5:02 am
administered kashmir if you 100 gathered towards the anger against the indian government's decision to abolish its special status schmear the himalayan region disputed the pakistan. maybe you are no good still believe that don't get my appeal to the united nations to resolve this issue immediately otherwise we will go there to win freedom for our brothers. my opinion is to all muslims that if you have faith come out of your homes and stand the. members of pakistan's parliament in his normal voice their anger at india's decision to revoke autonomy and privileges for the contested muslim majority region prime minister announced on predicted that india will crack down even harder on the people he fears ethnic cleansing and called the ruling b.g.p. steps in line with the racist ideology. you took a little break here you. yank election manifesto this is not a decision that b j p have taken out of the blue it was part of their election
5:03 am
manifesto all along it is in fact ingrained in their ideology to put him above all other religions and seeks to establish a state that represses all other religious groups. it was a heated parliamentary session where the leader of the opposition says that pakistan has 2 choices now either to hide or take decisive action but people on both sides of the line of control of heard fiery speeches before the feeling here is on bread and inside he not knowing what is happening beyond these mountains in the indian administered side of the sheer remains cut off from the outside world pakistan's military leaders say they will go to any extent to fulfill their obligation to the kashmiri people on the army spokesman tweeted pakistan never recognize the indian efforts to be legalized to talk oppression of jammu and kashmir through article 370 or 35 a decades ago. and india have fought multiple wars over the territorial dispute there are fears that this latest move from india could provoke
5:04 am
another. artist on administered kashmir. well that's the view from pakistan but the decision to remove the administered status has received widespread support and india and its parliament has more. for the 1st time in decades here feeling optimistic because schmear hindu fled with his family from indeed administered kashmir in 1990 because of religious violence he's pleased with the indian government's decision to revoke the region's autonomy under article 370 but has his concerns if we are supposed to go back. the what shall we do what is. what shall we. and shall do in the city of the who will look after us and who wouldn't be a god part of. india's home minister let tuesday's charge for change in the lower
5:05 am
house of parliament with a bill passed easily thanks to the government's majority and support from the opposition members but many members of parliament say support for india in the kashmir valley has dried up following the government's revoking of the region's autonomy and splitting it into 2 federal territories even those who politically supported the indian government in the region are now lashing out this is not india that i believe. there is a democratic india taking on india. whatever your religion your region. the students studying in your new delhi are worried they've been scrambling to find a way to contact their families and friends in indeed administered kashmir without much success my main guns on that my parents even ok like they have been i don't know are they even alive. not knowing what they are going to do.
5:06 am
so i know what the problems but this is the highest this is the worst kind of situation that is happening. as many worry about their families in kashmir being cut off others are dreaming of a new beginning their fares jamil al jazeera new delhi now michael dunn is deputy director and senior associate for south asia at the wilson center and he says new delhi his decision is on democratic. there is a very strong sentiment in favor of independence so many of these people have suffered for so long thanks to the very heavy handed and brutal tactics of indian security forces the last thing that these people want is to be formally integrated with an indian state that they so despise so clearly and india knew that this is going to be a very risky move it would not have locked down the entire region if it didn't think that there would be unrest that could break out once this decision had been
5:07 am
taken i would argue that this move by india could even spark a new phase of insurgency in kashmir so i think that that suggest to me that the indians will try to drag out this lockdown i imagine and only in no immediate rush to ease its grip on the region of course even if it were to remove the lock down and ease its grip on cashmere as you know the indian security forces are always there so it may be very difficult for these kashmiris to express their discontent which of course will only sharpen their grievances that they harbor toward the indian state. now one of india's most well known female politicians former foreign minister so what are has died it's what i observed as foreign minister for 5 years she didn't join the prime minister narendra modi's cabinet and may because of health reasons she was known for her unwavering support of indians overseas but i've had a kidney transplant in 2016 but she died of a heart attack. let's move on to other news now the u.s.
5:08 am
says tough new sanctions will cut off funding from venezuela's president the us has frozen venezuelan government assets blocking all american companies and individuals from doing business with nicolas in other words government and its supporters to raise a boy reports from caracas. long lines in front of the peruvian consulate in caracas most of those who come here are desperate to leave the country. is a retired engineer she has been waiting for months to get an appointment because she says she cannot continue living year. i have a pension of 40000 bolivar's that i can buy 2 kilos of cheese my son is in peru and i'm going to live with him but i cannot get their. stories like mario when years are frequent in venezuela these days as the country struggles with an economic crisis that has forced millions out of the country for the united states and dozens
5:09 am
of other countries worldwide who are meeting in lima peru to finish political and economic change the united states and various will have historically had a strong bilateral relationship but that relationship started to deteriorate 20 years ago when socialist leader chavez took office and denounced what he called the united states interference in this country in the past month the situation has escalated even further the united states shut down its embassy here in cairo act after and announce harsher economic sanctions to go out of office. in the past the u.s. imposed sanctions on venezuelan individuals linked to my the us government and. venice way less state oil company accusing them of serious human rights abuses drug trafficking and corruption now they're taking things further by seizing venezuelan assets in the u.s. and banning u.s. companies from doing business in this country so basically one way to summarize
5:10 am
this to a business for example is do you want to do business in venezuela or do you want to do business with the united states and i think for any international corporations whether they're u.s. based european wherever they need to be to the boards of directors and shareholders they ought to be asking their management if it's worth risking for a trickle of income from the illegitimately dural government if it's worth risking their business in the united states if the government and the opposition are holding talks in barbados to try to find a way out of the crisis but in the end though we are acting on old necessary battlefronts to achieve a solution to the crisis which is what all been insulin's want the kingdom of norway's mechanism continues because what we are generating are the conditions for a real solution to the crisis but the government says that the latest sanctions are a full economic embargo and blames the us for the consequences it will have on the
5:11 am
population is. it is hypocritical to say that these so-called sanctions that these executive orders protect the purchases of medicines because it is only possible to buy them through transaction banks you have to pay for it but you can't because you can't use the international financial system. but for the thousands of people who continue to struggle to find a way to survive and men to the crises can't come soon enough. u.s. president dollar trump has shrugged off areas of a protracted trade war with china he says investment is flooding into america at the economy's strong he made the comments a day after the u.s. treasury accused china of currency manipulation a white house correspondent committee helka reports. a strong economic position that's the claim the trump white house made amid an intensifying trade war turned currency dispute between the united states and china america's job for business
5:12 am
america is open for business it's been a week of back and forth between the world's 2 largest economies of monday the us treasury accused china of currency manipulation following a sharp drop in the u.n. against the american dollar for filling a campaign promise made by u.s. president donald trump. the drop comes following more u.s. tariffs on chinese goods last week 10 percent on 300000000 products effect of september 1st china retaliated announcing its state run companies would stop buying u.s. agricultural products inflicting further strain on u.s. farmers but on twitter president trump argued the u.s. is benefiting from the economic tit for tat massive amounts of money from china and other parts of the world is pouring into the united states companies are also coming to the u.s. in big numbers this is
5:13 am
a transformative president. who is going in many places where prior presidents and both parties have feared to tread and i think part of that has to be trade. but the trade war has hurt american farmers already the u.s. government has put in place to aid packages to compensate. the billions in lost sales for products like soybeans and pork to china case and we hope to see fewer acts like this which serves no one's interests we also hope the us sticks to the facts and solves the us china economic and trade issue more rationally and practically rather than move further along the wrong path this is the white house says it's still working with china to negotiate what it calls the right deal it expects more talks with beijing in september kimberley health at al-jazeera the white house well let's get more on this we're joined by robert scott a saying international economist at the economic policy institute and he's joining
5:14 am
us from pushing back and marilyn very good to have you with us on al-jazeera so as they head more talks planned in september what do you think it would take to reach a breakthrough. but i don't think that these talks are going to be reaching a conclusion anytime soon chinese say that they can't. treat trump as a reliable bargaining partner and they appear to be settling in to wait him out saying no the election's going to be take taking place in about 16 months and they're willing to wait to see what happens next is about to get a better deal. is donald trump available boggling patna. i don't think it is you saw for example that he negotiated a trade trade agreement with mexico and the masons were actually voting on that agreement when the president's not decided to threaten to impose massive tariffs on
5:15 am
imports from mexico over a completely different issue having to do with. refugees arriving from central america right so you agree then with the us president also things that beijing might be trying to wait out as president say whether it's an 18 months or another 4 he is off to that but in the meantime as we expecting a breakthrough what impact do you think this trade will which will after all be a protracted if there isn't a breakthrough what is that going to do to the world's 2 largest economies and then the global economy. well i think it's important not to overstate the importance of this trade dispute. certainly that china is dependent on exports to the united states but they have played their ace in the hole by lowering the value of their currency some extent offsets the terrorists trump has imposed it lowers the price of china's exports american consumers are going to feel the bite and the
5:16 am
prices are going to go up somewhat it may lower the rate of growth g.d.p. by a few tenths of a percent i don't think it's enough to pitch the u.s. into recession so you're doing and you'll be hurt who will be hurt or multinational companies doing business in china so that's why you're seeing reflected in the sharp fall in the stock stock market say dog way then with various you know financial institutions who say that both both countries could be heading for a recession that we could see a global economic slowdown as a result of the trade bill. i think that's possible but i think it's going to be reasonable trade war to be. exact taking place for example in europe she's a much more significant the united states we ship much more europe than we did. joins a very. let's just call it that's very good to get your thoughts robert
5:17 am
scott live in maryland thank you. plenty more ahead on the news hour including donald trump prepares to visit the scene of the el paso mass shooting part of the city want him there. at least 8 people killed in syria's province after a ceasefire collapses and in sports tributes from teammates as riders paused to remember the belgian cyclist code during the 3rd stage of the tour of poland. the f.b.i. will now investigate the weekend's mass shooting in ohio it says the government expressed a desire to commit the shooting and had an interest in violent ideology and best again as we look at what influenced a 24 year old qana beds to open fire at a popular light life area and daytime on sunday he was wearing body armor and
5:18 am
killed mine people including his sister and about 30 seconds the f.b.i. will also investigate of anyone helped him or knew of his plan. we have uncovered evidence throughout the course of our investigation that the shooter was exploring violent ideologies and based upon this evidence were initially initiating an f.b.i. investigation side by side with the dayton police homicide investigation to make sure we get to the bottom and we explore everything and we try to understand the best we can why this horrific attack happened. well survivors from the mass shooting and possibly speaking out about their experience as president trump prepares to visit the city in texas but there are mixed feelings about his trip the congresswoman representing the district has refused an invitation to meet the president should be attending a protest instead rob reynolds reports from. in el paso each day
5:19 am
brings new stories of courage under fire it was mayor is only 9 years old but on saturday he likely saved his mother's life. in wal-mart a person started shooting my mom for those she couldn't move so i grabbed her hand and we ran outside and hid behind a truck. antone ollie's our day came face to face with the gunman and was shot in the foot it was my nephew made fun of me. with the details but who's. foregoing mitch. in that whole nobody ever questioned. 3 people president trump plans to visit el paso as well as dayton ohio on wednesday the local democratic party chairwoman has a message for him stay away unless you tell me to acknowledge that his language played a part again just having been witness to this massacre on saturday i don't think
5:20 am
that there's any need for him to tom and i think that will optional only causing more damage than talking unity if he doesn't trump has made restricting immigration the center of his political platform he has described mexicans as criminals and rapists he referred in obscene terms to countries whose people seek to enter the us and grinned at a rally when a supporter suggested shooting migrants holding says trump's words matter his language has consequences and we saw what those consequences would be that he said bad. immigrants aren't invaders and that's the exact same language that the shooter used in his essay that he wrote explaining his reasons for coming so since the beginning of the year the trump reelection campaign has posted more than 2000 immigration themed ads on facebook using the term invasion university of texas
5:21 am
el paso scholar daniel check on says words like that are packed with negative meaning to invade you know a country or region is to take it over to dominate it to be invaded by you know by another army is basically what you're saying they want to come in they want to take over they want to take what's ours but the el paso. look at party chairman says trump's words are not racist and that he is welcome. i think the president coming here to show that he's got concern i think is outstanding there's a lot of people in this community that support him certainly many in this city will welcome from with courtesy others however they feel it is he who is invading them rob reynolds el paso. a police chief in the u.s. state of texas has apologized after to watch officers on horseback let a black handcuffed man down a road by a road photos of the arrest have sparked widespread outrage galveston's police
5:22 am
chief says his offices showed poor judgment and should have waited for a transport unit she had from washington d.c. . 43 year old donal neely is bipolar he's homeless he's had several run ins with the police they know he's mentally ill in fact his family have been looking for him for some time to try and bring him back home he was arrested for criminal trespass on saturday and it was decided by the officers that this was the best way to deal with him because there wasn't a vehicle to transport or that is how attach a rope to the handcuffs and then leaving for 2 blocks by horseback be police say this is a normal routine measure that they use in volatile situations crowd control for example but of course this wasn't a volatile situation and now we have this apology from the police who say that they realize that a mistake was made that the officers they showed poor judgment but but the police
5:23 am
chief says that as far as he's concerned there's nothing malicious about it as far as we know no disciplinary action is being taken against the officers but time of heightened discussion about how white supremacy imbues us society at a time when we've long been looking at how the police deal with both african-americans and actually the mentally ill black people who are likely to be killed by the by. police officers don't work in fact a study came out just on monday from the national academy of sciences a black man as a one in 1000 drugs are being killed by a police officer the mentally ill have a 16 times more likely chance of being killed by a police officer than are known mentally ill person there's a lot to unpack in this photograph at this particular time that's not to say it's necessarily anything out of the ordinary but the difference is in this day and age these images go viral and that discussion then can ensue. well let's let's continue that decision real discussion rather we're joined by henry shelton he's the director of the national association for the advancement of colored people's washington bureau and
5:24 am
a senior vice president for advocacy and policy and he's joining us live from washington d.c. mr shelton very good to have you with us on al-jazeera as we heard from our correspondent a lot packed when we look at that image what did you think when you saw it. i think was quite offensive is something that beckons back to the days when african-americans were often rounded up like wild animals to someone as they do to a rope and then have him handcuffed behind his back and then have him poor down the street walking between 2 horses seem to bring back the old days of cowboy that is when those who are even presume to be a criminal without any in the criminal trial the wise designation were oftentimes actually punished even before there was an assessment of what was going on and in this particular case if this were a punishment it's one that would actually be considered illegal but as we look at
5:25 am
what happened in this case what we see again is an african-american man and 2 white police officers on horseback in a state like texas that seems to also revel in his old days of col boy is i'm in which they treated schuman beings of all these lives in many ways you see being treated much like an animal a cow or a bull being caught and been taken back to the corral is offensive well galveston police have said that the offices showed poor judgment but we haven't heard anything about whether they're going to face any kind of disciplinary action should they do you think it wasn't just poor judgment is this something big at play here. well absolutely we certainly treating it as if it's just some kind of anomaly but yet as we listen to those in the local area talk about how police officers and the relationship between communities of colors go where we see is someone that has a longstanding set of problems they're treating it as if it's just this this place
5:26 am
and with this person but what we've heard is that these kind of things happen quite often and as such what will be done to prevent this kind of activity from happening again not just the punishment of these police officers have been so outrageous and their handling of another human being but how we make sure the police officers treat anyone this being suspected of a crime in a very respectful way this is something we're going to have to look at we've heard them talk about no new policies we've heard no discussion about training we've had no discussion about oversight and prevention how do we make sure this doesn't happen what are we telling other police officers to learn from this awful mistake if indeed that's what they see a brain and is the kind of racial training that's needed for police offices taking place anywhere in the country that could be used as an example somewhere like texas . all of that there are plenty of places i'm here in the nation's capital in
5:27 am
washington d.c. and i have seen many demonstrations i've seen many interactions between law enforcement and individual citizens and even large groups of citizens and i've seen police departments is seen the function rather well and you sure teach texas and the townships quite a bit about how to interact with the diversity of people that very much live around them again what we need is policy what is the policy that should be enacted under circumstances like this number 2 how we see these police officers being trained to be consistent with those policies indeed this is what you're supposed to do and here's how you do it and finally for those that misbehave for those that move outside of what those policy restrictions are how to make sure those people are held accountable these 2 minutes are not going to be held accountable it's as it seems they're going to take them all perhaps you know put them on administrative leave for a few minutes which is the equivalent of
5:28 am
a paid vacation so in essence what we're saying this is they're simply the only thing they're upset about is is somehow or know this someone with a camera was able to capture this information and actually transmitted in other places throughout the country including right here in washington d.c. as this show is carrying throughout the world and we thank you very much for your time on this that is henry shelton live and washington. to be with you. still ahead on the news hour police arrest several people in hong kong as protests continue. fighting a bowler the democratic republic of congo and rwanda agree on a plan to tackle this outbreak in a border city and in sports for many captain wayne rooney is leaving the us off to signing as a player coach with 2nd tier anguish side county. hello
