Dr. Rasheed Ahmed Khan (IR Expert):
India is in hot waters due to Pakistan's diplomatic efforts to highlight Kashmir issue at international front. International community is now taking notice of human rights violations in Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK).China has also condemned Indian brutalities in IOK. India has received a sharp nudge from Human Rights Council and the Higher Commissioner in her statement has expressed deep concerns over the impact of recent actions from the government of India on the human rights of the people of Kashmir and asked India to lift curfew from the valley. The United States offers of mediation have global significance but India will never accept any political solution to Kashmir dispute. The United States also wants to resolve Kashmir issue to avoid any regional escalation between two nuclear states. India should realize that United Nations is very serious about the human rights situation in IOK.
