India Rejects UN Report On Jammu and Kashmir As "Fallacious, Motivated"

The report's main focus is on IHK, the FO noted, and the "contents, scale and the narrative of killings, maiming, abuse and impunity articulated in the report is a reaffirmation of what Pakistan has long highlighted for the worldwide community".

The MEA, however, asserted that "the report violates India's sovereignty and territorial integrity".

Raveesh Kumar, spokesman for India's Ministry of External Affairs, rejected the report, calling it "fallacious, tendentious and motivated" and a "selective compilation of largely unverified information". Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep.

The 49-page report, the first ever issued by the United Nations on the human rights situation in Indian-Administered and Pakistan-Administered Kashmir, details human rights violations and abuses on both sides of the Line of Control, and highlights a situation of chronic impunity for violations committed by security forces. This stern statement from Ministry of External Affairs came hours after the United Nations report which came down hard on both India and Pakistan.

The main focus of the report is the human rights situation in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir from July 2016 - when large and unprecedented demonstrations erupted after Indian security forces killed the leader of an armed group - to April 2018. Alleged sites of mass graves in the Kashmir Valley and Jammu should be investigated, he said. The report said, "the people on both sides of the Line of Control have been detrimentally impacted and suffer from limitations or denial of a range of human rights".

The findings, described as the first-of-its-kind for Kashmir, come after months of deadly clashes along the border that divides Kashmir into zones of Indian occupation and Pakistani control.

Macron Calls Trump Incoherent After He Refuses To Sign G7 Statement
The decision to back out of the communique was "in large part" because of the upcoming North Korea summit, Kudlow said. Trump swiftly responded to Trudeau by upending the communiqué in a series of tweets Saturday evening.

There can't be any comparison between Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir as "the former has a democratically elected government while the latter has seen a Pakistani diplomat arbitrarily appointed as its head", Indian officials have said. The report violates India's sovereignty and integrity.it is disturbing that those behind this report have chosen to describe internationally designated and United Nations -proscribed terrorist entities as "armed groups" and terrorists as "leaders".

The 49-page report published by the UN Human Rights Office urged Pakistan to end the misuse of its anti-terror legislation that is used in prosecuting those engaging in peaceful political activities or expressing dissent. There are no entities such as "Azad Jammu and Kashmir" and "Gilgit-Baltistan". We have repeatedly called upon Pakistan to vacate the occupied territories.

"This proposal is consistent with Pakistan's several calls to this effect since 2016, even as India has continued to ignore legitimate demands for probe into gross and systematic violations, including pellet guns, excessive use of force, arbitrary arrest and detentions as well as continued sexual violence as part of overall impunity enjoyed by Indian security forces", the handout read. "This undermines the UN-led consensus on zero-tolerance to terrorism", he said.

U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein called for maximum restraint and denounced the lack of prosecutions of Indian forces in Jammu and Kashmir due to a 1990 law giving them what he called "virtual immunity".

The rights office also said restrictions on the freedom of expression and assembly make it hard to get information about conditions in PoK.
