United Nations human rights body concerned over NRC, Kashmir

During his address, the Pakistani minister repeatedly lied about the situation in Kashmir and kept on distorting facts only to grab the attention of UNHRC members.

But as the world body on human rights gets down to business, the Indian assessment is that Qureshi and Pakistan might have to lower the bar on what they can sell to its domestic audience as a victory.

Michelle Bachelet included India in her specific reference to over 35 countries and mentioned Pakistan only in reference to Kashmir, but made no reference to the human rights situation in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, Balochistan or Gilgit-Baltistan.

He said he had brought the "plea and petition" of the Kashmiri people, "whose inalienable rights are being trampled by India", to the UNHRC and claimed they were "caged by an illegal military occupation".

"What has happened in occupied Jammu and Kashmir is certainly a flashpoint", Ambassador Lodhi said, while noting that the secretary-general and other United Nations officials have made statements in the wake of the ongoing crisis that called for a settlement of the Kashmir dispute. He spoke about detention of political leaders of all hues in Kashmir and said the people have been "caged" there over the past six weeks.

On Jammu and Kashmir, India maintains that it is an internal matter and required no third-party mediation.

On Monday, sources in intelligence agencies have told that Pakistan-based terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) is planning to carry out attacks on camps of Indian Army and other security forces in Jammu and Kashmir.

Her remarks were welcomed by Qureshi and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who called on the UNHRC to set up an independent investigation commission to probe alleged rights abuses.

The situation on the ground, she said, was brewing into a full-fledged humanitarian crisis, the true extent of which will only be known once the draconian restrictions are lifted. "If the life has returned to normalcy, then I say, why don't they allow you, the worldwide media, why don't they allow the global organisations, the NGOs, civil society organisations to go into the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir and see for themselves what the reality is". "We must act decisively and with conviction", he said.

Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Tuesday where he apprised him regarding the risks of millions of lives of the people living in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir amid curfew continued since more than a month.

"The connection between India and Pakistan is" less heated" today than that which was just two weeks past, United States President Donald Trump said, reiterating his deal to assist both South-Asian neighbours only when the two of them desire.

The government last month chose to abrogate provisions of Article 370 in J&K, and bifurcate it into two Union Territories, evoking strong reactions from Pakistan with its Prime Minister Imran Khan making provocative anti-India rhetoric, which India dubbed as "irresponsible statements".
