Die neue Regierung muss den Schutz der Menschenrechte in Jammu und Kaschmir gewährleisten

Amnesty International India welcomes the pledge of the new central government to ensure the security of all citizens in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) in the wake of Defence Minister Arun Jaitley’s visit to the state. In particular, the organization welcomes the recent overtures made to rehabilitate families of an estimated 150,000 to 200,000 Kashmiri Pandits who were forced to leave the state between 1990 and 1994 due to threats and intimidation from armed groups. At the outbreak of insurgency in the early 1990s, several prominent Kashmiri Pandit community leaders were killed and others intimidated by armed groups.

New government must implement effective policies to ensure protection of human rights in Jammu and Kashmir
