Indian Human rights Violations

66

India once again left red-faced as UNHR expert has accused Modi regime of tacitly allowing incitement to violence against Muslims in a report that documents the state-driven and tolerated hatred, discrimination, and violence against minorities in India. The UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief presented the report to the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council, also denounced the wide-ranging Indian atrocities in occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The report highlight that Indian authorities had failed to address impunity for human rights violations in Kashmir – including extra-judicial killings, enforced disappearances, and rapes and have enacted special laws to impede accountability and obstruct victims’ access to remedies. Likewise, India had increased restrictions on movements of the predominantly Muslim Kashmiri population, already under strict lockdown since the 2019 revocation of Kashmir’s special autonomous status, and sent more troops. The UN report went on to say that Indian armed forces in Kashmir have arrested local politicians, by invoking the Public Safety Act that permits them to imprison someone for up to two years without a charge or trial, following the forces’ dispatch to quell protests and unrest sparked by the Government’s introduction of controversial amendments to the Indian Constitution. The extremist BJP in India is promoting Hindutva ideology and targeting minorities including Muslims, Christians, and Dalits. The minorities are forced to change their religion to Hinduism or leave the country. The world community is well aware of this fact but not taking strict measures in this regard. Pakistan is continuing its efforts at all international forums to expose cruel Indian policies and the Hindutva mindset.
