Srinagar: Iltija Mufti, the daughter of detained Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti has expressed relief at the resolutions passed against CAA and restrictions in Kashmir in the European Union Parliament.
Iltija who is operating her mother’s Twitter handle also hoped that the resolutions are followed by sanctions. “Relieved to see EU parliament pass resolutions against communal CAB & brutal lockdown in Kashmir. Hope it’s followed up with sanctions. GOIs actions are frittering away all of India’s assiduously earned soft power.” She wrote.
A total of six resolutions have been tabled by groups within the European Union (EU), including the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament (S&D), Group of the European People’s Party (Christian Democrats) (PPE), Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance (Verts/ALE), European Conservatives and Reformists Group (ECR), Renew Europe Group (Renew) and European United Left/Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL) Group.
The EU Parliament is set to debate on the resolutions tabled by a large chunk of its members, saying the enactment of the new law “marked a dangerous shift in India’s citizenship regime”.
India has strongly rieterated that restrictions in Kashmir and Citizenship amendment act (CAA) are entirely internal to New Delhi.
In another tweet while reacting to Indian reaction to EU resolutions she said,. “Discriminatory CAB & repressive measures in Kashmir are India’s internal matter only when EU Parliamentarians/ international community condemn such actions. Had they spoken about it in glowing terms, the same establishment would lap it up.”
