Thank you, Representative McGovern for holding the Indian government accountable for its actions in Kashmir. If India continues to claim itself to be the world’s largest democracy then it must answer for its gross violation of democratic values and ideals. Continued pressure from the U.S., like you, have exhibited in your letter, is necessary to ensure if we are to ensure freedom and safety for 14 million Kashmiris in the region. We applaud your tenacity in seeking justice and ask that you continue to pressure the Indian government to answer for the thousands of boys arbitrarily detained, allow free access to foreign journalists and U.S. officials like yourself, and a complete restoration of communication for all of its citizenry.
