Pakistan has called upon the world community to play its role in ending the continued bloodshed of innocent people in Indian-held Kashmir (IHK) and also demanded a transparent probe into the grave human rights violations in IHK.
“The grave situation of human rights violations in IHK, growing atrocities and genocide of Kashmiris should be a matter of concern to the international community and the UN and warrants an immediate intervention to stop the bloodshed by India”, said Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria.
In a statement, the spokesperson conveyed the deepest condolences of the government and the people of Pakistan to the family of Junaid Ahmad, a 12-year-old boy who was shot dead by Indian forces in the IHK.
“The cold-blooded murder of Junaid Ahmad is worst example of state terrorism of the Indian government and is indeed deplorable,” he added.
He said the people of the Indian occupied Kashmir are demanding their fundamental human rights, especially the right to self determination, in accordance with UN Security Council Resolutions.
“We urge the international community to play its role towards ending the bloodshed in the IHK.
The culture of impunity for the occupation forces in IHK must come to an end,” he said, adding there should be a fair, independent and transparent inquiry into the grave human rights violations of innocent Kashmiri people.
In three months continued bloodshed by Indian occupation forces, he said that more than 115 innocent and defenceless Kashmiri people have been killed, over 15,000 are injured with scores in critical condition and several hundreds blinded due to use of pellet guns.
He further said that a humanitarian crisis, created by the Indian occupation forces through shortage of food, medicines, water and other basic amenities, has added to the Kashmiris’ plight and casualties. -Business Recorder
