European parliamentarians back India on Kashmir, slam Pakistan for harbouring terrorists

Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir has been facing a communications blackout since August 5, when New Delhi stripped the disputed region of special provisions guaranteed by the Indian Constitution. "These remarks are an obvious manifestation of India's utter frustration over the continued global censure of its egregious human rights violations in Kashmir", the statement said.

Indian authorities are waiting for "any excuse" to crack down in the Himalayan region, he warned, promising again to raise the issue at the United Nations General Assembly next week.

India can not divert worldwide attention from its crimes against the innocent people of Kashmir blaming Pakistan. New Delhi also asked Islamabad to accept reality and stop its anti-India rhetoric.

Meanwhile, worldwide media reported that screams of people are often heard from Indian army camps in occupied Kashmir at night, as troops pick up youth from villages and torture them.

In a further sign of growing tension, Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi won't be allowed to fly through Pakistani airspace next week on his way to UNGA in NY. "It will provide them an excuse for torture and barbarism".

And showers and thunderstorms have increased in association with an area of low pressure over the central tropical Atlantic. Experts think the storm will eventually become a hurricane but it'll be out at sea and won't hit any land.

Asked about remarks by some Union leaders that henceforth talks with Pakistan would be only about Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) and not on Kashmir, Jaishankar said,"our position has, is and will always be very clear on PoK, that it is part of India and we expect one day we will have physical jurisdiction over it".

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Islamabad had told the Indian High Commission it was turning down India's request for Modi to fly across the country on Friday and for his return the following week.

New Delhi regretted the decision, Raveesh Kumar, a spokesman for the Indian government, said.

Qureshi said Modi had requested to use Pakistani airspace on September 20 and 28 for a trip to and from Germany.
