Tomorrow, Indian officials will be taking a delegation of 28 European Parliament members drawn mainly from extreme far right parties for a one-day tour of Kashmir. It is not an official EU visit but is at the invitation of an unidentified NGO backed by the Indian government. The group met with Modi today where he discussed the need to take action against terrorism in Kashmir. Indian media reports suggest that the delegation will ‘debunk propaganda by Pakistan that there is a humanitarian crisis in Kashmir’.
This tour is reminiscent of the several European fascist delegations often received by Assad. Or is it more like the tours of American schoolchildren before the Civil Rights Movement who took bus tours around Indian reservations to stare at the Indians like they were monkeys in the zoo?
Demand the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of all Indian troops from Kashmir.
