ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has slammed  India’s relentless state terrorism and extra-judicial killings of innocent people in fake “encounters” and so-called “cordon-and-search” operations in India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir. 

According to a statement from the Foreign Office on Sunday, over three hundred Kashmiris, including women and children, have been martyred by the Indian occupation forces during the last one year.

“Four more young Kashmiris were martyred in Kulgam and Pulwama districts in IOJK yesterday. A 14-year old boy was seriously injured in the illegal and inhuman military crackdown,” it said.

India must realise that use of brutal force against the Kashmiri people, including extra-judicial killings, custodial torture and deaths, forced disappearances, incarceration of Kashmiri leadership and youth, use of pellet guns, destruction of houses to inflict “collective punishment” on the Kashmiri communities, and other methods of subjugation have failed in the past and will not succeed in the future, the statement said.

“The indigenous resistance movement of the Kashmiris for their inalienable right to self-determination, as enshrined in the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions, will only become stronger in the face of Indian state-terrorism,” the Foreign Office said.

The Foreign Office called upon the international community to take full cognizance of the consistently aggravating situation in IOJK and hold India accountable for egregious human rights violations and war crimes in the occupied territory.

Pakistan also urged the world community to work for peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UNSC Resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people for durable peace and stability of the region.
