India has launched a war against students in IHK: FO

Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has reiterated its moral, political and diplomatic support to Kashmiris in their just struggle for right to self-determination.
Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria in his weekly news briefing said on Thursday that India was violating United Nations human right charter in Occupied Kashmir by using brute force against innocent Kashmiris.
The Spokesman said India has formally launched a war against students in Occupied Kashmir.
He said that Indian forces are using the Kashmiri people as human shield.
He said the people of Occupied Kashmir have rejected the recently held sham elections in the held valley.
“They have attacked women education institutions as well. A dozen colleges have been attacked, injuring thousands of students – both boys and girls,” he said .
“Last week, Indian Home Minister claimed that Indian government will control the situation within a year and showed his determination to do with whatever it takes,” added the FO.
Nafees Zakaria said harrowing stories from Indian-held Kashmir continue to raise concerns in Pakistan.
“Use of brute force against innocent Kashmiris, who refused to participate in the sham elections, cannot suppress their human urge of freedom.”
The FO further said that India has openly violated human rights in Kashmir and has displayed a complete disregard for the UN Charter, adding that recently leaked videos openly showing use of human shields and beatings by the “occupation forces, is a manifestation”.
Zakaria also mentioned the banning of social media in the held valley, and said the steps were taken by the Indian government to ensure that “reports of crimes against humanity committed by Indian occupation forces do not go out of IOK”.
