Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday said that the Indian Army is most restraint in dealing with militants and protesters in Jammu and Kashmir.

While dismissing the United Nations report on Jammu and Kashmir, Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that the ground reality has been sidelined in the terrorism-affected state. Dismissing the allegations of human rights violation of the security forces, he said that the United Nations has completely ignored the assistance of the Indian Army for the victims of terrorism in the state. Meanwhile, Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh said that the report of the United Nations Human Rights Commission on Jammu and Kashmir has nothing to do with the United Nations. This is a person’s released report.

Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday said that the Indian Army is most restraint in dealing with militants and protesters in Jammu and Kashmir. The army has established many schools there Boys and girls have been trained for higher education. He has also given them the opportunity to travel to other states of India.

On the other hand, Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh dismissed the report of the United Nations Human Rights Commission, saying that this report has nothing to do with the United Nations. This is a person’s ongoing report and it should be seen in the same way.

It is notable that at the beginning of this week, Pakistan’s permanent representative in the United Nations, Malihai Lodi, cited a report on June 14 in Pakistan-Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. This report was presented by United Nations High Commissioner Jed Rad al-Hussein during the discussion on armed conflict and children’s issues in the Security Council. In this report, Al Hussein had demanded an independent international investigation into human rights violations in Kashmir.
