Indian colonial policy in Kashmir is a global threat
-- Nasir Khan, Oct. 1, 2019
Pakistani PM Imran Khan's words of warning in the UNGA were not a threat to anyone, but a warning against the great threat that India has unleashed in Kashmir by its military terror by encapsulating over 8 million Kashmiris into a big prison, by cutting them off from any contact with the outside world or with each other. Such savagery the world has not seen over such a large population.
As I have suggested a few times before about the present large-scale state terror and the incredible cruelty in Kashmir that India has started with fresh vigor is to advance the objectives of the Hindutva ideology of extremist fanaticism that targets and discriminates against the religious and marginalized minorities within the Indian state.
The course followed by India violates the fundamental principles of the United Nations Charter, international law and international norms dealing with subjugated or colonized population.
There is only one sane way for the Indian government in the present inferno that India has created in Kashmir, and that is to reverse its toxic policy it imposed on the Kashmiris on 5 August 2019, restore the autonomous status of Jammu and Kashmir, and then enter into serious negotiations with Kashmiris and Pakistan under the direction of the United Nation with a view to end the old conflict according to the wishes of the people of Kashmir.
There are three parties to the conflict, the people of Kashmir, India and Pakistan. The fate of Kashmir and Kashmiris cannot be decided by the Indian occupation army and its barbaric treatment of the people of Kashmir, but only by the people of Kashmir.
