Washington, October 06, 2019 (PPI-OT): The US Democratic presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren, has expressed concerns over the restrictions and communication blockade in occupied Kashmir, urging India to respect the rights of the Kashmiri people.

Ms Elizabeth Warren in her tweet said, “The US-India partnership has always been rooted in our shared democratic values. I’m concerned about recent events in Kashmir, including a continued communications blackout and other restrictions. The rights of the people of Kashmir must be respected.” The Massachusetts Senator is the second influential American politician to raise concerns over Kashmir. Her statement comes a month after fellow Democrat Bernie Sanders expressed similar concerns.

Addressing the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America in Houston on September 1, Mr. Sanders said he was deeply concerned about the situation in occupied Kashmir and asked the US government to speak out boldly in support of UN-backed peaceful resolution to the dispute. “I am deeply concerned about the situation in Kashmir…India’s action is unacceptable,” he said while addressing one of the largest Muslim gatherings in the US.
