No more bloodshed! Don’t let this become another story that is brushed under the rug. We cannot stand for w injustice. We need peace, we need to protect the people of Kashmir, we need a solution from BOTH sides, a solution that puts an end to the evils plaguing Kashmir!

Baffled to see such barbarism. Just look at your own kids and then look at this kid. It's heartbreaking to see. @HRC need to take some action against these type of acts. Humanity needs awakening. #Kashmir pic.twitter.com/BFi8t5OxGr

Several renowned Bollywood celebrities including Dia Mirza, Vishal Dadlani and Hansal Mehta have called out BJP supporters for mocking and sharing the images of the little helpless boy and his deceased grandfather.
Do you not have an iota of empathy left in you?? https://t.co/PJYT4uZZbj

ये तो बिलकुल वैसा है, जैसे मोदीजी ने TV पर हमारे सैनिकों के बलिदान को नकारते हुए कहा था के China भारत में आया ही नहीं.
कहा कुच्छ भी हो, सच सबको पता है.

To use human tragedy for vested political and divisive interests is definitely not what me or even my ilk will ever do. Me and 'my ilk' condemn your despicable behavior unequivocally just as we unite in protest against all acts of violence and every violation of human rights. https://t.co/Hzoc2ePz3M

Other images are circulating on the social platforms that clearly show the Indian soldiers showing disrespect to the deceased body by walking over him, and then they are claiming that the man had died from the bullets of the Kashmiri militants.

The Jammu Kashmir has been in the lockdown state (with no communication) since August of last year after the BJP government revoke Article 370 and 35-A.
