New Delhi, Sep 17: European Parliament based in Strasbourg is expected to hold a debate on Kashmir issue and human rights violations, alleged by Pakistan, in the valley – marking it as second such debate on Kashmir since 2008 by the European Parliament General Assembly, according to The Business Times.

Ahead of the debate scheduled for Tuesday, Azad Kashmir president Masood Khan warned about the pertaining situation in Jammu and Kashmir, and called on European Union (EU) to criticize India’s action of revoking Article 370 that offered special status to J&K.

When asked if Kashmir’s situation has improved since the Indian government led by Prime Minister revoked its “autonomous” status, Khan replied: “Nothing has changed although India might want to give the impression that this is the case.”

“There are hundreds of thousands of Indian soldiers and police in Kashmir that have been given impunity to act against an unarmed civil population,” he said.

Meanwhile, Pakistan was planning to move a framework on Kashmir at the present 42nd meeting of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC), that kicked-off on Sep 9 and is slated to conclude on Sep 27 in Geneva. Pakistan was given Sep 19 as a deadline to deliver a resolution, according to The Print.
