FM condemns killing of Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Kashmir


ISLAMABAD, Oct 22 (APP):Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Monday strongly condemned the horrific killing of more than 10 innocent Kashmiris at the hands of Indian forces in its continued act of state terrorism in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IoK).

“The people of IoK are being victimized to quell their struggle for the realization of their legitimate right to self-determination. Pakistan mourns, with its brothers and sisters in IoK, on this unabated killing spree and salutes the courage and commitment of the people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir,” the Foreign Minister said in a press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Foreign Minister Qureshi said the international community needed to take swift action against human rights violations in IoK by the Indian occupation forces.

“Pakistan calls upon the international community to take cognizance of human rights violations in IoK as well as the OHCHR Report on Jammu and Kashmir, immediately urge India to stop the bloodshed in IoK and allow the OHCHR’s Commission of Inquiry to visit IoK and investigate,” he added.
