The report said that Indian Army is proactively engaging with MEA and MHA to counter the propaganda.

New Delhi: Defence ministry in its annual report has admitted that Pakistan propaganda on Kashmir has received a “fillip” following report by the “Office of the United Nations Human Rights Commission.”

“Pakistan, with renewed vigour in 2018, orchestrated an international campaign on Kashmir through its sponsored proxies by trying to project law and order maintenance actions as trumped up human rights cases of excess use of force,” said defence ministry’s Annual Report 2018-19.

It said that Pakistan’s effort “to portray Kashmir issue has received a fillip, following the publication of two international reports by the Office of the United Nations Human Rights Commission and the British Parliaments ‘All Party Coordination Committee’.”

The report said that Indian Army is proactively engaging with MEA and MHA to counter the propaganda.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on human rights in a report on June 14, 2018, had accused Indian security forces of “excessive use of force”. This month, OHCHR in its “update,” flagged under reporting of rights violations cases, said that in “Indian-Admin-istered Kashmir,” accountability for violations committed by members of the security forces remains virtually non-existent.

The report also said that suspension of operations against terrorists in Kashmir by Centre on request of the state government last year during Ramzan was used by militants to strengthen their network.
