Human rights violations have shown a massive increase in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) since August 5, 2019 when the Modi-led fascist Indian government repealed Kashmir’s special status and imposed military siege in the territory.
As many as 663 innocent Kashmiris fell to Indian bullets, 17993 people were arrested, 2278 injured, 1093 houses destroyed and 125 women were molested by Indian troops since Aug 5, 2019 in IIOJK, said a report released by the KMS, today.
It said systematic human rights violations are being continuously committed with impunity by Indian troops in the occupied territory, adding that several global rights groups have time and again raised alarm about the worsening rights situation.
The report said the Modi regime’s August 5, 2019 actions and thereafter are gross violation of the United Nations Security Council resolutions. India has unleashed a reign of terror against IIOJK’s Muslim population, it lamented.
It deplored that the Kashmiri youth were being killed in fake encounters and in so-called cordon and search operations (CASOs) by Indian troops, adding that 96,095 Kashmiris had been killed since January 1989 to July 2021 in IIOJK.
The report said India claims to be the world’s largest democracy but is shamelessly violating every human rights principle in IIOJK and is putting the whole peace of South Asia at stake.
The world community and international human rights organizations need to take note of the rising rights violations in the territory and settle the lingering dispute so that permanent peace could be established in the region.—KMS
