An Indian diplomat has come under fire after the suggestion to enforce an “Israeli model’’ relocating Hindus into the disputed territory of Kashmir. Many circles are demanding his resignation.

The provocative proposal from Sandeep Chakravorty was presented in a private gathering in front of Kashmiri Hindus. These Kashmiri Hindus are known as ‘Pundits’, who have been feeding violence in the region in the 1970s.

The speech was caught on video and shared widely on social media.

“I believe the security conditions in Jammu and Kashmir will improve. It will allow refugees to go back and in your lifetime, you will be able to go back… because we already have a model in the world,” Chakravorty told the audience, apparently, referring to Israeli settlements.

He further added, “I don’t know why we don’t follow it. It has happened in the Middle East, you have to look if the Israeli people can do it. We can also do it”.

140 Settlements in an Arab Majority Territory:

Israel has constructed some 140-settlements blocks in an Arab-majority territory. These settlements were done during the six-day war in 1967. Since then, it has maintained a military occupation.

Human rights advocates around the world have considered settlements to violate international law. Last week, however, the US State Department accepted the settlements as lawful.
