Violation of Human Rights in India and Kashmir
Policy Imperatives for Pakistan
Mairaj ul Hamid Nasri
The Preamble to the Indian constitution describes the country as a “Sovereign Socialist secular Democratic Republic”. Article 25 (1) of the constitution guarantees to all citizens of India right to freedom of religion in these words: “… all persons are equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right freely to profess, practise and propagate religion.” Nevertheless, since the election of Narendra Modi as country’s Prime Minister in 2014, many actions of the government have caused discomfort among minorities, e.g. drastic changes and manipulation in school curriculum, ban on beef and cow slaughter, attacks on churches, harassment of Christian nuns and the promotion of violent organizations of reconversions. Numerous reports of United Nations, United States Commission for International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) and Amnesty International evidence gross violation of human rights in India. Now, India has become ‘Hindia’ because of its persistent support to Hindutva and incessant violations of human rights of minority communities, i.e. Muslims, Christians and others.
