Srinagar, June 28, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, member of the so-called Kashmir Assembly, Engineer Abdur Rasheed has said that rejecting the United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) report on Kashmir by India does not make a sense. Engineer Rasheed in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “The way Indian government is rejecting the revelations made in the UNHRC report does not make a sense as facts speak themselves. If Army claims to be so clean on human rights, one has a right to ask why the army has been blocking justice in Pathribal, forced labour, forced disappearances, Kunan Poshpora, and likewise incidents.
Respecting human rights of Kashmiris and punishing human rights offenders is not a favour to Kashmiris but the duty of all parties. By outrightly rejecting UNHRC report New Delhi is running away from harsh realities and if no violations have taken place, one has a right to know how nearly one lac. people lost their lives.” Er Rasheed added that both India and Pakistan should allow neutral and credible organizations to visit their respective sides and whatsoever observations and recommendations such organizations make from time to time need to be taken seriously.
