Indian brutalities in occupied Kashmir has been increased after Pulawma attack, which had killed more than 40 Indian troops. The Amnesty International (AI) has strongly condemned the assault on Kashmiri people after the suicide attack and urged the Indian government to ensure safety and security of Kashmiri people.
“The Government of India (GoI) and Kashmir government must ensure that ordinary Kashmiri women and men do not face targeted attacks, harassment and arbitrary arrests following the killing of 40 security personnel in Kashmir by a suicide car bomber,” the AI stated. “We are at a dangerous moment, and authorities must do everything they can to uphold the rule of law,” said Aakar Patel, head of Amnesty India. “Ordinary Kashmiris across India who are only seeking to improve their lives should not be singled out for violence simply because of where they come from.”
“The mobs who use patriotism as an excuse to hound Kashmiris out of their homes, hostels and shops are corroding the basic values of the constitution of India. Authorities must investigate all allegations of threats and violence, and bring those responsible to justice,” he said.
“The Home Ministry has taken the right step by asking state governments to ensure the safety and security of all Kashmiris. Authorities must make sure that this situation does not deteriorate further,” he added.
