G20 Boycott In Srinagar
May 21, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / World News
A number of G20 nations have either declined to attend a tourist conference due to start in Srinagar on Monday or have not yet confirmed their attendance, dealing a significant blow to India’s efforts to normalize its disputed annexation of occupied Kashmir.
As a result of its foreign ministry spokesperson declaring that his nation “is firmly opposed to holding meetings in disputed territory,” China has taken the initiative in boycotting the event in the occupied zone.
Additionally, according to Indian media, neither Turkey nor Saudi Arabia, two other G20 members who were invited as guests but have not yet confirmed their attendance, nor has Egypt, a non-member of the group but who has not yet submitted a registration form.
It is encouraging to see that these countries have bravely acted in support of the oppressed people of Kashmir.
While Srinagar may be a beautiful location for a tourism conference, all conscientious nations should avoid what is still recognized internationally as a disputed territory due to the suffocating footprint of India’s occupation and the blood of countless Kashmiris shed by Indian forces.
According to reports coming from the seized zone, India is making every effort to “sanities” the environment. Mehbooba Mufti, a former chief minister of IHK, claims that India has carried out “unprecedented… raids, arrests, surveillance, and persecution” in advance of the G20 summit.
According to a recent report by the UN’s special rapporteur on minority rights, India sought to normalize the “brutal and repressive denial” of Kashmiri Muslims’ rights by holding the meeting in Srinagar, and the G20 was “unwittingly providing a veneer of support” for India’s abuses of human rights in the disputed territory.
After annexing the territory in 2019, India’s leaders arrogantly believe that Kashmir is not a topic on the world agenda. However, many people in New Delhi will get a harsh awakening when influential G20 members react to this normalization of profession.
While it is true that realpolitik and a lack of moral principles mostly control the international system, certain major actors are nevertheless prepared to speak up for oppressed peoples all around the world.
What is especially regrettable is that the G20’s Western members, who have been sobbing uncontrollably over Russia’s conquest of Ukraine, have happily endorsed India’s colonization of Kashmir.
