CONFLICT IN KASHMIR
EDM #2707
Tabled 04 September 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House expresses huge concern about the revocation of Articles 370 and 35A in Kashmir by the Indian Government, stripping away the right to special status for the people of Kashmir; is extremely alarmed by the road to ethnic cleansing opened up by the ongoing communications blackout and the hundreds of thousands of military personnel placed within the region and especially the reports of grave human rights violations against men, women and children; recognises that these steps ignore UN resolutions on a plebiscite for the Kashmiri people on their right to self-determination and raises tensions with neighbouring Pakistan; and calls upon the UN, its member states and International governments to call upon the Indian government to lift the siege on the Kashmiri people.
