MIRPUR, Nov 06 (APP):AJK President Sardar Masood Khan said that India is scared of the economic progress
of the country due to China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Talking to media, the President said that our foremost priority must be to raise awareness on the human rights violations taking place in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK). India is committing war crimes in Kashmir and the international community must raise their voice against the
humanitarian crisis unfolding in IOK, he underlined.
“We need to take action against these
violations in view of the international humanitarian laws, Geneva Conventions,
UN Human Rights Charter and conventions that govern human rights”, he added.
He said India is an occupation force which has
unlawfully claimed sovereignty illegally jailed Kashmiris, used innocent
Kashmiris as human shields by tying them to their vehicles, changing the local
demography by using unconstitutional tactics and forcefully vacating properties.
The President said that this Indian occupation cannot continue in perpetuity as
it is illegal and criminal.
To a question, he said that this project has opened a new era of economic growth and opportunity. The
CPEC project will be pivotal in bringing around prosperity to the country and
the region. “We will not allow any power to sabotage the CPEC project and any Indian conspiracy to disrupt it”, he remarked.
The President lamented that the international community is appeasing India by not intervening
action against the atrocities is unfortunate; this culture of silence and
appeasement should come to an end.
