HR abuses in IIOJK dwarf what was witnessed in Bosnia and East Timor: Dr Fai

Washington, DC. March 23 (KMS): The Chairman of Washington-based World Forum for Peace & Justice, Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai, has said that the scale of gripping wrongdoing in Kashmir dwarfs what was witnessed in Bosnia and East Timor prior to international intervention, yet the world powers have watched the people of Kashmir suffer like spectators at the Roman Coliseum.

Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai was commenting on a report released by the US State Department on human rights practices in which it documented the grave human rights violations by Indian troops in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Dr Fai in a statement issued in Washington said that complacency of the world power gives at least the impression that Kashmiri lives and hopes are worth less than those of others.

This report, he said, at least takes the veil of secrecy off of India’s crimes against humanity. Perhaps now the United Nations can share the outrage felt by the people of Kashmir, he added.

Dr Fai warned that “Human rights will continue to be violated as long as political and civilian killings continue unabated, torture and rape remain widespread, civil liberties are suspended, and international human rights groups and United Nations Thematic Rapporteurs are prohibited from gaining access to Kashmir.”

He urged the Biden Administration to insist on transparency in Kashmir to build moral suasion against the massive and systematic human rights violations there perpetrated by Indian occupation forces with impunity.
