Kashmiris hope world would make India pay for crimes in IOK

Islamabad, January 26, 2017 (PPI-OT):Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesperson has said that 25th January reminded us the massacre of more than 25 innocent defenseless Kashmiris in Hundwara, occupied Kashmir, in 1990. The spokesperson in his opening remarks at the Press Briefing in Islamabad, today, said, “The horrific massacre was committed by the Indian occupation forces just three days after they massacred more than 50 Kashmiris in Gawkadal on 21st January 1990.”

On both the occasions, he added, the Indian forces had unleashed terror on peaceful protesters. “The perpetrators of the two massacres that I mentioned are yet to face justice while victims’ families have been suffering from the unforgettable and unbearable pain for 27 years,” he said and added, “The two massacres were among one and a half dozen massacres that Indian occupation forces have committed since 1990.”

The spokesperson said that Kashmiris hoped that International community would make India pay for their crimes against humanity. “Currently, the situation in IOK is getting worse. The killing, arbitrary arrests and fake encounters of Kashmiris continue and their fundamental rights are being denied constantly. International Community must act to hold India accountable for their crimes against humanity,” he demanded.

He mentioned extensive 3-hour long debate on Kashmir in the House of Commons, UK, wherein the House resolved that “It notes the escalation in violence and breaches of international human rights on the Indian side of the Line of Control in Kashmir and called on the Government to raise the matter at the United Nations. It also called “on the Government to encourage Pakistan and India to commence peace negotiations to establish a long-term solution on the future governance of Kashmir based on the right of the Kashmiri people to determine their own future in accordance with the provisions of UN Security Council resolutions,” he added.
