Foreign Office spokesperson Aisha Farooqui in a statement on Tuesday, rejecting Indian allegations of indigenous Kashmir resistance and said India could not mislead the international community with its unfounded allegations and aggressive actions on the ground.
FO spokesperson said the recent incidents in occupied Kashmir are reflective of the inescapable reality that India’s brutal campaign of violence and repression is meeting its logical consequences.
She said, attributing this indigenous Kashmir resistance to any so-called “infiltration” is a travesty, adding that the typical allegations of “infiltration” from India also sound hollow because all of these incidents occurred in deeper in the valley, several kilometers behind the vast infiltration grid of the Indian army, comprising several layers of security.
Ayesha Farooqui said that the population of occupied Kashmir had suffered from an inhuman lockdown and a military siege for more than nine months, following the illegal and unilateral actions of India on August 5, 2019. The whole region was turned into a prison, the Indian occupation forces acting with impunity under draconian laws such as the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), Public Safety Act (PSA), and Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
She said Indian forces are deliberately targeting unarmed Pakistani civilians, including women and children across the Line of Control (LoC), using the pretext of so-called “infiltration” and “launch pads.
According to the statement, in over 975 unprovoked ceasefire Violations by India since 1 January 2020, six innocent civilians have lost their lives and another 69 have been critically injured. This inhuman war tactic cannot be condemned enough.
The spokesperson maintained that Indian insinuations against Pakistan are patently designed to divert international as well as domestic attention from India’s grave human rights violations in occupied Kashmir, the treatment of Indian minorities, and mismanagement by the BJP government of Covid-19 related challenges.
