NEW DELHI: Amnesty In­ter­na­tional In­dia wel­comed the UN re­port say­ing, “This wel­come re­port reaf­firms the de­mands of var­i­ous do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional hu­man rights or­gan­i­sa­tions for In­dian and Pak­istani au­thor­i­ties to de­liver jus­tice for past and on­go­ing hu­man rights abuses, and pro­tect the free­doms of all peo­ple in Kashmir.”

“Both In­dia and Pak­istan should ful­fil their obli­ga­tions un­der in­ter­na­tional hu­man rights law and end the at­mo­sphere of im­punity in Kashmir by con­duct­ing ef­fec­tive, im­par­tial, and in­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tions into hu­man rights abuses by armed forces. They should also end the use of re­pres­sive laws and re­spect the right of all peo­ple to peace­fully ex­press their opin­ions,” said Aakar Patel, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, Amnesty In­ter­na­tional In­dia.
