India needs to step back in Kashmir: HRW
Human Rights Watch said on Tuesday India needs to step back in Kashmir following the revocation of Article-370 by Indian parliament on Monday August 5, 2019.
According to reports of Baaghitv, since the unilateral decision of Modi government in India to revoke the Article 370 and Article 35-A of the Indian constitution to strip the autonomous region, Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) of its special status, the International organization has ratcheted up pressure on the Indian government calling for taking a step-back in the Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK).
Human Rights Watch (HRW) in their latest statement has called on Indian government to ensure justice and accountability for human rights abuses, repeal abusive laws like the Public Safety Act or the Armed Forces Special Powers Act which gives government forces immunity from prosecution.
Its been more than a week since the constitutional amendment sailed through Indian parliament, and the Indian government has blackout all sorts of media from the scenic valley. The communications is halted, the telephone lines are severed and internet is down which is resulting in gross human rights violation in Kashmir by the Indian security forces.
