EDM #128
Tabled 30 January 2020
2019-21 Session
That this House commemorates with deep sadness the 30th anniversary of the attack in January 1990 by cross-border Islamic militants on the population of Jammu and Kashmir; expresses its condolences to the families and friends of all those who were killed, raped and injured in that massacre and condemns the desecration of the holiest sites in Jammu and Kashmir; expresses its concern that Kashmiris who fled to save life and limb have still not secured justice for the atrocities committed against them; deplores those sponsoring cross-border terrorist attacks and demands they cease immediately; notes that the international principle of the responsibility to protect obliges individual states and the international community to take effective measures to prevent the commission of genocide and crimes against humanity as seen against the Kashmiri Hindu community; and commends the resilience and courage shown by the surviving members of Kashmiri Hindu community that did not resort to picking up guns but instead pursued education and aspiration and today make a huge contribution to the UK.
