British investigators report serious war crimes of India in IIOJK

The Legal Forum for Kashmir (LFK) and the Britain-based investigating unit, the Stoke White Investigations jointly issued the report at the Islamabad Press Club.

ISLAMABAD: The Stoke White Investigations (SWI) has reported Indian war-crimes in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir in 2020-21. In its report released on August 24, SWI said that there were 450 incidents of violence which expose Indian brutalities and war crimes against the Kashmiri people.

The report, titled ‘India Silencing Journalism and Human Rights in Kashmir’ also noted 100 cases of enforced disappearances in IIOJK. The report also observed 30 cases of sexual violence and 1,500 cases of pellet guns attacks.

The Legal Forum for Kashmir (LFK) and the Britain-based investigating unit, the Stoke White Investigations jointly issued the report at the Islamabad Press Club. Both the organisations also issued a dossier on India’s treatment of Kashmiri journalists and human rights defenders in IIOJK.

Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed told media that the investigative report drew the world attention towards India’s policy of silencing journalists and human rights defenders in the IIOJK. He said the report also carries names of officers who were responsible for the harassment and detention of journalists and human rights defenders.

“The effort of the LFK and the SWI unit to document the war crimes committed by the Indian authorities is commendable, Sayed said. “Indian massacres in occupied Kashmir are similar to Israel’s illegal actions against the Palestinians,” he added.

He pointed out that despite being a peaceful activist, Kashmiri human rights activist Khurram Pervez was falsely accused of stoking terrorism, adding that the only crime of Pervez was to speak the truth against the occupation forces.

Prominent Kashmiri Hurriyat leader Mashaal Mullick appreciated the joint report on Indian abuses against journalists and human rights defenders in the IIOJK. She said that all human rights violations of India in IIOJK should be documented.
