Pakistan’s foreign minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif has said that the history of Muslims’ massacres in India’s Gujarat is being repeated in occupied Kashmir.
“We will send delegations to different countries to make the world aware of Indian atrocities in Kashmir”, Khawaja Muhammad Asif told news conference in the capital, on Monday.
Referring to Sunday’s massacre of Kashmiri youth by Indian forces, he said that New Delhi was engaged in state-sponsored terrorism in the occupied valley, and said that the Indian state is ‘playing holi with the blood of Kashmiris.’
He announced that Pakistan would observe Kashmiri solidarity day on April 6 (Friday) .
This is going to be second Kashmir Solidarity being observed in Pakistan In a year after the one on February 5.
Khawaja Muhammad Asif said that Pakistan would continue its political, moral and diplomatic support to Kashmiris.
“ Pakistan’s forces have all the strength to pay back in the same coin in case some one tries to impose war,” Foreign Minister said.
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has also expressed deep shock and grief at the indiscriminate, vicious killing of more than seventeen Kashmiri youth in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir by the Indian forces. The brutal crackdown, including the despicable use of pellet guns on civilians who were protesting against the killing is deplorable.
Strongly condemning the gross inhuman violations of the basic human rights of innocent Kashmiris, including the basic human right to life and health, the Prime Minister emphasised that Indian attempts to label the legitimate Kashmir struggle terrorism cannot deter the valiant people of Jammu and Kashmir from their demand of exercising their right to self determination in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions.
The Prime Minister stressed the need for the international community to urge India to allow access to fact finding missions of the OHCHR and OIC IPHRC to Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir . He also called upon the UNSC Secretary General to appoint a special representative for Jammu & Kashmir, where India, encouraged by the silence of the international community, continues to kill with impunity.
