Chairman Kashmir Committee of Parliament Shehryar Khan Afridi has expressed serious concern over harassment by the Modi administration of the Amnesty International officials in India.
Chairman Kashmir Committee of Parliament Shehryar Khan Afridi said the human rights watchdog says that the right-wing government of India has frozen the bank account of its India branch, forcing it to lay off staff, stop campaign and research work in India.
Afridi urged the United Nations Human Rights Council and other international human rights groups to take immediate measures to provide adequate and urgent security to the officials of the rights bodies and groups working in India.
Amnesty International has announced that it has been forced to halt its India operations due to attacks from the Modi administration over-reporting on grave human rights in Jammu and Kashmir.
Amnesty International in its statement said the organization has been compelled to let go of staff in India and pause all its ongoing campaign and research work. This is the latest in the incessant witch-hunt of human rights organizations by the Government of India over unfounded and motivated allegations.
