UN EXPERT STATEMENT ON IIOJK AHEAD OF G20 MEETING

UN Special Rapporteur Fernand de Varennes has exposed the nefarious designs of the Modi led fascist Indian government to host G-20 summit in IIOJK. According to de Varennes, G-20 is unwittingly providing a veneer of support to a facade of normalcy at a time when massive human rights violations, illegal and arbitrary arrests, political persecutions, restrictions and even suppression of free media and human rights defenders continue to escalate.

UN Rapporteur described the massive human rights violations including as torture, extrajudicial killings, denial of political participation rights of Kashmiri Muslims and minorities, following the suspension of democratic rights and local elections with direct rule from New Delhi on 06 August 2019. “Human right violation has risen dramatically in IIOJK since 2019 when Indian government revoked the special status of the region”. Fernand de Varennes said that holding a G20 meeting in occupied Jammu and Kashmir while massive human rights violations are ongoing is lending support to attempts by India to normalize the brutal and repressive denial of democratic and other rights of Kashmiri Muslims and minorities. 

The Independent expert noted that there have been reports of significant numbers of Hindus from outside the region moving into the region so that dramatic demographic charges are under way in Jammu and Kashmir to overwhelm native Kashmiris in their own land. “In 2021, UN independence experts transmitted a communication to Indian government and expressed grave concerns over the loss of political autonomy and the implementation of the new domicile rules which could alter the demographic composition of the former state Jammu and Kashmir.

” Modi-led fascist Indian regime is maliciously hosting the G20 meeting of the working group on tourism from 22 May – 24 May in Srinagar to mislead the world about the prevailing grave human rights situation in IIOJK and to legitimize its illegal unilateral actions of 05th August 2019.
