Pakistan strongly condemns extra-judicial killing of Kashmiris

Islamabad, August 30, 2020 (PPI-OT): Pakistan has strongly condemned the extra-judicial killing of four more Kashmiris in staged encounter in Shopian region of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and the restrictions on religious processions and gatherings during Muharram.

The Foreign Office Spokesperson, Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry, in a statement in Islamabad said more than three hundred innocent Kashmiris, including women and children, have been martyred by the Indian forces in fake encounters and so-called cordon and search operations during the last one year. He said that the Indian inhuman methods to subjugate the Kashmiri people through killings, torture, forced disappearances and incarcerations have failed in the past and would not succeed in the future too.

The Spokesperson said the perpetuation of India’s state-terrorism cannot break the will of the Kashmiris or quell their efforts to secure their inalienable right to self-determination as enshrined in the relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions. He urged the international community to hold India accountable for its serious crimes against the Kashmiri people.
