کشمیری مسلمانوں کی نسلی تطہیر۔
Foreign Office Spokesman, Nafees Zakarya while congratulating all Pakistanis at home and abroad on Pakistan Cricket Team’s convincing win against India, has said that Kashmiris in IOK were beaten up and tortured by the Indian occupation forces for celebrating Pakistan’s victory.
According to media sources, the Foreign Office Spokesman at a weekly briefing in Islamabad also mentioned the killing of 3 more Kashmiri youth by Indian troops in IOK. “Earlier during last few days, Indian occupation forces had martyred 8 Kashmiris [including a 14 year old grade 8 student, Ehsan Mushtaq Dar, 18-year Adil Mushtaq Mir, 22-year Muhammad Ashraf Khar, 22-year-old Junaid Matoo, Naseer Wani, 22-year old Naseer Ahmed Sheikh, Gulzar Ahmad and Basit Ahmad at Arwani, Bijbehera] and injured over two hundred including dozens with pellets and bullets after Indian forces used brute force on defenseless Kashmiris in Srinagar, Sopore, Pulwama, Shopian, Kulgam, Islamabad, Hajin, Kupwara areas,” he said.
“Over fifty political detainees in Kathua Jail Jammu are in life threatening conditions and not allowed to receive relatives. World human rights organizations, Kashmiri organizations etc. should send fact-finding missions to IOK.” He added, “Kashmiris in IOK, who were celebrating Pakistan’s victory in final of ICC Championship on June 18 against India, were beaten up and tortured by the Indian occupation forces. Indian troops barged into houses in Shopian, Kulgam, Bandipora and Pampore areas and vandalized property and repeatedly subjected the inmates to ruthless torture. This is highly deplorable.” This Eid, while we celebrate with our loved ones, we must remember oppressed Kashmiris in IoK, particularly the children, victims of pellet guns, those orphaned, and send them our support and prayers, and our appreciation for remaining undeterred in the face of atrocities perpetrated by the Indian forces, he said. Nafees Zakarya said Foreign Affairs Adviser, Sartaj Aziz, has written letters to the UNSG, President UNSC, UNHC for Human Rights, Geneva and SG OIC to update them on human rights violations perpetrated by the Indian forces in IOK and the despicable episode of a Kashmiri, Farooq Ahmed Dar, who was tied to the jeep as a human shield. “We have always known and spoken of false flag operations carried out by Indian military, state and intelligence institutions to implicate Pakistan in self-staged acts of terrorism. These are done often close to VVIP visits to India, Pakistan and other countries in the region. One of such incidents is Chhittisingh Pora of gruesome killing of 35 Sikhs in March 2000 just before the visit of President Clinton to the region. Today, this has been proven by the interview given by Lt. Gen. K.S. Gill in which he has confirmed that the incident was stage-managed by the Indian army,” he maintained.
