In the wonderland of GanguDaesh induced by golden juice... ShooperPauerSyndrome is high in them....

Changing the game for China and Pakistan? Wow...

As if Sino-Pak planners and states are stone scultptures.... sitting there watching Ganguz doing their ShooperMagic... funny.

What is coming for daydreaming goden juice addicts is something Hybrid this time. Simple reason: The Global Power Architecture is going to be decided in this area... and neither Pakistan nor China shall allow it to be anything other than what they have planned for a three decades!

Furthermore, that jazz about FATF or IMF can only be played for so long and so far... after a certain limit... it is a different tune.

US congresswoman Rashida Tlaib on Friday called for the communications blockade and curfew restrictions in occupied Kashmir to be lifted to "shed light" on what is happening in the disputed region.
In a statement, Tlaib, who is among a group of progressive US congresswomen known as "the squad", said: "India must afford due process to the thousands of people it has detained without charge, and ensure hospitals have the necessary access to life-saving medicine.
"The United States government should support a United Nations-backed peaceful resolution that restores autonomy and ensures self-determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. We cannot lose sight of the millions of Kashmiri people yearning to live in peace and dignity. "
Since the Indian government repealed Article 370 of its constitution — stripping occupied Kashmir of its special status — a strict lockdown and communications blackout has been imposed in the region. It has now been in place for more than 40 days.

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib

I urge the Indian government to accept responsibility for the human rights violations being carried out, hold the responsible parties accountable, and lift the comms blockade and all curfew restrictions to shed light on what is happening in Jammu and Kashmir.

Tlaib, in her statement, condemned India's decision to revoke the special status of Kashmir as well as the communications blockade.
"While I have deep respect for India and its important relationship with the United States, I condemn the Indian government’s revocation of Articles 370 and 35A, the communications blockade it has imposed, its suppression of life-saving medical care, and the reports of widespread violence, torture, and other human rights violations being carried out in Jammu and Kashmir."

Tlaib is not the only US lawmaker who has condemned India's action in occupied Kashmir. Fellow congresswoman Ilhan Omar had earlier called for "de-escalation" and an "immediate restoration of communication" in occupied Kashmir. Both congresswomen are outspoken political opponents and critics of US President Donald Trump.

Additionally, on Thursday various US senators sent a letter to President Trump expressing concern over the human rights situation in occupied Kashmir and urging him to use his influence for the release of individuals detained after August 5.
Tlaib on Friday said India's "unacceptable actions" in occupied Kashmir strip Kashmiris of their "human dignity, put millions of people in danger and seriously undermine democracy in India and Kashmir".

The Palestinian-American lawmaker added that people shouldn't have to fear "unjust detention, rape, or torture because of who they are and what they believe".

Tlaib said that she had met residents of the US state of Michigan who were unable to call their families in occupied Kashmir to ensure that they were safe.

"A truly unimaginable situation as violence, militarisation, and occupation continues," she said, adding: "Jammu and Kashmir is already one of the most militarised regions on Earth, and India’s recent actions create more instability and heighten the potential for accelerating violence."
Citing reports by the UN and human rights groups, the congresswoman said that the "continued immunity" of members of the Indian military from prosecution for human rights abuses through the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) has remained a "key obstacle to accountability and perpetuates their disproportionate use of force".

"The use of pellet shotguns and tear gas as crowd-control mechanisms has injured and maimed many Kashmiris, including children. Moreover, reports indicate that the Indian government has curtailed access to life-saving medical care for the Kashmiri people, creating shortages of medicine and restricting travel to doctors and pharmacies."

Tlaib noted that according to reports, over 3,000 people have been detained indefinitely without charges.

"Acts of sexual violence and enforced disappearances of civilians, allegedly by Indian security forces, represent serious human rights concerns in Jammu and Kashmir.

"I urge the Indian government to accept responsibility for the human rights violations being carried out in Jammu and Kashmir and hold the responsible parties accountable.

"India and Pakistan both must begin implementing the [UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights] OHCHR recommendations from its 2018 and 2019 reports on the crisis," she added.

European Parliament calls for sanctions on India over Kashmir
BY APP , (LAST UPDATED 5 SECONDS AGO)


ISLAMABAD: Members of the European Parliament on Saturday, taking note of the alarming situation in Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK), has called for trade and travel sanctions on India.

The Co-Chair of Friends of Kashmir Group in the EU Parliament, Richard Corbett, called for utilising all possible means to mount pressure on India to ease the military curfew in Occupied Kashmir. He proposed the imposition of trade sanctions on New Delhi and restrictions on the travel of those involved in committing human rights violations and acts of terrorism in IOK.

Corbett was speaking to a conference jointly organised by Friends of Kashmir Group in the European Parliament and the Jammu-Kashmir Self-Determination Movement in Brussels.

The Friends of Kashmir Group also proposed that a resolution be presented in the EU regarding the situation in the occupied valley. Last month, members of this group visited Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK). During the visit, EU members had a chance to meet the victims of unprovoked attacks from India on the Line of Control and the relatives of those who had lost their lives in these attacks. The group also met a wide range of civil society members including journalists, physicians, teachers, students and lawyers to collect firsthand information about the area.
They called upon the Indian government to provide a similar kind of access in IOK so as to independently verify claims about lack of food, medicines and other items in the Occupied Valley.

Those who spoke at the conference included Anthea McIntyre, Shaffaq Mohammed, John Howarth, Irena Von Weise, Theresa Griffin and Raja Najabat Hussain.

Azad Jammu and Kashmir President Sardar Masood Khan was also present on the occasion and welcomed the decision of the European Parliament to hold a debate on the situation in IOK.

Khan said that the decisions reflected growing concerns in Europe over the deteriorating human rights situation in IOK and warned about the prolonged siege turning into genocide. He said all developments in the occupied territory fit into the definition and criteria of genocide and called for swift action by the international community to intervene and prevent a catastrophe.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had revoked the constitutional autonomy of Occupied Kashmir on August 5 and imposed a military curfew in the Valley, imprisoning thousands of Kashmiris.

US Congress members term Indian siege of Kashmir ‘unacceptable’

Lawmakers call for centrality of Kashmiri voices in determining IOK future

As the communications blockade and curfew imposed in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) enters its second month, members of the US Congress on Saturday hit out at New Delhi for its “unacceptable restrictions.”

The letter addressed to US ambassador in India and Charge d’ Affaires, US Embassy in Islamabad deemed the Indian government’s strong-arm tactics as “a deeply ominous sign that is both incompatible with both democratic and human rights.”

Penned by Ilhan Omar, Raul Grijalva, Andy Levin, James McGovern, Ted Lieu and Alan Lowenthal, the letter calls for the centrality of Kashmiri voices in determining the future of the Himalayan valley.

The lawmakers stated that New Delhi’s actions contravened freedom of expression, assembly and movement.

The elected representatives took note of complaints by Kashmiri-Americans of being unable to contact their loved ones inside IOK.

“The reports we are receiving are harrowing with the allegations including forced disappearances, mass detentions, rape and sexual assault, and the targeted detention of political, economic and social leaders,” the communique read.


The US Congresspeople cited alerts issued by prominent international non-governmental organisations, saying that,”we are deeply concerned that Genocide Watch issued a genocide alert.”

The letter outlines that the International Alliance to End Genocide has identified seven genocide risk factors applying to the situation in the valley with their ten stages in are all far advanced.

The legislators also raised concern over the risk that the Kashmir situation could further fracture relations between nuclear-armed neighbours, Pakistan and India.

“This presents tremendous danger to global peace and a clear security risk for the US, Pakistan and India are both valued allies, crucial to our interests the region, including the Afghan peace process. It is of the utmost importance that we leverage our relationships with their governments to de-escalate the situation.”

US senators urge Trump to act on IOK crisis

They called for the Indian government to lift the communication blockade and allow press to access the area.

“We strongly urge India to release all those arbitrarily detained,” the letter stated, urging an impartial probe into human right violations in IOK.

Earlier, a group of US senators had pressed President Donald Trump to urge Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to end the humanitarian crisis in IOK.

Screams in the night in Indian Kashmir

The soldiers came after midnight, Abid Khan says, his hands trembling, one of around two dozen young men in just one part of Kashmir who say they have been tortured by the Indian army.

The alleged abuse, residents say, is aimed at creating a climate of fear after India stripped the long-restive, blood-soaked Himalayan region of its autonomy on August 5.

Khan, 26, from Hirpora village in Shopian district, says he was dragged out and blindfolded along with his brother, who has learning difficulties, on August 14. "They gave electric shocks to my brother right on the road outside. I heard him scream painfully," Khan told AFP, showing marks on his arms, legs and buttocks.

Once inside the nearby Chowgam army camp, Khan said soldiers stripped him naked, tied up his legs and wrists, suspended him and beat him with rods. The camp major, Khan said, accused him of inviting Riyaz Naikoo from Hizbul Mujahideen -- one of several militant groups fighting Indian rule -- to his recent marriage.

An uprising in Indian Kashmir -- backed New Delhi says by Pakistan which since 1947 has controlled the other part of the region -- has killed tens of thousands since 1989, mostly civilians.

"I kept repeating that was not true," Khan said. "Then they gave me electric shocks again on my genitals and wounds. One of them said 'I will make you impotent'." After being released at dawn and barely able to stand, Khan says he kept vomiting for 10 days and only managed to start moving around again after 20 days. "I can't eat properly anymore," he said. "I don't go into the room my wife sleeps in anymore... It's better to die with a bullet than undergo such torture."

- 'People-friendly' -

New Delhi says its Kashmir lockdown since last month, with mobile service and the internet still snapped in most areas, is to prevent "terrorists" backed by Islamabad from stirring up trouble. India's national security advisor has denied that the military has committed any atrocities, a statement echoed by Colonel Rajesh Kalia, an army spokesman in Kashmir. "All counter-terrorist operations are conducted in the most professional and people-friendly manner. Allegations of manhandling levelled against the army are completely baseless," Kalia told AFP.

But people in Hirpora say they often hear screams from the army camp at night.
Three other villagers told AFP they were also tortured. In total, around two dozen young men in the villages of Shopian told similar stories.


"The army is making examples of two or three young men from each village," said one resident of Shopian who has compiled a list.
The pattern is often of soldiers raiding homes, taking identity cards and mobiles and telling young men to report to the camps to retrieve them.

One 21-year-old, who declined to be named but shared with AFP photos of his wounds, said he has reported to the Pahnoo camp three times since August 27 and was abused each time. An officer accused of him of giving food to rebels and then offered him money for information, he said. Another time, he was grilled about a former classmate who is now a militant. "They gave me electric shocks inside a dark room for about two hours," the man said, showing scars on his forearm.

- 'Come back with names' -

Obaid Khan, also 21, from Gugloora village said he had to go to the same camp to retrieve his ID and phone on August 26.

"Eight soldiers kept beating me with rods for a long time. Before they let me go, they asked me to come back with names of stone throwers in my village," he said, referring to protesters who clash with security forces.


Sajjad Hyder Khan, a local official in Pinjoora village told AFP he has seen a list of 1,800 people detained by police and soldiers from Shopian alone, one of the four districts in the southern Kashmir Valley.

Not far from his home in Shopian town, five soldiers in black with "COMMANDO" on their sleeves and carrying assault rifles were going house to house, seeking details of residents.

There was a time when Imran Khan was against the war with TTP and earned him self the title of Taliban Khan.

Pakistans capitulation to Indian hegemony is not surprising as India has invested heavily in politics in Pakistan with the current ruling party just a mere continuation of policy.

India Prime Minister Modi faces Houston federal lawsuit for alleged human rights abuses in Kashmir
Gabrielle Banks
Sep. 19, 2019

A pair of Kashmiri citizens sued the prime minister of India in federal court Thursday ahead of his much-anticipated arrival in Houston, alleging that his unilateral annexation Aug. 5 of their homeland caused the detention, disappearance and deaths of their loved amid ongoing repression.

The region, in the foothills of the Himalayas, has been a subject of fevered dispute between India and Pakistan since partition in 1947. In August, Modi withdrew Kashmir’s special status, a radical shift that intensified conflict in the Muslim-majority state and heightened tensions with Pakistan. The group behind the lawsuit says the annexation violated international law.

During the G7 Summit, Modi declined President Donald Trump’s offer to mediate a settlement between India and Pakistan over the Kashmir region. Some in the international human rights community have criticized Trump’s silence about the Kashmir upheaval as well as the president’s plan to glad hand with him in NRG Stadium in Houston.

Human rights protesters are expected to gather outside the stadium in great numbers for a counter-event of their own.
