Prime Minister Imran Khan has raised the Kashmir issue at the international forum. As a result, the United Nations has instructed the Modi government to lift curfew in the region here on Tuesday.

The statement issued by the United Nations is considered to be the most hard-hitting statement.

The UN says “Twelve weeks ago, on August 05, India revoked constitutional provisions granting partial autonomy to the state of Jammu and Kashmir and announced the creation of two separate federally-administered Union Territories, which will come into effect this Thursday (October 31). At the same time, very restrictive measures were imposed. Although some of these measures have been relaxed, their impact on human rights continues to be widely felt.”

It further declared that “We have also received reports of armed groups operating in Indian-Administered Kashmir threatening residents trying to carry out their normal business or attend school, as well as several allegations of violence against people who have not complied with the armed groups’ demands. At least another six people have been killed and over a dozen injured in alleged attacks by armed group members since August 05.”
