Exiled Kashmiris urge UNHRC to act against Pakistan, accuse ISI of targeting judges, journalists

Geneva, Switzerland, July 05, 2021: - Exiled Kashmiris and rights activists held a demonstration in front of UN Human Rights Council building in Geneva to highlight Pakistan’s systematic discrimination against Kashmiris in the region it has illegally occupied for over seven decades. They sought immediate UN intervention into Pakistan’s human rights violations, state-backed enforced disappearances of ethnic minorities, and the brazen misuse of draconian laws against the judiciary, social activism and journalism to muzzle the dissent. A number of them, they said, have been held on framed up charges and many others have been sentenced to prison for not falling in line with Islamabad’s narratives and versions of reality.
