UN urges Indian Govt. to fully restore rights of Kashmiris


Geneva — UN Human Rights urged Indian authorities to “fully restore the rights” of Kashmiris and that they are “extremely concerned” about Kashmiris being deprived of a wide range of human rights.

Rupert Colville, the spokesperson of UN Human Rights commissioner said, “We are extremely concerned that the population of Indian-Administered Kashmir continues to be deprived of a wide range of human rights and we urge the Indian authorities to unlock the situation and fully restore the rights that are currently being denied.”

Indian Government on August 5 abolished Article 370 and Article 35A in Kashmir, which gave it a special status. Since then, Kashmir has been put under absolute communications blackout for over 69 days.

On October 13, 99% of the Post-paid networks were relaxed, yet a wide range of fundamental rights are deprived.
