ISLAMABAD, Aug 11 (APP): Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz has written a letter to the Secretary General of Arab League, highlighting horrific Indian brutalities in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The Adviser underscored that India has unleashed a reign of terror against the innocent and defenseless civilians since the extrajudicial killing of a young Kashmiri leader Burhan Wani on July 8, 2016, a press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs here on Thursday said.

The Adviser also emphasized that the current situation in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir was the result of the continued denial by India of the right to self-determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir that was promised to them by the United Nations Security Council in the relevant resolutions.

It was emphasized that the current uprising was not an isolated incident but a manifestation of continued deep, widespread and long-held alienation of the oppressed people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir from the Indian occupation.

The Adviser said that the spontaneous and massive uprising was a manifestation that Kashmir struggle was totally indigenous which cannot be equated with terrorism.

The Arab League countries were urged to call upon India to immediately stop the bloodshed and massacre in IOK and implement the pending UN Security Council resolutions on Kashmir.
