Kuwaiti MPs condemn rights abuses in Kashmir
Kuwait, Aug 23: A group of Kuwaiti members of parliament have criticized India over “atrocities and human rights violations in Kashmir” and vowed they will oppose any agreement between Kuwait and any other nation that oppresses and maltreats Muslims.
Salafi MP Muhammad Hayef called for implementing what he called the UN resolution that granted Kashmir the right to self determination.
Hayef called on Muslims around the world to pay greater attention to the cause of Kashmir, saying that more than 60 years have lapsed on the issue and it is time Muslims helped their brothers in Kashmir.
The Kuwaiti lawmaker said that thousands of Kashmiris have either been killed or are in jail. He said Kashmiris are fighting for their independence.
Hayef urged human rights organizations to support the humanitarian issues of Kashmir, and criticized the Jeddah-based Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) for not pressing to resolve the Kashmir issue. The lawmaker warned that he and other Islamist MPs will oppose agreements between Kuwait and any foreign country which has a negative attitude towards Muslims.
MP Jamaan Al-Harbash said it is the duty of every Muslim to help Kashmir so it doesn’t become another Palestine. He said that UN resolutions in favour of Muslims are usually not implemented. GK Monitoring Desk
