After PM Modi, NHRC Chief Now Bats For Home Minister Shah

New Delhi: India’s National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) chief Arun Mishra said on Tuesday that Union Home Minister Amit Shah propelled a “new era in Jammu and Kashmir”.

Justice Arun Mishra said this at an event addressed by both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah. Justice Mishra went on to say that it had become the “norm” to accuse India of human rights violations, fuelled by international forces.

“It is for you, Mr Shah, that a new era has now begun in Jammu and Kashmir,” Justice Mishra was quoted as saying by NDTV at the start of an event to mark 28 years of the NHRC.

“It is now a norm to accuse India of human rights violation at the behest of international forces,” he further said.

“Some people see human rights violations in some incidents but not in other similar incidents. Human rights are violated when viewed via political spectacles. Selective behaviour is harmful to democracy,” the Prime Minister said in his speech.

The former Supreme Court judge was referring to the government’s move to withdraw special status for Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 and downgrade it into two Union Territories more than two years ago.

Interestingly, Justice Mishra, as a sitting judge last year, had called PM Modi a “versatile genius” and an “internationally acclaimed visionary who can think globally and act locally”.
