Kashmir - Scars of Pellet Gun, compiled and written by Mannan Bukhari, is about the horror caused by the use of Pellet Gun in Kashmir. After the worldwide acrimony over the high number of fatalities during protests in 2008, 2009, and 2010, pellet gun was introduced in Kashmir as a "nonlethal" alternative to bullets. But though the government introduced it as a nonlethal alternative to minimize the damage to life, however, it failed to produce the desired results and proved deadly at many times, leading to deaths and fatal injuries. This new weapon not only killed people but affected the physical as well as the psychological persona of the victims in such a manner so as to make them and their families suffer for the whole life. This volume deals with the pain and pangs of the victims and its overall impact on their families and the society in general.

The significance of this book "Kashmir Scars of Pellet Gun", lies in collection and collating of data acquired through RTI, medical practitioner's experiences and observations on pellet caused injuries and fatalities, stories of some of the survivors, accounts of family members and others that recalls real life happenings as they unfold and their aftermath.
