Foreign Office on Tuesday said Pakistan strongly condemned the extra-judicial killing of 13 Kashmiris in a single day by Indian occupation forces in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K), ramping up tensions between Islamabad and New Delhi.
According to the statement of Foreign Office, Pakistan was deeply concerned over unabated extra-judicial killings of Kashmiri youth in fake encounters and so-called “anti-infiltration” operations.
It said that “while the international community is preoccupied with fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, India is busy intensifying its brutalisation of the Kashmiri people,” adding that the killing of the Kashmiris speaks volumes about Indian government’s continuing crimes against humanity.
The Foreign Office said “To hide these crimes, the Indian authorities use the oft-repeated, unsubstantiated allegations of “training” and “infiltration” of Kashmiri resistance fighters.”
“India must realize that its malicious propaganda carries no credibility with the international community. The RSS-BJP combine stands exposed before the world for its illegal and inhuman actions and extremist ‘Hindutva’ agenda.”
The Foreign Office added, “India must realize that neither can its brutalisation break the will of the Kashmiri people nor can its anti-Pakistan propaganda divert attention from India’s state-terrorism and egregious violations of human rights in occupied Kashmir.”
“Kashmiris will never give up their inalienable right to self-determination as enshrined in the UNSC resolutions and the leadership and people of Pakistan will never flinch in their commitment of full support for the Kashmiris towards that end.”
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs further urged the international community to take immediate steps to prevent India from committing serious crimes against the Kashmiri people and to hold it accountable under international law and relevant human rights conventions.
