Amnesty tells India to check rights abuses in Kashmir

NEW DELHI: Amnesty International has urged India to check alleged human rights abuses in Kashmir and end the "arbitrary and abusive" detention system in the troubled state. A 70-page report released by the global rights watchdog Monday focuses on the Jammu and Kashmir Public Safety Act (PSA). It terms the PSA a "lawless law". The report - the first on Jammu and Kashmir since 2000 - documents how authorities in the state were using the controversial act to detain people for years at a time, "without trial, depriving them of basic human rights otherwise provided under Indian law".

    It is high time that India govt pays heed to the appeals of Amnesty bring justice & accord freedom to Kashmir from military rule. In a free country how can a region be under army control for so many years? Can our leaders imagine the plight of the citizens, the young men & women born under this regime and grown up under this stressful condition? How can they ever be a part of India? One cannot get love, loyalty & respect at gunpoint. Kashmir is India’s shame and will remain so unless our leaders resolve the issue immediately.
