Renowned Indian human rights activist and civil society member, Gautum Navlakha has denounced the clampdown in occupied Kashmir on Burhan Wani’s anniversary and said India has neither intention nor capability to resolve the Kashmir dispute.
According to media sources, Gautum Navlakha in a media interview in New Delhi said that from ministers to generals, the language of force was used to cow down the people of Kashmir. He said India is eager to suppress the sentiments of people of Kashmir by force and it has been encouraging its military to go for a kill in every nook and cranny of the Valley. He said morally India has no locus standi on Kashmir. It is ruling the territory through its military power where soldiers are free to operate at will. The way it restricted and crushed the people on Burhan’s anniversary speaks volumes of its sinister designs, he added. He also criticized the international community and world human rights organizations for what he termed as criminal silence and failure to hold India accountable for its crimes in Kashmir.
