Islamabad, March 13 (KMS): Pakistan has condemned the illegal shutting down of an educational institute by Indian occupation forces in Indian Illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
India has reportedly shut down Darul Uloom Khadijatul Kubra, an educational institute in IIOJK. The Indian occupation forces gate-crashed Darul Uloom on Friday, insulted and maltreated the female students and forcefully evicted them before sealing the educational institution, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Office of the Spokesperson) press statement said.
This illegal act is a fresh reflection of how the Indian occupation forces are making a mockery of the fundamental rights of Kashmiri girls seeking education. It also points towards growing Islamophobia, a phenomenon which is on the surge not only in Indian Illegally occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK) but also in India, the statement added.
Denying Muslim girls access to education, may that be in IIOJK or in Karnataka, is a new low under a far-rightHindutva-inspired regime in India, the statement added.
Deafening silence of the BJP leadership and absence of discernible action against ‘Hindutva’ proponents must send alarm bells across the international community about the gross and systematic human rights violations being perpetrated by India, the statement added.
Pakistan called upon the international community, including the United Nations and OIC, especially their human rights machinery, to take immediate notice of the worrying level of Islamophobia in India and prevail upon Indian authorities to prevent systematic human rights violations against minorities particularly Muslims in India.KMS—12K
