Raqib Hameed Naik- is a Kashmir based Journalist working as an International Correspondent with the US-based The Globe Post. He primarily focuses on conflict and human rights. Over the years, he has extensively reported on human rights abuses by the Indian state in Kashmir including enforced disappearances and lethal use of non-lethal weapons. The US Commission for International Religious Freedom has consistently placed India in the Tier 2 of the "Countries of Particular Concern” with respect to religious freedom. In December 2019, India’s Parliament passed, and its President signed into law, the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), 2019. For the first time in independent India’s history, a religious criterion has been added to the country’s naturalization process. Reports of Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have painted a disturbing picture of a polity that is complicit in mass violation of human rights and religious freedom.
