HRLN Jammu & Kashmir Unit is located in Srinagar and also holds a sub-unit in the Pulwama district. The unit was established in 2006 to respond to grave human rights violations being committed on Kashmiris in the form of illegal detentions, custodial disappearances and other similar acts of State repression. There was dire need for an organisation that could challenge the actions of the State agencies in the courts. Our office stepped forward to fill that gap. The mission is to provide legal aid to such victims, educate people about their rights and introduce them to favourable legislations that can be used as tools to attain publicly available benefits.

While the J&K team addresses all issues across HRLN’s Initiatives, it is particularly passionate about conflict-related human rights abuses given the socio-political situation in Kashmir. To this end, HRLN J&K provides legal aid and counseling, trainings, holding workshops

and meetings and campaigns, filing cases in high court and subordinate courts and addressing issues related to civil and political rights service matters.

Having committed itself to provide free legal aid to victims of human rights violations, HRLN J&K has since its inception filed over 150 cases on behalf of victims in the courts and a majority of them have received favourable orders. Our office is seen as a place where victims can go for redressal of their problems, seeking legal support. The office has been instrumental in filing various PILs on diverse subjects, including on implementation of the Jammu & Kashmir Disability Act, bio-medical waste, healthcare, and establishing rehabilitation centres for drug addicts. The results yielded better healthcare facilities, improved disposal of bio-medical waste, accessibility to state public buildings for disabled persons and three percent reservation in jobs for them.
