Ask Jeremy Corbyn to attend the UNHRC to demand the restoration of basic human rights including the freedom of speech and communication, the lifting of curfews, and to allow the humanitarian aid organisation and international observers to enter the region.

In 2019 Labour conference of Labour Party UK, the following resolution has been passed on Jammu Kashmir dispute.

This conference notes:

While we have been meeting here, Pakistan and India are discussing the issue of Kashmir at the United Nations as there is a major humanitarian crisis taking place in the Kashmir region and several exchanges of fire across the Line of Control have taken place.

The enforced disappearance of civilians, the state-endorsed sexual violence of women by armed forces and the overall prevalence of human rights violations in the region not only continues but has exasperated further in the past week.

The house arrest/imprisonment of mainstream politicians and activists and restrictions on journalistic freedom.

The ongoing communications blackout causing disruption for medical agencies and families not knowing the safety of their relatives.

The conference urges the Labour party to:

Ask Jeremy Corbyn to attend the UNHRC to demand the restoration of basic human rights including the freedom of speech and communication, the lifting of curfews, and to allow the humanitarian aid organisation and international observers to enter the region.

Jeremy Corbyn to meet high commissioners of both India and Pakistan to ensure there are mediation and restoration of peace and normality to prevent a potential nuclear conflict.

Accept that Kashmir is a disputed territory and the people of Kashmir should be given the right to self-determination in accordance with UN resolutions.

The Labour party to stand with the Kashmiri people fighting against occupation, this is vital as we stand for social justice and ethical foreign policy.
