UN urged to ban use of pellet guns on protestors

Karachi: Brutal use of pellet guns by the Indian occupation forces on innocent civilian protestors of the occupied Kashmir is a plain violation of human rights and the United Nations (UN) should ban the use of pellet guns to disperse protestors not only in Kashmir but in whole world, demanded Aafia Movement Pakistan leader and noted neurophysician of the country Dr Fowzia Siddiqui here Monday.

In a statement on the occasion of the Kashmir Day, she regretted that the UN has failed to get implemented the resolutions on Kashmir passed by its security council. She said had the Pakistani rulers tried to get resolved the Kashmir Issue as per the vision of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, this issue would already have resolved a long ago.

She asked when we would show seriousness to get stopped the massacre, plunder and rape of the innocent Kashmiris including women and girls at the hand of the Indian occupation forces. She said it seems that we are content with to observe just a ‘day’ without taking efforts for helping the Kashmiris in winning freedom and attaining safety of life and property and getting prosperity, peace and development.

Dr Fowzia said national unity is necessary on the issues facing nation and country. She said if our politicians forge unity on the Kashmir Issue, this issue could be easily get resolved. She said the Kashmir Parliamentary Committee should play a proactive role to get the attention of the whole world diverted to the inhuman atrocities of the Indian occupation forces in the held Kashmir, adding it is not enough to hand over a resolution to a representative of the UN on the Kashmir Day.

Dr Fowzia regretted that countless Kahsmiri women, girls and children are being victimized by the Indian occupation forces. This grim situation demands a serious thinking and clear line of action from the peace-loving people as well as the human rights activists of whole world.

She demanded that more than 70000 innocent Kashmiris languishing in the Indian jails should be freed, and inhuman pallet gun firing on protestors should be banned in whole world.
