Fallacious, motivated: India rejects UN rights body report on Kashmir

New Delhi, 14 Jun 2018 [Fik/News Sources]: India today rejected the report of United Nations High Commission for Human Rights on "human rights situation in Kashmir".

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) rejected the report and said, "it is fallacious, tendentious and motivated. We question the intent in brining out the report."

"It is a selective compilation of largely motivated unverified information," the MEA added. 

In its first report on human rights in Kashmir the UN tore into both India and Pakistan for violation of rights in Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK). 

MEA said, "The report violates India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The entire state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India. Pakistan is in illegal and forcible occupation of a part of the Indian state through aggression."

The UN report urged Pakistan to end its "misuse” of anti-terror legislation to persecute peaceful activists and quash dissent.

Indian and Pakistani security forces used excessive force in both sides of Kashmir, killing and wounding civilians since 2016, the United Nations said on Thursday and called for an international inquiry into alleged violations.
