German Chancellor in her visit to India expressed deep concerns over prevailing situation in Held Kashmir and urged India to respect human rights. The US President also offered mediation role to resolve this core dispute. Turkey and Iran also condemned Indian atrocities in Held Kashmir and urged the United Nations to resolve the long standing issue in accordance with UN resolutions. Malaysian Prime Minister, despite Indian threats, supported Pakistani stance and urged India to stop human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir. All these developments indicate that Kashmir issue has been internationalized. International media is also highlighting Indian human rights violations in the valley. India has created an environment of instability in the region. Muslim countries should stand united to force India to give the Kashmiris their right to self-determination.
