Extra-Judicial Killings in Kashmir


The Himalayan region traversing India and Pakistan is claimed by both entirely and has carried the nuclear-armed nations to open conflicts a few times since the autonomy from Britain in 1947. Violence in Kashmir has left more than 40,000 dead since a rebel uprising insurgency to Indian rule touched off in 1989. Denials of basic human rights in illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir union domain are a progressing issue in the northern part of India. The maltreatments range from extrajudicial killings, authorized disappearances, torture, assault, and sexual abuse to political repression and suppression of the freedom of speech. The Indian Army, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Border Security Personnel (BSF), and different separatist militant groups have been charged and considered responsible for committing serious denials of basic freedoms against Kashmiri citizens.
Pakistan has unequivocally condemned the extra-judicial killings of all innocent Kashmiris for the fake encounters by Indian occupation powers in IIOJK. During the year 2020, in their audacious demonstrations of state-sponsored terrorism, the Indian occupation powers martyred more than 300 innocent Kashmiris, including ladies and kids, in “fake encounters” and organized “cordon-and-search” operations. During the same period, 750 Kashmiris were fundamentally injured, while 2,770 honest Kashmiris were arbitrarily detained and 922 houses destroyed as a feature of collective punishment delivered on the Kashmiris.
Even the trigger happy countries do not shoot at a suspect before any investigation but the case is not the same with Indian occupied Kashmir, people including men, women, and children, all get killed by the Indian military for coercive purpose. Hostilities between India and Pakistan have risen ever since the divide of the subcontinent in 1947. However, human rights are still to be assured in the Indian occupied Kashmir. Pakistan has time and again raised the concern of extra-judicial killings in Kashmir internationally. In addition to that, the United Nations has also expressed serious concerns over a large number of killings by Indian security personnel.
