Geneva: During the 54th Session of United Nations Human Rights Council, Kashmiri representative Syed Faiz Naqshbandi met Minelik Alemu, permanent representative of the Federal Republic of Ethiopia to the United Nations in Geneva, and apprised him of the grim situation in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
Syed Faiz Naqshbandi informed Minelik Alemu that India was systematically changing the demography of the occupied territory. Jammu and Kashmir is a UN-recognized disputed territory and Kashmiris are demanding implementation of the UN resolutions on Kashmir in letter and spirit but the continued Indian occupation of Kashmir has given birth to massive and systematic human rights violations there, he added.
Syed Faiz Naqshbandi told the permanent representative of Ethiopia that over 96,000 men, women and children had been killed by Indian forces, and laws have been framed by Indian authorities that facilitate human rights abuses with impunity.
He told Minelik Alemu that Indian authorities through targeted reprisals and fake encounters had made the life of Kashmiris more miserable. Syed Faiz Naqshbandi also presented documents regarding demographic changes and human rights abuses to him.
