We are deeply distressed at the grave human rights situation in the Indian Occupied Kashmir. While there has been a persistent pattern of human rights violations by the Indian army in the past seven decades, in a recent case, Indian armed forces killed more than 40 Kashmiri civilians in Kashmir in the month of April 2018 alone.

These extra-judicial killings prompted peaceful protests by civilians all across the Valley of Kashmir. Unfortunately, instead of heeding to the voice of the protesters, Indian army resorted to violence against them, resulting in hundreds of injuries. The Indian security forces continue to use live ammunition and pellet guns which have blinded more than one thousand Kashmiris especially since 2016.

The United States, as a champion of human rights around the world, in conjunction with the international community, should send a clear message to the Government of India that such barbarity has no place in the comity of nations in this day and age.

We call upon our Administration to play an active part in ensuring that the promises made to the people of Kashmir at the U.N. more than seven decades ago, be fulfilled and an opportunity given to the people to participate in a free and fair referendum to determine their future in line with their inalienable right to self-determination.
