UN has released its first of a kind report, highlighting the severe violation of human rights at the Indo-Pak border in the Kashmir region. The report claims that around 145 civilians were killed by the national security forces while the number killed by armed groups was around 20, a staggering contrast.

This report covers,“ the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir (consisting of the Kashmir Valley, the Jammu and Ladakh regions) and Pakistan-Administered Kashmir (Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan).”Aimed at highlighting the use of excessive force in the area which led to the numerous casualties the report discussed the areas where the civil nature and structure is crumbling.

India responded by calling the report as “fallacious, tendentious and motivated.” the Ministry of External Affairs stated that it cannot accept the report as individual prejudices are being allowed to undermine the credibility of the UN institution.

“India rejects the report. It is fallacious, tendentious and motivated. We question the intent in bringing out such a report,” the MEA said.

The Congress on Thursday supported the government’s stand in dismissing the UN report on human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir, terming it a “prejudiced attempt” by vested interests to hurt India’s sovereignty and national interests.

“How does the report justify terrorism by self-styled militants of JeM and Hizbul Mujahideen? Should the UN overlook the state-sponsored terrorism being exported on Indian soil by Pakistan?” Surjewala asked on Twitter.

The report was a defining stance on the civilian structure in the Kashmir region was rejected vehemently by India and it seems that both the giant national parties have teamed together to criticize such an allegation against India. It violated the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, it said.
