Islamabad, December 09, 2020 (PPI-OT): On International Day of Victims of Genocide (09 December), we urge the international community to stop impending genocide and ethnic cleansing in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) which is aimed at converting the Muslim majority in IIOJK into a minority. Since 1990, India’s occupation army has martyred over 100,000 thousand Kashmiris, widowed 22,000 women, orphaned 108,000 children and raped more than 11,000 women. Recent Statement by Genocide Watch regarding another impending genocide in IIOJK only reaffirms such fears.
Today, the Indian Muslims face an existential threat. Over the years, they have been victims of the most shocking atrocity crimes at the hands of BJP-RSS’ “Sangh Parivar”, in which uncounted thousands have been murdered in repeated pogroms such as the ones in Mumbai (1993), Gujrat (2002) and Delhi (2020). On this day, we call upon the international community to prosecute the Indian civil and military personnel involved in the state terrorism, war crimes and crimes against humanity in IIOJK and against Indian Muslims.
