Stop the oppression and free the people of Kashmir

Immediate intervention required for  the  United Nations, United States, United kingdom. NATO in the Kashmir crisis The situation is URGENT. VIOLATION of human rights, breaking of democracy, ethnic minority cleansing attempt. Killings | Torture | Rape & Gang Rape | Excessive use of force | Illegal Draconian Laws | Enforced Disappearances | Use of Pellet – Firing Shot Guns | Arbitrary Arrests and Detention including Minors “It is a conflict that has robbed millions of their basic human rights and continues to this day to inflict untold suffering.”   India has revoked occupied Kashmir's special autonomy through a rushed presidential decree Article 370 of the Indian constitution was scrapped on Monday 5 August 2019. The people of Kashmir Valley are under COMPLETE lockdown. They are forbidden to venture outside their homes thereby preventing them from access to food, medicines or freedom of movement in violation of the Geneva Convention. The current crisis is the backdrop to India’s unilateral efforts at changing the legal status of Kashmir by abrogating Article 35A and Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, laws that guarantee a special status to Kashmir. The current right wing BJP Government under Narendra Modi vowed to scrap the two articles that prevent non-state subjects from buying property and settling in Kashmir. With Article 370 scrapped on Monday 5 August 2019, tensions are heightened. This move to end this status will certainly lead to a demographic change in Jammu and Kashmir, a complete genecide. It is creating a state of unrest in the Valley and other regions, and possible war between India and Pakistan. There is unprecedented military buildup by the Indian government in Kashmir, and renewed military aggression on the Line of Control. In violation of the Geneva Convention, last week India is reported to have used cluster bombs in its attacks on civilian population on the Line of Control. Such acts make a nuclear war in South Asia a reality that demands immediate attention of the world community. All communication links with the Kashmir Valley have been shut down by the Indian government and its people are in complete isolationSecurity personnel stand guard during restrictions, in Jammu. Thanks!
