Self-ruled congresswoman Ilhan Omar has advised Indian authorities in occupied Kashmir to respect human rights and to deescalate the quickly worsening situation in the undecided valley after India’s illegal and independent movement of August 5.

Ilhan Omer, one of the first two Muslim women elected to the United State Congress, is a member of her party’s progressive wing and a sharp detractor of President Donald Trump and of Israel’s policy toward the Palestinians.

Her reaction over the worsening human rights condition came hours after Donald Trump, who earlier offered to mediate between Pakistan and India over Kashmir, said on Monday that “Pakistan and India can handle the issue on their own, but I am here”.
