    VP/HR — Kashmir rape case

    Question for written answer E-002805-18
    to the Commission (Vice-President/High Representative)
    Rule 130
    Barbara Matera (PPE)

    An 8-year-old Muslim girl from a nomadic community was raped and killed by six Indian men. India has accepted significant legal reforms with regard to sexual assault and rape, but there are still major shortcomings. Multiple police and Indian government officials have tried to stop the arrest of these men. The police’s excuse for defending a group of child rapists was that it was an effort to drive the Muslim population out of the area.

    This is an unacceptable act. How can the VP/HR express our utmost revulsion at this act?

    How can the Commission encourage religious tolerance in Kashmir and the areas surrounding it?
