Pakistan condemns extra-judicial killing of 4 Kashmiri youth in IIOJK

Islamabad, October 21 (KMS): Pakistan has condemned in the strongest possible terms the reported martyrdom of four young Kashmiris recently in the ongoing brutal campaign of extra-judicial killings in staged encounters and fake cordon and search operations by Indian forces in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The Foreign Office Spokesperson, Asim Iftikhar, In a statement in Islamabad said that India’s desperate attempts to malign the just and indigenous struggle for self-determination of Kashmiris by whipping up the terrorism bogey, will never succeed.

He said having failed to address the indigenous freedom struggle, India is using unabated anti- Pakistan blame game as a smokescreen for diverting world attention from India’s state-terrorism and systematic human rights violations in IIOJK.

The Spokesperson said, Pakistan has repeatedly drawn the attention of the international community to India’s sinister designs of staging “false flag” operations aimed at implicating Pakistan and Kashmiris.

He called upon India to halt its state-sponsored terrorism, stop human rights violations, lift the inhumane military siege and let the people of IIOJK exercise their right to self- determination as promised to them by the relevant UN Security Council resolutions.
