Pakistan expresses deep concerns over the deployment of ‘additional’ Indian occupation forces in IOJK
ISLAMABAD, Nov 11, (Asia Free Press): Pakistan on Thursday expressed its deep concern over the ‘additional’ deployment of Indian troops in the disputed Kashmir region.
In a statement, Pakistan Foreign Ministry said Islamabad is deeply concerned over the recent deployment of ‘additional’ 5500 Indian occupation troops in the “Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK).”
“Indian occupation forces have unleashed unimaginable brutalities on the Kashmiris including inter-alia the use of pellet guns, extrajudicial killings in ‘fake encounters’, enforced disappearances, arbitrary detentions, torture and custodial deaths,” said the foreign ministry spokesman.
He added that his country has already shared with the international community a comprehensive Dossier documenting Indian state-terrorism, widespread violations of human rights, war crimes and crimes against humanity in IOJK.
“The deployment of these additional troops in IOJK – the world’s most militarised region with over 900,000 occupation forces already – will further brutalize the oppressed Kashmiri people.”
“Equally reprehensible is the housing of Indian occupation forces in community centres, erection of additional bunkers in cities and daily aggressive and humiliating frisking of Kashmiri men and women.”
Pakistan again calls upon India to halt its barbarism and state-sponsored terrorism in the IOJK, immediately cease human rights violations, lift the inhuman military siege and let the people of IOJK exercise their right to self-determination as enshrined in the relevant UN Security Council resolutions.
Earlier speaking to a joint news conference and OIC’s Special Envoy on Jammu and Kashmir Yousef Aldobeay in Islamabad, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi condemned the Indian barbarism in Kashmir against civilian people and said India true face now exposed after Modi led government targeted minorities across India.
Qureshi said now India is facing a tough time in Kashmir and Ladakh as China has also rejected its illegal actions of August 2019, while Kashmiris’ also resisting the occupation forces in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
