“Valiant people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK) are sacrificing lives for their inalienable right to self-determination granted to them by the United Nations Security Council, but India was constantly denying this right to them for the last seventy years and using brutal force and perpetrating atrocities to subdue and crush the ongoing freedom movement in Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK)”, he said this while briefing the UK-based Pakistani media at Pakistan High Commission here yesterday.
