New Delhi also lodged a strong protest with the United Nations, saying the government is "deeply concerned that individual prejudices are being allowed to undermine the credibility of a UN institution." 
In its 49-page report, the UN's Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights focused on both Jammu and Kashmir (consisting of the Kashmir Valley, the Jammu and Ladakh regions) and Pakistan-Administered Kashmir (Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan).
The UN also asked Pakistan to end its "misuse" of anti-terror legislation to persecute peaceful activists and quash dissent.
