UN concerned over atrocities in India

The United Nations human rights chief, Michelle Bachelet raised concerns over the situation in Indian-administered Kashmir that has been suppressed and lacked down since the last six months, and the anti-Muslim escalations in New Delhi where hundreds of Muslims were killed during peaceful protests to oppose the new citizenship law.
The high commissioner for human rights Michelle Bachelet said “In India more broadly, the Citizenship Amendment Act adopted last December is of great concern” while appealing the Indian leadership to curb violent acts in the region. She informed the council in geneva “Indians in huge numbers, and from all communities, have expressed in a mostly peaceful manner, their opposition to the Act, and support for the country’s long tradition of secularism”.
The human rights chief was concerned about reports of police “inaction” during the attacks by Hindus to destroy Muslims buildings and their lives. Michelle raised voice for the excessive use of force by the police against the innocent and peaceful activists. “This has now widened into broader inter-communal attacks, with 38 people killed since Sunday. I appeal to all political leaders to prevent violence”, she added.
Bachelet regretted over inhumane conditions in New Delhi including the excessive use of police force against the peaceful protestors. The UN human rights chief felt sorry, as no concepts have been taken by the government against the nasty and brutal behavior of the police force towards the protestors. She noted, at the same time, that the situation is normalized in the New Delhi while 800 people are still in detention including activists and political leaders.
The high commissioner said, “Schools, businesses, and livelihoods have been disrupted by the continued heavy military presence”. She maintained that mobile phone and internet services have been restored, however, further restrictions have been imposed on the usage of social media.–Worldwide News
