Politics: (World community should help end Indian siege of IIOJ and K: Bilawal)


ISLAMABAD:Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said the military siege of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ and K) would not conquer the aspirations of people of the bleeding valley.

In his message in connection with the Youm-e-Istehsal on Wednesday, he said the world community should use its leverage on the apartheid state of India to end the one year long siege and give access to the international human rights monitors in the occupied territory.

The PPP leader said the silence maintained by the international community over Indian atrocities in IIOJ and K had raised the concerns of human rights activists worldwide. He urged that the world should wake up from slumber and force India to lift the siege by allowing free exercise of right to self-determination to Kashmiri people.
