Indian troops resorted to shelling of civilian population in the lower and upper belts of the Neelum Valley along the Line of Control (LoC) on Saturday. President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), Sardar Masood Khan, and Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider condemned the indiscriminate and indiscriminate bombing and called on the UN to play its part in tackling the central problem of lasting peace in the region.
The shelling left several houses destroyed and damaged, but fortunately, there were no casualties as most residents had taken refuge in bunkers or other safer places.
According to the statement issued here on Sunday, President Khan termed the Indian shelling a cowardly act, as well as an abortive attempt to divert the attention of the international community from the grave situation in held Kashmir.
Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider warned that the alarming situation along the LoC could escalate into a limited war, as India desperately wanted to sidetrack the international community’s attention from inside the locked-down the valley of Kashmir. The UN was under an obligation to rein in oppressive regimes unleashing terror in the territories under their unlawful occupation.
PM Haider said that skirmishes and artillery duels across the LoC would continue to occur unless the main problem is resolved and “if the United Nations does not play the role that the oppressed Kashmiris expect of it, the situation in this region will remain volcanic and no country will ever open an era of peace and development.”
