Kashmir could Feature in UN General Assembly Meet

Kashmir could Feature in UN General Assembly Meet

Kashmir has always remained an issue ever since it was annexed to Indian way back on October 26, 1947. With the region that has abundant natural beauty, neglected by successive governments and targeted by terrorist organizations and self-serving political leaders, Kashmir is like a silent valley crying soundlessly for help. A former state that did not garner much importance or support from successive governments after it was annexed to India on 26 October 1947, Kashmir has also been a bone of contention between India and Pakistan, which had already upsurged a portion of Kashmir called PoK (Pakistan occupied Kashmir).

October 26 is celebrated as Accession Day every year to commemorate the day the Dogra ruler of Jammu and Kashmir, Maharaja Hari Singh signed the Instrument of Accession in 1947. The region has been a subject of debate between India and Pakistan ever since. Early in the morning of October 27, the Indian Army's first Sikh battalion was air-dropped in Srinagar, where they resisted the onslaught of the Pathan invasion from across the Pakistan border, and thus officially completed Kashmir's accession to India.

The current situation in Kashmir has remained constant for more than a month in the wake of the abrogation of Article 370.  The severe clampdown fearing repercussions has not been totally lifted.  Local political leaders are still under house arrest and the natives have been disadvantaged with the severe restrictions imposed on them.  The initial concern that was raised in the international community continues. Pakistan tried to highlight and address the issue as part of an aggressive stand taken by India, yet found no takers on the global platform; not even among the Islamic nations.

The United Nations General Secretary Antonio Guterres has most likely indicated that he will raise the Kashmir issue at the high-level UN General Assembly meet next week. The UN Chief tuned into the happenings in the Kashmir Valley has expressed concern and has underscored the need for dialogue as the only way to resolve the issue. He wants to ensure that human rights aspects are dealt with in the current crisis.The UN Chief made it clear that human rights must be fully respected, amidst international concerns that the normalcy must be restored as quickly as possible in the valley.
