guru did not get a fair trial, citing numerous lapses in the government’s case against him. His family also was not notified in advance of the execution. FSRN’s Jasvinder Sehgal reports that activists are also blaming the Indian government for carrying out the execution for political reasons.
