ISLAMABAD - Repeating its longstanding 'legacy of having clung to an ever-dormant disposition when it comes to highhandedness from powerful corridors, the United Nations has yet to utter a word on the discovery of thousands of unmarked graves in Indian Held Kashmir. From the regrettable apathy of the UN in Pakistan to the habitual silence of the relevant UN human rights bodies elsewhere, the international body is yet to grow out of its self-created shell of the so-called 'neutrality to wake up to the issues that particularly pertain to human rights. Not a word of condemnation, an official statement, a press briefing or any call to launch a probe on the aforesaid subject has come from the UN Pakistan, United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNOHCHR) and the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). On August 21 the last, Jammu-Kashmir State Human Rights Commission (JKSHRC), a state-run fact-finding commission had disclosed that unmarked graves containing bullet-riddled bodies of innocent Kashmiris were found in IHK. The development was unprecedented since a Commission that was formed by the Indian government in 1997 following international communitys pressure had finally stood up against its own government to report the reality. This stirred bone-chilling ripples in different cross sections of the domestic and international societies with human right watchdogs, international observers and socio-political diaspora at large coming up with condemnations. But the UN bodies, like it always happens in IHK, are yet to be considerate enough so as to devote their privileged focus over a genuine humanitarian cause. When approached by this newspaper, the (UNOHCHR) spokesperson in Geneva Rupert Colville said that he would look into the matter and get back to this newspaper 'in a while, which did not happen till filing of this report. Im in the middle of something. Let me look into this and Ill get back to you in a while, he said. Reminders were given to the UN official with a call and a text message that went unanswered and unreturned. The UNMOGIP Regional Spokesperson in New Delhi Rajiv Chandran expressed ignorance regarding any proposed line of action to be adopted by the UN on the issue of unmarked graves in IHK. He did not comment on why the UNMOGIP did not take up the matter as yet. Sorry I cant say anything, was his response. The UN Pakistan habitually shies away from 'hard-hitting queries and does not comment on matters pertaining to IHK. Sources in UNMOGIP offices in Islamabad and Muzaffarabad confirmed that no official correspondence, till Wednesday night, had ever taken place between the UNMOGIPs all the four offices located in Srinagar, New Delhi, Islamabad and Muzaffarabad, regarding rising HR abuses in IHK against the backdrop of the newly found unmarked graves. Some days back, Chairman All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC), Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, in a conversation with TheNation, had demanded of the UN, International Court of Justice (ICJ), International Criminal Court (ICC) and other HR watchdogs to take toll of the situation. Enough is enough The international community should rise above passing titular resolutions in UN Security Council that have proved useless in stopping Indian aggression, he had said. According to Hurriyat leaders, 10436 Kashmiri youths are missing since 1989 majority of whom is feared dead. Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) formed by the parents of the disappeared youths in IHK stages protests and demonstrations against the state-sponsored kidnappings and tortures on a regular basis.
