The President drew the attention of the participants to the recent 'Human Rights in Jammu and Kashmir' report released by the British All-Party Parliamentary Kashmir Group (APPKG) and the report published by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OCHRC), which documents gross and consistent human rights violations in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).
The AJK President said that the international community has broken its silence on the human rights situation in IOK, and highlighted the recently released report by the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OCHRC).
Highlighting the three recommendations of the OCHRC report, the President said that people of Kashmir must be allowed to exercise their right to self-determination; India must repeal its two draconian laws - Armed Forces Special Powers Act and the Public Safety Act - which have granted absolute immunity to the Indian occupation forces from any sort of prosecution; and the Human Rights Council must establish a Commission of Inquiry to conduct a comprehensive international investigation into human rights violations in IOK.
