GENEVA: Prominent rights activist and Chairman Kashmir Institute of International Relations (KIIR) Altaf Hussain Wani has said that holding of G_20 summit in India or anywhere in occupied Jammu Kashmir would be tantamount to whitewashing the Indian government’s crimes it has been contributing against humanity within and outside the held territory.

In a statement issued here today the KIIR chief while referring to rising tides of communalism, intolerance and xenophobia within the Indian society said that the G-20 countries should not turn a blind eye towards the woeful plight of Kashmiris who were facing the heavy brunt of Modi government’s double edged onslaught since the past several years.

Urging G-20 countries not to sacrifice human rights on economic interests, Wani said that under the given circumstances holding of G-20 summit in India or meeting in Indian occupied Kashmir was tantamount to whitewashing crimes the BJP government had committed against Kashmiris and minorities in India.

Referring to the India’s human rights abusing regime’s worst track record, the KIIR chairman said, “Indian is a worst violator of International human rights standards.

Wani said that before embarking to New Delhi G-20 leaders should come out clean and publicaly condemn the Indian government for its poor human rights track record and discriminatory policies.

He said that the G-20 countries silence on the issue of Kashmir would embolden the Hindu supremacist regime led by Modi to continue its brute repression in the occupied Kashmir and aggression against minorities in India.
