'NO POINT TALKING TO INDIA,' PM IMRAN SAYS IN INTERVIEW WITH NYT 
https://www.dawn.com/news/1501007/no-poi...w-with-nyt

Amid rising tension over occupied Kashmir, Prime Minister Imran Khan has said there is "no point" talking to Indian officials, adding that his overtures for peace and dialogue with New Delhi so far have proven futile.

In an interview with The New York Times journalists Salman Masood and Maria Abi-Habib, published on Wednesday, Prime Minister Imran said: "There is no point in talking to them. I mean, I have done all the talking. Unfortunately, now when I look back, all the overtures that I was making for peace and dialogue, I think they took it for appeasement."     During the interview at the Prime Minister's Office in Islamabad, which NYT said was Imran's first with an international news organisation aimed at publicising anger over the situation in occupied Kashmir, the premier said: "There is nothing more that we can do."

The prime minister's remarks come after India stripped Kashmiris of their seven-decade-long special autonomy through a rushed presidential order on August 5. A communications blackout and heavy restrictions on movement imposed by the Indian authorities from the eve of the intervention entered their 18th day on Thursday. At least 4,000 people have been detained in Indian-occupied Kashmir since then.

The prime minister said that the "most important thing" was that the lives of eight million people were at risk. "We are all worried that there is ethnic cleansing and genocide about to happen." The premier described Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as "a fascist and Hindu supremacist who intends to eradicate Kashmir's mostly Muslim population and populate the region with Hindus". Prime Minister Imran, in his messages on Twitter since India's move to annex occupied Kashmir, has repeatedly said that the Indian government's policy in the Himalayan region is in line with the "ideology" of the Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) party — said to be a parent organisation of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) — that believes in "Hindu supremacy".

While speaking to NYT, he expressed concern that India might undertake a deceptive "false-flag operation" in Kashmir to try to justify military action against Pakistan, adding that Pakistan would be forced to respond.   “And then you are looking at two nuclear-armed countries eyeball to eyeball, and anything can happen.   “My worry is that this can escalate and for two nuclear-armed countries, it should be alarming for the world what we are facing now.”

On August 14, while addressing a special session of the Azad Jammu and Kashmir legislative assembly, the premier had warned Modi that any action by India in Pakistan would be countered with a stronger response.

According to the article, the premier demanded that United Nations peacekeepers and observers be allowed in occupied Kashmir.

India rejects criticism

According to NYT, the Indian government did not immediately respond to Prime Minister Imran's comments. The Indian ambassador to the US Harsh Vardhan Shringla, however, rejected the criticism.

"Our experience has been that every time we have taken an initiative towards peace, it has turned out badly for us," he said, adding: "We expect Pakistan to take credible, irreversible and verifiable action against terrorism."

The ambassador also claimed that things were going "back to normal" in occupied Kashmir.

"Restrictions are being eased based on the ground situation. Public utility services, banks and hospitals are functioning normally," he said.  "There are adequate food stocks. Some restrictions on communication are in the interests of safety and security of the citizenry." Ordinary people in the region, however, continue to feel the impact of the restrictions. Nazir Ahmad, a retired engineer who lives in Srinagar, told The Associated Press on Saturday that residents were still facing difficulties in buying items such as vegetables, milk and medicine. He said his father is sick and needs a constant supply of medicine, which the family is finding difficult to procure.

“There is no internet, no telephone, no communication, no transportation,” said Ahmad, describing the situation as living through a “siege.”  “We are living like animals,” he said. “So I request everybody, please come and solve this situation. Nobody is coming out” of their homes.


GENOCIDE WATCH ISSUES ALERTS FOR OCCUPIED KASHMIR AND INDIA's ASSAM STATE 
https://www.dawn.com/news/1501025/genocide-watch-issues-alerts-for-occupied-kashmir-and-indias-assam-state

Genocide Watch, a global organisation dedicated to the prevention of genocide, has issued two warning alerts for India — one for the occupied territory of Kashmir and the other for Assam state. According to the website, a [url=http://www.genocidewatch.com/copy-of-current-genocide-watch-aler]'Genocide Watch' warning is declared by the NGO when there are signs of the early stages of a genocide in progress.  Founded by academic Dr Gregory Stanton in 1999, the organisation exists to predict, prevent, stop, and punish genocide — as defined in the Genocide Convention — and other forms of mass murder.

The most recent genocide alert issued by the organisation was for occupied Kashmir, in which it identified the genocidal process, based on Dr Stanton's 10 Stages of Genocide, to be far advanced:







  1. Classification: Hindu and Sikh Indian army “us” vs Kashmiri Muslim civilian “them”
  2. Symbolisation: Muslims have Muslim names (on ID cards), Kashmiri language, dress, mosques
  3. Discrimination: Hindu pandits were economically dominant until 1990; BJP reasserted Hindu power
  4. Dehumanisation: Muslims are called “terrorists”, “separatists”, “criminals”, “insurgents”
  5. Organisation: 600,000 heavily armed Indian army troops and police dominate occupied Kashmir
  6. Polarisation: Modi and the BJP incite anti-Muslim hatred; social media spread falsehoods
  7. Preparation: The Indian army occupies Kashmir; BJP leaders speak of the “Final Solution” for Kashmir
  8. Persecution: Kashmiri Muslims are locked down, subject to arrest, torture, rape, and murder
  9. Extermination: Since 1990, there have been at least 25 massacres by Indian troops as well as Muslim fighters with death tolls over 25
  10. Denial: Modi and BJP say their goals are to “bring prosperity” and “end terrorism”; they deny any massacres. No Indian Army troops or police are ever tried for torture, rape or murder



In view of these developments, Genocide Watch has called upon the United Nations and its members to warn India not to commit genocide in occupied Kashmir.
At least 4,000 people, mostly young men, have been detained in Indian-occupied Kashmir since a security lockdown and communications blackout was imposed to curb unrest after New Delhi stripped the disputed region of statehood. Kashmiri men sit on a footpath outside a police station waiting to hear about their relatives who were detained during night raids in Srinagar, on August 20.  

The crackdown began just before Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist-led government on August 5 stripped Jammu and Kashmir of its semi-autonomy and its statehood, creating two federal territories. Thousands of additional Indian troops were sent to man checkpoints in the Kashmir Valley, already one of the world’s most militarised regions. Telephone communications, cellphone coverage, broadband internet and cable TV services were cut for the valley’s seven million people.  A report by a team of activists and scholars found that people living under the lockdown expressed “enormous anger and anguish” in response to the surprise move by Modi’s government to revoke autonomy. Maimoona Mollah, an activist on the fact-finding team, likened the situation in the region to Israel’s security protocol in the Palestinian territories. “Kashmir is like an open jail,” said Vimal Bhai, another activist on the team.


Assam
Genocide Watch has also issued an alert for Assam state in India, where millions of Bengali Muslims face losing citizenship status. Kismat Ali, whose wife’s name did not appear on the National Register of Citizens (NRC) draft, shows a form he collected to file an appeal in Mayong.  Over seven million people in Assam State, mostly Muslims of Bengali descent, may lose their Indian citizenship and risk imprisonment in special “foreigner detention centers”. A process is now underway to “verify” the citizenship of all 32 million inhabitants of Assam state, which requires each person to affirmatively prove that they are Indian and not an “illegal migrant”.
"At the urging of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist central government, Assam is updating its master list of 'citizens' [...] Anyone not on the final 'citizen' list will be presumptively declared a 'foreigner', subject to statelessness and indefinite detention.
"Assam’s Muslims are especially likely to be excluded from the 'citizen' list as part of a decades-long pattern of discrimination. The word 'foreigners' is a common term of dehumanization used to exclude targeted groups from citizenship and the exercise of their fundamental civil and human rights," said Genocide Watch.


"The Home Minister of India has repeatedly referred to the Bengali Muslims as 'termites'. Anti-Muslim propaganda has polarised the Assam population. "Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has requested additional Indian government troops and police to arrest 'foreigners'. The Assam state is constructing ten new 'foreigner' detention centers to add to the six prisons already in existence," added Genocide Watch, concluding: "These are the classification, symbolisation, discrimination, dehumanisation, organisation, and polarisation stages of the genocidal process."


Roundups of “foreigners” are likely to ignite genocidal massacres and a massive refugee crisis, the organisation highlighted.  "If India imprisons Bengali Muslims in Assam, it will be violating its obligations under the UN Refugee Conventions. If it expels them from India, it will be perpetrating 'forced displacement', a crime against humanity. If genocidal massacres occur, India will violate its obligations to prevent genocide under the Genocide Convention," added the watchdog.  Genocide Watch called upon the UN Secretary General, the UN Special Advisor on the Prevention of Genocide, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and key UN member states to warn India "not to strip citizenship from, imprison, and forcibly displace millions of Bengali Muslims, many of whom have lived their entire lives in Assam state".
