Watch | Documentary From Kashmir Shows Forced Labour Is Prevalent Even Today

Shafkat Raina talks about the history of forced labour in Kashmir.

Kashmiri filmmaker Shafkat Raina talks about his latest documentary, Forced Labour Under the Largest Democracy. The film is a journey into the history of forced labour in Kashmir.

In this video, Raina explains how forced labour first started in Kashmir under Dogra rule and even though it is a gross human rights violation, it continues to be prevalent even today. He points out the various clauses in the Indian constitution that say forced labour is illegal, yet the state and the army remain unanswerable.
