US Congressional Caucus to convene hearing on Kashmir

Washington DC: A US Congressional Caucus on human rights will hold a hearing this week on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir following India's decision to revoke its special status, but some observers have raised suspicion over its intentions saying witnesses on the panel are well known India bashers.

Announcing the hearing, the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission said "Witnesses will examine the human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir in the context of the region's history and larger patterns of rights violations in India and Pakistan, and will offer recommendations for action by Congress."

The Commission has invited Anurima Bhargava, Commissioner, US Commission on International Religious Freedom as witness in the first panel for the hearing on Wednesday, November 13.
