Pepper Gassing Kashmir

The Los Angeles Times reported in 1995 at least 61 deaths associated with police use of pepper spray since 1990 in the USA. The US Army concluded, in a 1993 Aberdeen Proving Ground study, that pepper spray could cause “mutagenic effects, carcinogenic effects, sensitization, cardiovascular and pulmonary toxicity, neurotoxicity, as well as possible human deaths”. There is a very high risk in using this product on a large and varied population. In Hong Kong, pepper spray is classified as “arms” under the “Laws of Hong Kong“. Chap 238 Firearms and Ammunition Ordinance. 

Without a valid license from the Hong Kong Police Force, it is a crime to possess and can result in afine of $100,000 and to imprisonment for 14 years.

But here in Kashmir, Indian occupational forces (God damn them) and their stooges in Kashmir have crossed every limit of viciousness and barbarism by using such deadly chemical weapons on innocent Kashmiri protestors. 

Around 150 countries have banned pepper spray under Article I.5 of the Chemical Weapons Convention. The ban came into force after reports emerged in the late 90′s about the deaths and a potential risk for life (deaths) among the persons suffering from illness due to the inhaling of pepper gas.The pepper gas ban has also been followed in almost all of the European countries where its use has been labeled as “inhumane and dangerous.”

(Here it is note worthy that in most of the countries apart from “sickular” India; this pepper gas is either banned or used only against “DOGS & BEARS”. And we Kashmiri have not as much of worth as that of dogs and bears in spectacle of the occupational forces of “sickular” India). Although considered a bit less toxic agent, it has been deadly in some cases, and concerns have been raised about a number of deaths where being pepper sprayed may have been a contributing factor. The Journal of Investigative Ophthalmology…
