The report said that BJP-led Indian government’s August 5, 2019 actions were in brazen violations of the United Nations Security Council resolutions.

The report said that the Modi regime was using draconian measures to stifle the voice of freedom in Kashmir, including the use of probe agencies to terrorize and repress the Kashmiris. “The presence of nearly one million Indian troops has made IIOJK the most militarized zone in the world, with India openly violating international laws by committing gross human rights violations” it said.

The report highlights that the human rights viola-tions in IIOJK are directly connected to the decades-old unresolved Kashmir dispute, adding that despite international calls to probe rights violations, India has disregarded the pleas, leading to a worsening situation.

The report demands immediate action to protect the rights of the Kashmiris and resolve the long-standing Kashmir dispute.

“The world cannot continue to ignore the suffering of the Kashmiri people,” said the report. “It is time for the international community to break its silence and take concrete steps to address the human rights crisis in IIOJK and work towards a peaceful resolution to the Kashmir dispute.”

The BJP-led Indian government has imposed strin-gent measures in the name of security in Islamabad, Kulgam, Shopian, Rajouri and Poonch districts of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir ahead of another round of sham parliamentary elections.

The Islama-bad-Rajouri parliamentary constituency comprising Islamabad, Kulgam and Shopian districts of Kashmir Valley, and Rajouri and Poonch districts of Jammu region will go to polls in the sixth phase on Saturday.

The Modi regime has turned the election in the constituency into a military operation, deploying additional forces’ personnel and enhancing surveillance.

The constituency looks like a war zone, with the Indian army troops and the Special Operations Group of police in all districts.

Meanwhile, the occupation authorities once again disallowed senior APHC leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq from attending Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, today. Anjuman Auqaf Jamia Masjid in a statement in Srinagar said that it was the 4th consecutive Friday that the Mirwaiz had been prevented from conducting prayers at the historic mosque.

Peoples Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti addressing media in south Kashmir’s Bijbehera underscored the need to raise forceful voice against New Delhi’s actions since August 5, 2019 aimed at disempowering the Kashmiri people.
