Summary of Comparative Analysis of East Timor and The Kashmir Issue:
Kashmir has three major cultural areas: Ladakh in the northwest, which is majority Buddhist; the Kashmir Valley (controlled by India) and the part now ruled by Pakistan, which is majority Muslim, and Jammu (in the south), which is majority Hindu.
East Timor: The victorious intervention in East Timor has been considered an example of how military forces can be used to stop large-scale and organized attacks against a defenseless civilian population whose essential human rights have been bloodily infringed (Human Rights Watch 2000).
Kashmir: The United States would be the most relevant third party that could intervene to help resolve outstanding issues including Kashmir between India and Pakistan.
There is a widespread perception that the Australian mass media were a central part of a popular outburst of support for East Timor last September, which lead to an apparent historical turn around in Australian government policy towards the territory, that is, from accepting Indonesian claims of sovereignty to militarily intervening to ensure East Timor’s independence.

The UN resolutions on this issue were not self-enforceable but rather infect they were of recommendatory in nature which must be actualized by the concerned states which are India and Pakistan separately however because of the adjustment in position of the Indian Government on the issue of Kashmir and declining to give Kashmiris the privilege of choice in spite of promising it in their white paper on Kashmir in 1948 lead to the stop and ended the usage of these resolutions.
EAST TIMOR United Nations Security Council determination 1246, received consistently on 11 June 1999, subsequent to reviewing passed resolutions on East (Timor Leste), especially Resolution 1236 (1999), the Council built up the United Nations Mission in East Timor (UNAMET) to arrange and lead the East Timor Special Autonomy Referendum on the future status of East Timor, booked for August 1999.
Batta chu marun”, where Batta alludes to neighborhood non-Muslims, marun is to murder, subsequently ‘The nearby non-Muslim must be executed’ however east Timor being itself a country of Muslim majority received tremendous support from Muslim world and after 25 years UN forced Indonesia to leave east Timor.
Addressing Jammu and Kashmir’s impunity problem, and indeed India’s attitude towards impunity, is a challenge; but it is essential to ensure justice to victims of human rights violations, and facilitate the healing process for those who have suffered during the course of Jammu and Kashmir’s decades of struggle and alienation.
