India deliberately sidelining mainstream political leadership in IIOJK

Dr. Khurram Iqbal (IR Expert):In the last three years or so, number of international bodies including the United Nations, Amnesty international and Human Rights Watch have categorically been condemning the human rights violations committed by the Indian government in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The global conscious seems to be wakening in support of plight of the Kashmiris. But unfortunately, Indian government is not taking these reports seriously and making lame excuses to justify its illegal occupation and atrocities in the valley. There is an increased tendency of sidelining the political voices of the valley. The policies of the BJP government in the constituencies are being drawn on the size of the territory that will benefit the Hindu community. The Hindu dominated areas are larger in size in the valley. The BJP government has intentionally sidelined the mainstream political parties of the occupied valley.
