Islamabad, Nov 22:
Pakistan Foreign minister Khawaja Asif said Wednesday that his country cannot observe silence over brutal killings of Kashmiris in Kashmir by Indian forces.
In a statement, the minister said Indian forces are committing the worst of human rights violations in Kashmir.
He said the killing of at least 11 persons in five days should grip the world at its conscience.
Asif said that resolutions of United Nations Organisation (UNO) give the people of Kashmir their right to self-determination and they should be given the chance to determine their fate.
He asserted that Pakistan government is playing an effective role to divert world’s attention to the brutality unleashed by Indian forces in Kashmir.
He urged the world powers to end apathetic attitude towards “state terrorism” in Kashmir.
Asif said India neither has moral nor political case to defend its military presence in the Valley for around seven decades.
He accused Narendra Modi-led government of India of avoiding dialogue over the issue.
