US senators stand with Kashmir, urge Trump to help end Pak-India tensions

PM Imran Khan has addressed the Kashmir issue at the international forum at length. He has tried his best to draw the world’s attention towards the sufferings of the poor Kashmiris living in Indian held Kashmir.

However, the international community was silent over the issue for the past few days. But now it seemed that they are actually making efforts to put a full stop to Modi-oriented government’s atrocities on Kashmiris.

Yesterday, a group of US senators has issued an official letter urging President Donald Trump to thinks about his mediation offer. They asked him to help end all the tensions between Pakistan and India which have been going on for days over Kashmir issue.

The Senators who were mentioned in the letter were Chris Van Hollen, Ben Cardin, Lindsey Graham, and Todd Young. Their Thursday written letter was addressing Trump. They urge him to immediately act to stop the “humanitarian crisis” in the Indian occupied Kashmir under PM Modi’s instructions.

They further asked him to talk to the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ask him to immediately lift down the curfew and put an end to the sufferings of the poor and innocent Kashmiris.

The letter which was written to Donald Trump reads: “We write to express our concern regarding the situation in Kashmir, which has grave implications for democracy, human rights and regional stability. While we support your goal of working with the parties to help find a long-term resolution to the status of Kashmir, we write now to urge you to immediately facilitate an end to the current humanitarian crisis there.”

“With each passing day, the situation for the people of Kashmir becomes increasingly difficult. Therefore, we ask that you call upon Prime Minister Modi to fully restore telecommunications and internet services, lift the lockdown and curfew, and release Kashmiris detained pursuant to India’s revocation of Article 370.”

Senators further mentioned that “The United States has a vital role to play in facilitating a resolution to this humanitarian crisis, and we urge you to act swiftly.”

“Once the urgent humanitarian situation has been addressed, we hope the United States can play a constructive role in helping resolve the underlying disputes between the two nuclear powers, India and Pakistan.”
