Brussels … News Time

Voting will take place in the European Parliament on January 30, following a lively debate on India’s controversial citizenship law and human rights abuses in occupied Kashmir. These resolutions are presented by the majority of the members in parliament, while India is using diplomatic means to hold voting on these resolutions. According to the World Broadcasting Agenda issued by the European Parliament meeting, the meeting will take place on January 29 in the Belgian capital of Brussels all members of parliament will attend the meeting and six resolutions will be discussed while voting will be held on January 30.

According to the agenda of the meeting, the first European Commission Vice President Josep Borrell will give a statement on the Indian Citizenship Amendment Act 2019. The agenda further states that the EU has discussed the situation in India-occupied Kashmir in September, 2019, but no vote was taken on the issue, which is expected to be voted on January 30. The agenda stated that in October 2019, the Indian government did not facilitate the 22-member delegation of the European Parliament to visit New Delhi and Srinagar but it appears that the effort did not have the desired effect on the European Parliament.

Recent resolutions whose words are slightly different focus on citizenship law will be presented by 6 different groups, representing 626 of the total 751 members of the European Parliament. The resolutions mention more than a dozen government actions in Indian-occupied Kashmir that allegedly violate India’s global commitments in international law, human rights and the UN Security Council. These measures include the firing of policemen in Uttar Pradesh, violence during detention in Jammu and Kashmir after the abolition of Kashmir’s sovereignty and violence against citizenship law. And those who do not have citizenship of a country are likely to suffer the biggest crisis in the world.

India, on the other hand, has also prepared six resolutions in the Parliament of the country in response to the Jammu and Kashmir and Citizenship Act in response to the move. The Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has declined to comment publicly on EU contracts that would have a profound impact on India’s relations with the European Union. It should be noted that India’s new citizenship laws are being widely criticized for discriminating against Muslims. The resolution presented and supported by the lawmakers of the Revenue Group called for the European Union and its member states to promote the implementation of UN Security Council resolutions on occupied Kashmir.

Denouncing unilateral changes in the special status of India-occupied Kashmir, the resolution said India had never implemented UN Security Council resolutions. Under which the Kashmiris need to hold a referendum to determine the future status of occupied Kashmir. Calling India to withdraw controversial amendments to citizenship law, the resolution said that the new law violates the international obligations of India, which deals with the elimination of deprivation of citizenship on the basis of race and nationality on the Convention on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and other human rights treaties. The new citizenship law in the resolution encourages violence by police and pro-government groups pointing to clear violations of the rights of residents of India and its neighboring countries. The Indian government was urged to immediately engage in peaceful dialogue with different sections of the population.

The resolution emphasized that the Indian government should ensure that the security forces comply with UN principles on the use of force and weapons. The resolution cited the use of violence at Jawaharlal Nehru University earlier this month as the center of protests against the CAA and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) for defamation. And it was said that the police saw the attack but refused to control and arrest the mob. According to the Indian constitution, India is a sovereign secular democratic country and therefore the inclusion of religion as a standard of citizenship is basically unconstitutional. Earlier, several diplomats from EU countries rejected Indian officials’ extraordinary visit to Kashmir, where curfew has been in force since August 5 last year and communication is blackout.
