The Gand Mufti of Australia and the Australian National Imam Council (ANIC) have strongly condemned the recent human rights violations carried out by the Indian forces against innocent civilians in occupied Kashmir (IOK).

The Grand Mufti and the ANIC in a statement issued in Amsterdam said, "We unequivocally reject the Indian Government unilateral action to abolish the special autonomous status of Indian-occupied portion of the Muslim-majority in Kashmir. The Indian government's latest provocations backed by military intervention are in breach of International laws supported by several UN Security Council resolutions."

"Our sincerest thoughts and prayers are with the innocent and their families," the statement added.

"These irrational actions came after days of an escalated crackdowns by Indian forces on innocent civilians in Kashmir, with thousands of troops deployed, a lockdown curfew imposed on parts of the region, a telecommunications shutdown and the arrest of political leaders."

The statement further said, "These irrational and barbaric actions of the Indian government have exposed the ugly face of India's so called democratic government with a highly tainted record of nationalist government sponsored atrocities against religious minorities including Christian and Muslim communities."

"We would like to call upon the Australian government to advocate the protection of the human rights of the people of the Indian occupied Kashmir. We request the Australian government to raise these serious issues especially that Australia has the privilege of holding one out of ten non-permanent seats in the United Nations Security Council."
