Pakistan strongly condemns killing of youth by Indian forces in Kashmir


Islamabad, April 01 (KMW): Pakistan has condemned the brutal and indiscriminate use of force by the Indian occupation forces martyring young people in Indian-administered Kashmir. Foreign Office in a press release in Islamabad today said the incidents took place in Shopian and Anantnag.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Faisal expressing full solidarity with the people of Jammu and Kashmir urged the international community to take cognizance of the gross and systematic violations of fundamental human rights in IoK. The Spokesperson also called upon the world community to play rightful role in promoting just and lasting solution of Kashmir dispute in accordance with relevant UN Security Council resolutions and wishes of Kashmiri people.

He said the mindless killing spree exposes ugly and inhuman face of the Indian state-terrorism against Kashmiris for decades.

Foreign Office Spokesperson said there are also reports of continuing brutal crackdown, especially the use of pellet guns on protestors and suspension of internet services in an attempt to subjugate and further repress innocent Kashmiris. The Spokesperson said that Pakistan has repeatedly pointed out that the Kashmiri youth is being deliberately and systematically targeted with a view to breaking the will of the Kashmiri people.

He said that such cowardly actions of the occupying forces only serve to fortify the resolve of the resilient Kashmiri people.

He said any amount of Indian propaganda to paint the legitimate and indigenous Kashmiri struggle as terrorism can never succeed in misleading the world.

Meanwhile, Pakistan also strongly condemned the latest Houthi ballistic missile attacks on Saudi cities.

In a statement today (Sunday), the Foreign Office Spokesperson said that such missiles are increasingly threatening innocent lives and must cease.

He said Pakistan reiterates its full support and solidarity with Saudi Arabia against any threat to its territorial integrity and the Haramain Sharifain.

Earlier, Saudi Arabia’s air defense forces intercepted a missile fired by Houthi rebels from Yemen towards Najran city .
