The UN says, the people of Kashmir have exactly the same rights to justice and dignity as people all over the world.

The new UN Human Rights Chief, Michelle Bachelet, in her opening remarks at the 39th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Brussels, has urged India to respect these rights and take meaningful action on addressing issues highlighted in the UN report on human rights violations in Kashmir.

She also reiterated the UNHRC’s request for unconditional access to Kashmir on either side of the Line of Control.

However, India reacted sharply to the report, calling it fallacious, tendentious and motivated.
