The curfew in the entire Indian Jammu and Kashmir is nearing to its third week. India laid down the siege on Kashmir after New Delhi scrapped the autonomy of the UN declared disputed region earlier this month. Fearing a violent public reaction, India enforced a curfew in its part of this Muslim majority region which is divided between Pakistan and India.

There are reports of growing incidents of rape and torture of women in a seemingly-unending crackdown by the Indian military.

A surge in human rights abuses has also led the US-based human rights monitor, Genocide Watch, to issue an emergency genocide alert.

Genocide Watch warned that the widespread violations of fundamental human rights in Kashmir are clear indications of an impending genocide.

Genocide Watch has called on the UN and its member states to warn India not to commit genocide in Kashmir.
