Paradise of Kashmir washed in blood every day: Altaf wani

Geneva:(Parliament Times) Deputy chief Jammu Kashmir National Front Altaf Hussain wani addressing to 39th session United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) . Kashmir is paradise on earth. It is washed in blood every day. The voices of innocent people are being suppressed through bullets and pellets. Indian Army’s large-scale deployment has led to atrocities against the people of Jammu & Kashmir. Indian soldiers have been found involved in killing of unarmed civilian protesters during public funerals, use of excessive force and use of munitions of riot control beyond the established international standards. This is documented in detail in the first ever report of the Office of the High Commissioner on Kashmir, released on 14 June 2018.
The report has established that the right to self-determination of people of Jammu and Kashmir is protected under international law.
The report asked this Council to establish a Commission of Inquiry (COI) to investigate past and ongoing human rights violations perpetuated by Indian occupation forces.
Mr. Wani addressing to session told him,
In any responsible democracy, such a damning report would have initiated a debate on improving the state’s human rights record. But the Government of India not only rejected it but intensified military operations against a popular and peaceful movement, killing 35 Kashmiris after 14 June, the day UN report was released.
It was expected this Council will hold a special session to discuss the OHCHR report, but unfortunately I have to say the civilized world has sewed its lips on the violations in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir and allowed India to continue its state barbarism.
Against all odds, the people of Jammu and Kashmir continue to pin high hopes on this august forum to come to their rescue. I urge this Council to end silence and join OHCHR to investigate rights violations in Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir.
