Human rights abuses alarming in IHK, says us HR body
| Geneva, March 28 (KMS): International Human Rights Association of American Minorities has said that in Indian–held Kashmir, Indian forces routinely abuse the rights of innocent Kashmiris including jail without trial and illegal and arbitrary detentions. |
Tahira Jaleen Khan of the Association, while speaking at the session of the United Nations Human Rights Council here, said that the absence of internal checks and the silence of the international conscience had only served to worsen the agony of the Kashmiris.
Tahira noted that the curse had reached to the levels where even the Indian national media had to report on the severity of the situation. The Association called on the UN HR Council to allow a Special Rapporteur to visit Indian held Kashmir to examine the situation.
