ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman Dr. Mohammad Faisal said on Thursday that India had transformed occupied Kashmir into the world’s largest prison with a continuous blackout of curfews and communications after the Narendra Modi administration had repealed the unique status accorded to the contested valley.
The spokesman observed in his weekly press briefing that India’s exhibited aggression posed a threat to national peace and called on the international community to notice the atrocities perpetrated by Indian troops in occupied Kashmir.
“The demonstrations around the world against Modi government’s policies will continue. Until when will India continue the curfew? The [lockdown] will have to end one day,” Dr Faisal said.
He further stated that Pakistan had consultations to approach the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the prevalent abusses of human rights in occupied Kashmir.
The spokesman expressed concern about hundreds of Twitter accounts belonging to Pakistani users being suspended after writing posts in support of Kashmir. “We are deeply concerned about the[ reports] of suspended accounts and raise the issue with the companies concerned,” he said.
A number of journalists, activists, and officials in the government reported that after tweeting, their accounts were suspended in support of the freedom of Kashmir.
