Shame on anti-democracy UN, can’t send even UNHRC observers in India and Pak

Dear Editor

Sub:- Kashmiris should move SCI for allowing UNHRC observers in Kashmir

Ref:- (i)- UN is not working for citizens of member countries (ii)- With such anti-democracy mindset UN has become anti-humanity (iii)- Human rights in member countries should be priority for US President (iv)- For saving his already sullied legacy Obama should at-least ensure free entry of UNHRC Observers in member countries (v)- Otherwise USA not entitled to keep UN head office on its soil

---- Why anyone should be surprised if NHRC in India has become a white elephant (hence not bothered if 65 are killed ~ 7,000 injured including security forces ~ 150 eyes injured by pellet guns during on-going unrest in Kashmir which is under curfew for the last 40 days) when the UNHRC has also become a white elephant which caters to the whims & high handedness of governments of its member countries without bothering about the human tights of the citizens of the member countries, though in any democracy its citizens are supposed to be the real sovereigns.

Zeid Ra’ad Al Husein (UN High Commissioner for Human Rights of this biggest white elephant the UN Human Rights Council, UNHRC) thinks that expressing regret is enough (and resigning from such meaningless body as UNHRC is not needed) as he expressed on Wednesday that both India and Pakistan have denied access to their respective administered parts of Jammu and Kashmir as mentioned at: http://thewire.in/59711/un-kashmir-india-pakistan/ .Of-course people will continue to be killed and injured in India and Pakistan side of Kashmir but Zeid Hussein will keep on drawing handsome salary and allowances from UN.

On other hand there is one President Obama of USA (the so-called leader of free world) who has already sullied his legacy about human rights (i)- In Ukraine, the territorial integrity of which USA is under legal obligation to protect under Budapest Memorandum but did not do so and allowed Crimea to be snatched by Russia and which has triggered unrest and immense violation of human rights in Donbass region of Ukraine too (ii)- In NAME region (including Syria) where human rights violation has been taking place immensely after USA led West launched Arab-spring in this region and which has brought ISIS in existence.

Though such US President is not bothered whether or not UNHRC Observers are allowed access to J&K on both sides of LOC (where human rights are being violated by respective State functionaries with impunity) in India and Pakistan but USA does not mind keeping head office of UN at its soil without bothering whether UN is relevant or not to the people of its member States. It is matter of shame that UN has been allowed by not only USA but by other 4 permanent members too (namely Russia, UK, France and China) to become such anti-democracy institution.

In such a situation Kashmiris should immediately move Supreme Court of India (SCI) by making NHRC also a Respondent in order to (A)- Constrain Government of India (GOI) to immediately allow UNHRC Observers to go to Kashmir (B)- Ask GOI to ensure that to-be-prepared HR Status report of UNHRC about Kashmir is submitted to SCI too.
