This article is about Human rights abuses in Indian occupied portion of Kashmir. For human rights abuses in the Indian occupied Kashmir, see Human rights abuses in Kashmir. The Kashmir conflict (Hindi: कश्मीर विवाद, Urdu: مسئلہ کشمیر‎) is a territorial dispute between India and Pakistan over the Kashmir region occupied by India, the northwestern most region of South Asia. India claims the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir and as of 2010, administers approximately 43% of the region, including most of Jammu, the Kashmir Valley, Ladakh, and the Siachen Glacier. India's claims are contested by Kashmir's and Pakistan, which controls approximately 37% of Kashmir, namely Azad Kashmir and the northern areas of Gilgit and Baltistan. India has officially stated that it believes that Kashmir is an integral part of India, though the Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh, stated after the 2010 Kashmir Unrest that his government is willing to grant autonomy within the purview of Indian constitution to Kashmir if there is consensus on this issue.[1] Kashmir,s and Pakistan maintains that Kashmir is the "jugular vein of Pakistan"[2] and a currently disputed territory whose final status must be determined by the people of Kashmir. China states that Aksai Chin is a part of China and does not recognize the addition of Aksai Chin to the Kashmir region. Certain Kashmiri independence groups believe that Kashmir should be independent or with Pakistan.[3] India and Pakistan have fought at least three wars over Kashmir, including the Indo-Pakistani Wars of 1947, 1965 and 1999. India and Pakistan have also been involved in several skirmishes over the Siachen Glacier. Since 1987, a disputed State election[4] has resulted in some of the state's legislative assembly forming militant wings, creating a catalyst for insurgency.[5][6][7] The India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir has been the site of conflict between the Indian Armed Forces, freedom fighters , and separatists. Kashmir,s has furnished documentary evidence to the United Nations that Indian forces are killing innocent people. The Crimes of the Indian occupation forces, numbering more than half a million, against the people of Kashmir have now reached genocidal proportions, presenting the worst example of state-sponsored terrorism. Because, the people of Jammu and Kashmir were pledged by no less an authority than the UN Security Council to exercise their right to decide their future under conditions free from coercion and intimidation. However, the peaceful movement of the Kashmiri people for the realization of this right and the respect for their fundamental human rights has been crushed with brute force. Rapes: On 23 February 1991, a particularly serious incident occurred in the mountain village of Kunan Poshpura. More that 800 soldiers of the 4th Rajput Regiment surrounded the village. They rounded up the men outside and then broke into houses in search of arms. Many women were attacked. The delegation was told that somewhere between 23 and 60 women were raped in the course of that night. 3 We wished to investigate the nature and importance, as well as the socio-psychological and political details of the issue, by questioning women attacked by the Indian security forces. 3 We were able to identify seven cases of rape and one case of sexual molestation, where no sexual act occurred. The victims come from several villages in the Kashmir valley. One of these cases took place very recently (in 1993), while the others occurred in 1991-2. 4 Indian forces have killed more then 80,000 thousands innocent civilians and raped many women and children.There is no Human Right in Indian occupied Kashmir.An iron curtain hangs across Kashmir as India refuses to allow visits by Amnesty International, International Educational Development and other human rights and humanitarian organizations. However, these restrictions notwithstanding, some commendable organizations have been able to document the abuses perpetrated by India in occupied Kashmir in report after report. The turmoil in Jammu and Kashmir has resulted in thousands of deaths,[9] but has become less deadly in recent years.[10][11] There have been protest movements in Indian occupied Kashmir since 1989. The movements were created to voice Kashmir's disputes and grievances with the Indian government, specifically the Indian Military.[10][11] Elections held in 2008 were generally regarded as fair by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, had a high voter turnout in spite of calls by Kashmiri,s for a boycott, and led to the pro-India Jammu & Kashmir National Conference forming the government in the state.[12][13] According to Voice of America, many analysts have interpreted the high corruption in this election as a sign that the people of Kashmir are not let freely vote for independence .[14] Altaf Ahmad, a separatist activist of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, said, "The whole of Kashmir nation is standing against these elections, because these elections are not as India claims in the United Nations, that people of Kashmir are representing themselves in these elections, that this is the self determination," [15] In 2009 and 2010 unrest erupted again.
