ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -24th Augst,2016) : The Executive Director of New Delhi-based South Asia Human Rights Documentation Centre (SAHRDC), Ravi Nair, has said that the Indian Government is grossly violating international norms by indiscriminately using pellet guns against protesters in occupied Kashmir. Ravi Nair in an interview with a Srinagar-based English daily Greater Kashmir said that the Indian government was violating the UN basic principles on the use of force and firearms and the UN code of conduct for law enforcement officials,Kashmir Media Sevice reported.
He said that the Indian state had lost any remaining vestige of moral high ground it sought to cloak itself with in Kashmir in its failure to stop the immediate use of the pellet guns in the occupied territory.
The setting up of a Committee of Indian Home Ministry to review use of pellet guns, which has another month to submit its report, is procrastination at its best, he stated. The SAHRDC Executive Director termed the overall human rights situation in occupied Kashmir as abominable, adding that the Indian state had substantively proved that it was bereft of eyesight, hindsight or foresight in its dealings with the Kashmiri people.
