Lt. Gen. Retd. Raza Muhammad Khan (Defense Analyst):Modi-led government’s policies have put the democratic status of India at stake. These policies are especially against minorities and Muslims are facing the brunt. Pressure has started mounting on India to reverse these policies. India revoked the essential articles that granted an independent status to state of Kashmir. Only a permanent and durable solution to Kashmir issue could lead to peace and prosperity in South Asia. International human rights organizations including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have consistently been raising their voice against human rights abuses in IIOJ&K and world public opinion is also realizing the sensitivity of the situation. On the domestic front, Indian government is also facing criticism for spying on its own people.
