Lahore, 4th January: Federal Minister of Human Rights Dr Shireen Mazari has revealed the abhorrent face of Indian atrocities against women in occupied Kashmir.

“Article 76 says that women shall be confined in separate quarters and shall be under the direct supervision of women. The detainees have the right to be visited by the Red Cross but Indian authorities don’t even provide doctors,” said Mazari.
She added, “Andrabi and two other women with her are unwell but the Indian government is denying her medical assistance.”
Mazari said the Indian government is committing war crimes by moving Kashmiri prisoners to and from Indian jails.
As per reports from Geo News, she referred to Article 8 on war crimes of the Rome Statute of International Criminal Court which states that the ‘transfer, directly or indirectly, by the Occupying Power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies, or the deportation or transfer of all or parts of the population of the occupied territory within or outside this territory’.
The human rights minister claimed that the Indian government was violating international laws. She called upon the international community and local and international human rights organisations to condemn the actions.
