India using internet curbs in Kashmir to hide its ‘illegal’ actions & rights abuses: Pakistan Buy Msj Valium Pill July 16,2020 Geneva (KMS): Pakistan told the UN Human Rights Council that India was using the severe restrictions it imposed on communications in Jammu and Kashmir as a “policy tool” to hide its illegal actions and continued human rights atrocities in the disputed region.

“Today Indian occupied Kashmir represents a classic case where the self-professed largest democracy has defiantly violated longstanding principles of international law, norms and responsible state behaviour,” Ambassador Khalil Hashmi said during an interactive debate in the Geneva-based, 47-member Council. The Council was debating a report of UN Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance. E.

“Mobs affiliated with the BJP have, since 2015, killed and injured scores of members of religious minorities amid rumours that they traded or killed cows for beef,” Ambassador Hashmi said.

“Left unchecked, these actions can undo the work of peacemakers, and undermine the basis for peaceful coexistence.”

Ambassador Hashmi backed the Special Rapporteur’s call to political leaders and parties to condemn racist hate speech and hold all perpetrators accountable for incitement to hatred and acts of violence.
