Islamabad, August 07, 2020 (PPI-OT): ‘Since illegal occupation of Kashmir by Indian forces, the Indian government and its agencies have not given any respite in oppressing and torturing the Kashmiris of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK)’ said Raza Bashir Tarar, High Commissioner of Pakistan to Canada while participating in a webinar on human rights situation in IIOJK.
High Commissioner Tarar said that the resilient and brave people of IIOJK have stood up to the Indian atrocities and even after a long torturous period of 72 years the Kashmiris are still fighting for their right of self-determination. Indian authorities and media have tried to portray this self-determination fight as terrorism, which is outrageous. Kashmiris were assured of their right of self-determination by the highest body in the world that is United National Security Council (UNSC), he added.
While deliberating on the issue, the High Commissioner informed that Kashmir is the world’s longest running conflict; acutely dangerous flash point and one of the most militarized zones in the world.
