India's growing belligerence seems to know no bounds; its troops have been targeting civilian populations, killing and maiming civilians, including children and women.

What India has been doing at the Line of Control is nothing but an attempt aimed at diverting global attention from the continuing grave human rights violations in Illegally Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIJ&K). The atrocities being committed by Indian troops inside IIJ&K are beyond imagination.

The global community is therefore required to take notice of India's reprehensible aggression immediately. US President-elect Joe Biden, has already asked India to "take all necessary steps to restore rights for all the people of Kashmir [IIJK], adding the restrictions on dissent, such as preventing peaceful protests or shutting or slowing down the Internet, weaken democracy". President-elect Biden must censure the BJP government for India's growing belligerence.
