Pakistan expresses concern over deteriorating HR situation in IIOJK

Islamabad, November 24 (KMS): Pakistan has expressed serious concern over the deteriorating human rights situation in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The Foreign Office Spokesperson, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, responding to a question at her weekly news briefing in Islamabad today (Thursday) said no improvement was seen in the situation in the occupied territory as it remains under military siege and Indian oppression continues unabated there.

She said that Indian troops while continuing their spree of extra-judicial killings last week in IIOJK martyred two Kashmiri youth in fake encounters in Islamabad and Shopian districts. She said Indian troops also continue to subject the innocent youth to custodial killings.

The Spokesperson said Pakistan is also deeply concerned about the welfare of Kashmiri political prisoners including All Parties Hurriyat Conference leaders and human rights defenders languishing in different jails of IIOJK and India.

She demanded of New Delhi to end its gross and systematic violations of human rights in the occupied territory, revoke its illegal and unilateral actions of 5th August 2019, and release all Kashmiri political prisoners including Hurriyat leaders.
