Earlier today, United Nations Human Rights Office published a human rights report on divided parts of Jammu and Kashmir.
The report said there is an urgent need to address past and ongoing human rights violations and abuses and deliver justice for all people in Kashmir, who for seven decades have suffered a conflict that has claimed or ruined numerous lives.
The 49-page report – the first ever issued by the UN on the human rights situation in Indian-administered and Pakistan-administered Kashmir – details human rights violations and abuses on both sides of the Line of Control, and highlights a situation of chronic impunity for violations committed by security forces.
