As Pakistani artists are calling out massive human rights violations in Kashmir, ‘Daish Bakhts‘ like Bollywood’s Anupam Kher are encouraging it. Apparently Kher is okay with calling for genocide of Kashmiris, gleefully referring to the recent happenings as the ‘Kashmir solution‘.
Here is what he tweeted recently:
Kashmir Solution has begun.🇮🇳

What Is India Doing In Kashmir?
Despite protests from within the Indian parliament, Bhartia Janata Party’s (BJP) Home Minister Amit Shah wiped the Indian Constitution’s Article 370 and Article 35 A. Both these legal clauses acknowledged Kashmir’s disputed status and granted it special status.
This means that before, Kashmir was not considered as another province of India. Unfortunately, India wants to change this now.
BJP is calling this their ‘final Kashmir Solution’ in an attempt to ‘mainstream Kashmir’. This isn’t even the half of it. The ‘mainstreaming’ will involve mass genocide of Kashmiris as 40,000 additional Indian troops are being deployed to Kashmir to pave the way.
Additionally, Indians can now purchase land in Kashmir and kick out the natives of the land, just like what is happening in Palestine.
Sending 40,000 more troops to Kashmir (the MOST militarised place on earth), imposing a curfew, stopping internet, placing elected representatives under house arrest, asking tourists/foreigners to leave: all this psych-ops for what savagery + chest-thumping? #KashmirBleeds

While Modi is after Art35a, why is he silent over restrictions on buying land by Indians in Himachal, Sikkim, Arunachal, Nagaland, Mizoram & Manipur? Moreover, any Indian can travel to #Kashmir, NOT to Arunachal, Mizoram & Nagaland without Inner Line Permit. #KashmirBleeds

Anupam Kher Is Calling for Genocide
While progressive Indians are appalled by the Indian government’s declaration of disputed territory Jammu and Kashmir as an Indian state. People like Anupam Kher are calling it the ‘Kashmir solution.‘ The tweet was undoubtedly inspired by Hitler’s ‘final solution‘.

No memory loss. Have reported on the Kashmiri pandits & the horror they faced. But, you seem to want revenge genocide Mr Kher. No Indian should want that https://t.co/vzUxNVoLoo

Even the controversial American conspiracy theorist Alex Jones did not shy away from calling this what it is, a form of neo-Nazism.

Responsible Indian citizens and Kashmiris are not shying away from calling out this call to genocide.
You spelled genocide wrong. https://t.co/faOFgIY0vK

BJP’s mainstreaming of Kashmir is aimed at fortifying territory, not integrating people.
Shame on you ! An undeclared war against your own people remains both politically and ethically unjustifiable in any civilized democracy . https://t.co/zp3fqxydWj

This evil man claims to be a Kashmiri & he's thrilled by an impending genocide. The bloodthirst in this "peaceful community" is simply beyond belief. https://t.co/5NgXrbpQQO

There were plenty of references to Nazism, because that’s what comes to mind when we think of mass ethnic cleansing.
Sounding like hitler!! https://t.co/rE9iH5spnO

One South Asian observer pointed out how the lack of coverage on the issue now is a prelude to the fact that this genocide will not be listed as the second Reich in history. After all, Modi’s been accepted as a head of state twice now despite his war crimes case in the International Criminal Court (ICC) following him masterminding and ordering the Gujrat Muslim cleansing.
The Kashmiris will survive, just like the Jews did, because Indians are not even a tenth as competent as Germans.
But Modi's Reich will be consigned to the dustbin of history, and will only be a small footnote when future historians describe the 21st century. https://t.co/4YsIBQqDTI

Another case in the ICC may not make a difference. No one stood up for Rohingya Muslims amidst their genocide in Myanmar for years, either.
Hitler had also a ‘Final Solution’! Nuremberg is not needed, there is already an ICC at The Hague. https://t.co/QY2VYUOqMB

Of course, Pakistanis had to highlight this blatant condoning of genocide.
Just a reminder your fav bollywood artists have shown public support for modi, the indian military and therefore the occupation of kashmir, some even admitting it openly like this. For many other reasons too, please stop supporting this insidious industry. https://t.co/G0APKbbsTQ

This reprehensible turd has been tweeting shit for years now, but still chills me to the bone to see how he is brazenly, unapologetically cheering on genocide here. The dehumanization of the people of Kashmir for such people in India is barely believable. https://t.co/qiKZfXghF3

You are such a disgusting person & called your self a human? Killing innocent kids, women & teenagers which you called a solution of Kashmir? We all stand with the innocent people of Kashmir, the UN & OIC must take action. https://t.co/4HcWVOgI1b

Yes, this man is a United Nations ambassador for gender equality. Ironically while he’s an advocate for gender equality he can’t see past ethnicity and religion.

This is a poorly thought out tweet, one that normalizes hate and violence against an entire region. Anupam Kher should have known better.
