This report was written by Patricia Gossman, senior researcher with the Asia Division of Human Rights Watch. It is based on research undertaken in Kashmir by a consultant to Human Rights Watch in October 1998. The report was edited by Sidney Jones, executive director of the Asia Division of Human Rights Watch, Dinah PoKempner, deputy counsel for Human Rights Watch, and Cynthia Brown, program director for Human Rights Watch. Tom Kellogg and Liz Weiss, associates for the Asia Division, prepared the final manuscript.

We are very grateful to all those in Kashmir who spoke with us and who assisted us in interviewing individuals and families and gathering documentation for this report, some of whom undertook risks to themselves in order to do so.
