International Human Rights Commission and its members are deeply concerned over the developments in India-administered Jammu and Kashmir, where, over the last few days, fundamental human rights have been severely curtailed. We also condemn the outright revocation of Article 370 and its allied Bills, which was passed by executive orders without following a consultative process.
Article 370 provides special status to Jammu and Kashmir, which includes the power of self-governance. Its revocation is a breach of trust and puts an already volatile and tense situation further at risk. We condemn the further militarisation of the State.
