Pakistan, 50 countries demand action to end Kashmir humanitarian crisis

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Tuesday said the UN Human Rights Council (UNHCR) should urge India to immediately lift the curfew and reverse the clampdown and communications blackout in occupied Kashmir.
Addressing the 42nd session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva on Tuesday, Qureshi said India should also be asked to stop the use of pellet guns, end the bloodshed and restore fundamental freedoms and liberties.
“India should release political prisoners, stop targeting human rights defenders and fulfil obligations under the UN Security Council resolutions and various human rights instruments,” Qureshi said, adding the Indian draconian emergency laws in occupied Kashmir cannot be allowed to stand.
The foreign minister urged the human rights council to take steps to bring to justice the perpetrators of human rights violations of the innocent Kashmiris and in this context constitute a commission of inquiry as recommended by the office of the UNHCR.
Qureshi further said if India has nothing to hide, it should allow unhindered access to the Commission of Inquiry.
“Pakistan stands ready to allow access to the proposed Commission of Inquiry, or other mechanisms, on our side of the Line of Control; together with similar access to occupied Kashmir,” he asserted.
The foreign minister urged focused discussions on the two Reports of UNHCR, in the Human Rights Council (LoC) and a unanimous decision by this House to implement their recommendations made to India, Pakistan and foremost to the Human Rights Council.
“The human rights council should authorise the Office of the High Commissioner and the Human Rights Council's Special Procedures Mandate Holders, to monitor and report on India's human rights violations in IoK; and regularly update this Council,” Qureshi said.
He added India should be called upon to allow unhindered access to human rights organisations and international media to the occupied valley.
Voicing serious concerns over the situation in occupied Kashmir, Qureshi said we must not remain indifferent to the tragedy that is unfolding before our eyes. “We must act decisively and with conviction,” he noted.
The foreign minister said the people of occupied Kashmir have been waiting for their right to self-determination for seven decades.
Drawing attention towards the prevailing situation in occupied Kashmir, the foreign minister said the basic and inalienable human rights of Kashmiri people are being trampled with impunity by India. “The people of this occupied land are suffering systematic, and serial, violations of their fundamental freedoms,” he said.
“India has transformed occupied Kashmir into the largest prison on this planet, with virtually no access to basic amenities and means of communication over the last six weeks. Shops are running short of supplies, hospitals of life-saving medicines, and the sick and wounded — many of them due to the direct and indiscriminate use of force by the Indian occupation forces — are unable to access even emergency health services,” Qureshi added.
The foreign minister said over 6,000 people, political workers, activists, students and professionals have been arrested, without due process of law. “Many of them have been forcibly shipped to jails all over India, under draconian laws operative in the valley,” Qureshi said.
