US Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has raised her voice over the ongoing situations of Kashmir.

According to details, Rashida Tlaib condemned New Delhi’s revocation of Articles 370 and 35A in the India-occupied Kashmir (IoK) and stated that India should admit the human rights violations, which have been done in the valley.

Rashida Tlaib released a statement regarding the situation in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and said, “I condemn the Indian government’s revocation of Articles 370 and 35A, the communications blockade it has imposed, its suppression of life-saving medical care, and the reports of widespread violence, torture, and other human rights violations being carried out in Jammu and Kashmir.

“I condemn the revocation of #Article370 & #Article35A, the imposed comms blockade, suppression of life-saving medical care, and reports of widespread human rights violations in #Jammu and #Kashmir”, US Congresswoman said in her tweet.

“I urge the Indian government to accept responsibility for the human rights violations being carried out, hold the responsible parties accountable, and lift the comms blockade and all curfew restrictions to shed light on what is happening in Jammu and Kashmir.”, Rashida Tlaib tweeted.

Areas of Indian occupied Kashmir are reeling under strict curfew and communication blackout since August 5, when India unilaterally revoked Article 370 of the Indian Constitution that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

Normal life remains crippled on the 41st consecutive day, today, in the Kashmir valley and five districts of Jammu region.

Markets are shut and public transport is off the road since August 5 when Narendra Modi-led Indian government had announced repeal of special status of occupied Kashmir.
