THE UN MUST REPRIMAND THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT FOR ITS GROSS MALTREATMENT OF THE CITIZENS OF MAQBOOZA KASHMIR:
HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE
Vithal Mahadeo Tarkunde alias Justice V M Tarkunde a so called prominent civil rights activist said, “A grant of plebiscite to the people of Kashmir Valley is the obvious solution. If, as a third alternative Kashmir becomes an Independent Democratic and Secular State, its territorial integrity should be guaranteed by India, Pakistan and the UN. That would end the hostility between India and Pakistan and Kashmir will acquire the Status of the Switzerland of Asia. A Humanist cannot wish for anything better" Similarly, Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru the then Prime Minister of India on July 6, 1951 bragged, “People seem to forget that Kashmir is not a commodity for sale or to be bartered. It has an individual existence and its people must be the final arbiters of their future"
Mr. Tarkunde, and Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru had never expressed these kinds of views about the citizens of Punjab (Khalistan), Junagarah, Manawa, or Hyderabad to become Independent Democratic and Secular States with territorial integrity guaranteed by India, Pakistan and the UN. They did utter these theoretical dilemmas but never translated it to practicality. Six decades have preceded and to this day the Indian army has killed over 270,000 Sikhs and over 500,000 Muslims in the aforementioned areas on top of the more than 200,000 mercilessly slaughtered in Maqbooza Kashmir who dared to use freedom of speech to demand their God given right of freedom. The United Nations has a mandate to keep a close eye on countries as to how they treat minorities and peoples living in occupied/disputed territories. The grave human rights violations and continuous loss of human lives in the areas are not hidden to anyone. It has been proven by the passage of time that those statements were just tactics to buy time as India claims today that Maqbooza Kashmir is an integral part of India. Therefore, the UN must reprimand the Indian Government for its maltreatment of the people in the occupied/disputed territories and have its 1948 plebiscite resolution implemented.
