Zahid/Khokhar – September 13, 2019

A group of US senators has urged President Donald Trump to help end the on-going India’s clampdown in occupied Kashmir.

Senators Chris Van Hollen, Ben Cardin, Lindsey Graham and Todd Young in a letter to the US President asked him to immediately act to stop the humanitarian crisis in the occupied Kashmir.

Expressing their concern regarding the situation in Indian occupied Kashmir, the lawmakers pressed Donald Trump to ask Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to lift the lockdown and curfew, and release the hundreds of innocent Kashmiris detained   under the controversial Public Safety Act.

The US Senators noted that with each passing day, the situation for the people of Kashmir becomes increasingly difficult. They said Modi should be called upon to restore telecommunication and internet services, lift the lockdown and curfew and release Kashmiris detained pursuant to India’s revocation of Article 370.

They hoped the US can play a constructive role in helping resolve the underlying disputes between the two nuclear powers, Pakistan and India.
