Pakistan strongly condemns persistent killing spree by Indian troops in IIOJK

Islamabad, January 07 (KMS): Pakistan has strongly condemned the Indian occupation forces’ persistent killing spree resulting in martyrdom of three more Kashmiris today in Badgam district in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

The Foreign Office Spokesperson, Asim Iftikhar Ahmed, in a statement said Indian spate of state terrorism has raised the toll of extra-judicial killings to 11 in first seven days of the year. In fake encounters and so-called cordon-and-search operations (CASOs), Indian occupational forces martyred at least 210 Kashmiris in 2021, he said.

Pakistan calls on the international community to take immediate notice of the Indian state-terrorism in IIOJK and hold India accountable for the egregious human rights violations of the innocent Kashmiri people and Indian occupation forces must immediately stop their repulsive acts of state-terrorism in the IIOJK, the spokesperson said.

He said, the Indian government must be urged to allow unhindered access to the international human rights and humanitarian organizations and UN Special Mandate Holders to conduct independent investigations of human rights abuses in IIOJK.

The spokesperson added that Pakistan also urges the world community to play its role for a just and peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people for durable peace and stability in the region.
