Malaysian Consultative Council of Islamic Organizations (MAPIM) has called upon the UN to intervene without any delay to stop inhumanity and gross violation of international laws by India on Kashmiris.

According to a press release, the Malaysian Council said the worsening human rights violation and forced demographic change to alter Kashmir from a Muslim majority populated territory to a Hindu dominated region is a dangerous path. A regional instability will be an imminent outcome if this is not checked.

Voicing serious concerns over Indian atrocities on Kashmiris, the Council stressed that India must be held fully responsible for the crimes being committed against humanity in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir. It said India has no right to abrogate Kashmir’s autonomous status and it must refer to the UNSC resolution for a plebiscite to be conducted for the people of Kashmir to decide their own future.

The Malaysian Consultative Council of Islamic Organizations demanded that the concocted charges against Asiya Andrabi must be dropped and she should be released unconditionally. It called upon the UN to intervene in the case of Asiya Andrabi and her associates to ensure protection of their human rights.

We call the UN to intervene without delay. UN has the obligation to stop this inhumanity and gross violation of international laws by India on Kashmiris. The worsening human rights violation and forced demographic change to alter Kashmir from a Muslim majority populated territory to a Hindu dominated region is a dangerous path. A regional instability will be an imminent outcome if this is not checked. The human rights violation are visible and well recorded. The brutality and injustice is glaring enough for the UN to step in. India’s atrocities if not halted will be a legitimate retaliation from the oppressed. The Indian troops have acted beyond the rules of the standard international law to claim that India was to weed out so called terrorists. Under the pretext of the so called crackdown operation to take down terrorists, India is executing extra judicial murders, torture in custody and detention without access to legal recourse.

We register our protest against the Indian authorities that has launched an operation to crush voices of dissent, curtail rights to demand for freedom and human rights of the Kashmiris. The extrajudicial killings and collective punishment by barbaric raids on homes and setting ablaze houses by Indian troops cannot be allowed to persist and those responsible go unpunished. India must be held fully responsible to the atrocities and crimes against humanity in the IiOJ&K . Its appetite to lunch a full genocide operation in the disputed territory is emboldened by the support it received from israel and the US. We take note seriously the impending sentencing of Ms Aasiya Andrabi, leader of the largest Kashmir women’s human rights organization , Dukhtaran-e-Millat , who has been fasely charged without due course of the law. Since her detention in 1992 and incarcerated for 15 years, the Indian court has denied her for a proper legal counselor.

Her detention now in Tihar jail in New Delhi is waiting for a conviction on the 18th January 2021. Dubious charges under the draconian laws of India on Ms Andrabi, her husband and her associates are an affront to international standards of criminal proceedings. The posibility of her been sentenced to death by the Indian court is a imminent. The international community must not remain silence on the fate of the victims of the Indian ruthless oppression. Apprehending political dissent amongst Kashmir activists like Ms Andrabi and her associates reflects the brute force of the Indian occupiers. The judiciary system of India is in question. Cases of trials of political dissenters , is now under the influence and direction of the BJP-RSS regime.

Meanwhile, Pakistan has urged the European Union to seek immediate release of Asiya Andrabi, a Kashmiri human rights activist and political leader, imprisoned in the notorious Tihar Jail in India.

In a letter addressed to the chairs of the political groups in the European Parliament and EU Special Representative for Human Rights, Ambassador Zaheer A. Janjua urged the EU to play its role to stop imminent risk of conviction of Andrabi by a sham court that would take up the case on January 18.
