European parliament passes resolution against mass graves in Kashmir PARIS: The European parliament Thursday adopted a protest resolution against mass graves discovered in occupied Kashmir.
The European Parliament during its plenary session in Strasbourg, France voted on a resolution on violation of human rights in Kashmir.
The request for inclusion in the agenda for the debate on cases of breaches of human rights, democracy and the rule of law was made by four members of European parliament.
The resolution says that “hundreds of unidentified graves have been discovered since 2006 in Jammu and Kashmir”.
The resolution calls on the Indian government “to urgently ensure independent and impartial investigations into all suspected sites of mass graves in Jammu and Kashmir and as an immediate first step to secure the grave sites in order to preserve the evidence”.
It calls on the European Commission to offer financial and technical assistance to the Indian government for a thorough inquiry.
