KASHMIR DISPUTE AND INTERNATIONAL RESPONSE


India has a long history of employing fascist tactics to suppress the genuine aspirations of Kashmiris. Indian troops in their unabated acts of state terrorism, martyred 95,917 innocent Kashmiris including 7,215 in custody, widowed 22,939, orphaned 107, 855 and molested 11,245 women since January 1989.

India has introduced coercive measures including new domicile laws to change the demographic structure of IIOJK. These actions are illegal and in blatant violation of UNSC resolutions and international law, including the Fourth Geneva Convention and Security Council Resolution 122.

Pakistan has presented a 131-page dossier detailing a series of atrocities committed by Indian government in IIOJK. Pakistan has shaken India diplomatically as the document has been officially shared with over 100 countries of the world.

Unfortunately, India did not reply to any of the questions asked by UNHRC rapporteurs on human rights violations, and is considered the acceptance of the crimes by Indian government committed in IIOJK.

UN should compel India to allow free access to special procedure mandate holders of the UN Human Rights Council for independent investigations of human rights violations.
