Message from Mamnoon Hussain President of Pakistan on the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day

Official News Press Information Department

Islamabad, April 06, 2018 (PPI-OT): The Government and the people of Pakistan reaffirm their continued and resolute moral, diplomatic and political support to the oppressed people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir in their valiant struggle for the fundamental right to self-determination. The recent mindless killing spree carried out by the Indian security forces that took away lives of more than 20 Kashmiri youth and injured in excess of 200 unarmed protestors, are a testament to the atrocities being perpetrated against innocent Kashmiris.

In their historic struggle, the courageous and determined people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir have rendered unparalleled sacrifices. Indian State Terrorism has failed to deter the people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir from their struggle for freedom from Indian oppression.

Pakistan calls upon the international community to be cognizant of its responsibilities in the matter and urge India to facilitate the visit by independent fact finding teams of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC) to look into the gross human rights violations in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir being perpetrated by Indian occupation forces; and to fulfill its obligations under the UN Security Council resolutions on Kashmir.
