Pakistan condemns India’s extrajudicial killings in IIOJK

Islamabad, October 02 (KMS): Pakistan has strongly condemned the continued extrajudicial killings by Indian forces in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The Foreign Office Spokesperson in a statement in Islamabad said, “It is deeply worrying that in the past one week, Indian forces have blatantly carried out a series of extra-judicial murders with impunity on a daily basis.”

He said the stage-managed encounters enacted after every so-called ‘cordon and search’ operation and resulted in the extra-judicial killings of innocent Kashmiris. Since its unilateral and illegal actions of August 5, 2019, Indian forces have murdered over 678 Kashmiris, including at least 158 this year.

The Spokesperson said Pakistan reiterated its call for the investigation of extra-judicial killings in IIOJK by the Commission of Inquiry as recommended by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in its Kashmir Reports of 2018 and 2019.

“Pakistan also urges the international community to hold India responsible for its brazen persecution of the innocent Kashmiris and play its due role in ensuring a just and peaceful settlement of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people,” he added.
