Will raise issue of Indian HR violations in IoK at every level: PM Imran

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Pakistan will raise the issue of Indian human rights violations at every platform, after security forces martyred around a dozen people in the Pulwama area of the Indian Occupied Kashmir.

The PM took to Twitter to condemn the killings and raised voice in support of the oppressed people in the valley.

He wrote: “Strongly condemn killing of innocent Kashmiri civilians in Pulwama IOK by Indian security forces. Only dialogue and not violence and killings will resolve this conflict. We will raise issue of India’s human rights violations in IOK & demand UNSC fulfil its J&K plebiscite commitment.”

He further said that Kashmiris should be allowed to decide their own future.

Today, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi also called upon the international community and global human rights organisations to immediately intervene and protect the innocent Kashmiris from the ongoing killing spree by the occupation forces in the IoK.

On Saturday, Indian troops martyred ten youth in Indian occupied Kashmir’s Pulwama district, the Kashmir Media Service had reported.

Three of the youth were killed during a cordon and search operation launched by the troops in the Kharpora Sirnoo area of the district.

The killing sparked protests by residents resulting in clashes between the demonstrators and the Indian forces. The India troops fired bullets, pellets and teargas shells to disperse the protesters which lead to two more youths being killed and several others injured.
