Islamabad, April 02, 2018 (PPI-OT):Prime Minister of Pakistan Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has expressed deep shock and grief at the indiscriminate, vicious killing of more than 17 Kashmiri youth in Indian Occupied Kashmir by the Indian forces. The Prime Minister said that the brutal crackdown, including the despicable use of pellet guns on civilians who were protesting against the killing is deplorable.
Strongly condemning the gross inhuman violations of the basic human rights of innocent Kashmiris, including the basic human rights to life and health, the Prime Minister emphasised that Indian attempts to label the legitimate Kashmir struggle terrorism cannot deter the valiant people of Jammu and Kashmir from their demand of exercising their right to self-determination in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions.
He stressed the need for the international community to urge India to allow access to fact finding missions of the OHCHR and OIC IPHRC to Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir. He also called upon the UNSC Secretary General to appoint a special representative for Jammu and Kashmir, where India, encouraged by the silence of the international community, continues to kill with impunity.
