  • US Congressmen have written a letter to the Indian government expressing concern over illegal sanctions in occupied Kashmir.
  • Elliott Engel, chairman of the US House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Michael McCall, former chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, have written letters to Indian Foreign Minister Jay Shankar regarding sanctions in the occupied valley.
  •  Leading Republicans and Democrats say the situation in the Valley has not returned to normal since the repeal of Article 370 on August 5, 2019.
  • The letter called for ensuring the implementation of human freedoms and democratic values ​​in occupied Kashmir.
  • It may be recalled that a year has passed since the abolition of the special constitutional status of Indian-occupied Kashmir, but so far the occupied valley is practically in a state of lockdown.
  • According to Human Rights Watch, there is a severe lack of freedom of expression, information and health care in the occupied valley, and the Corona epidemic has exacerbated the plight of the people of the valley.
  • Human Rights Watch says India has illegally detained hundreds of youths, including children and the elderly, in occupied Kashmir by imposing inhumane sanctions.
