Human rights are arguably violated in almost every corner of the world, but for them to be continuously violated over decades in a democratic nation might be considered rare. However, this is the exact scenario in Jammu and Kashmir. The violations spreads over heinous acts of torture, arbitrary detention, imposition of curfews with internet service suspension and countless more violations of human rights present in international law as well as the Constitution of India. Due to its controversial geographic location, the state faces tension from two rival countries and it is due to this very tension, that people in this region suffer. This article aims to explore the history of the violations, show which rights are being violated and how the abrogation of Article 370 which initially gave hope as a silver lining, merely turned into a dark cloud for many. It then goes on to explore the global perspective and display the varying opinions of nations. The article ends with a call, urging people and the government to take measures that help in reducing the tension of this issue in order to ensure that humans everywhere can exercise their basic rights.
