Dear readers,

This is our July 2018 issue – focusing on the more than three years of Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) coalition government. In our cover story, we have produced a timeline of names and details of all the civilians killed during this period. Our prime focus is also on Burhan Muzaffer Wani, 22, a popular militant commander, who was killed on 8 July 2016 and changed the region’s political situation. Mark Mistry, a British freelance journalist writes about Syed Shujaat Bukhari, a veteran journalist, who was shot dead by unknown gunmen in June. The aim of this issue is to take readers back to the last three years and show what has happened in Kashmir, and how it has only changed for worse.
