Islamabad: Former prime minister and PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif has said that Indian forces’ subjecting of innocent Kashmiris, who have been struggling for their right to self-determination, to brutal torture is a “challenge for the human conscience of the entire world,” says a statement.
According to the statement, Nawaz sharif strongly condemned Sunday’s killing in Indian Occupied Kashmir inwhich 18 Kashmiri youth were martyred and hundreds injured by Indian occupation forces. “India must know that it cannot crush the Kashmiris’ passion for freedom through such sort of imperialistic tactics,” he said.
The former premier said that it is obligatory for the United Nations that it make immediate and serious efforts for the implementation of its resolutions while taking notice of these grave violations of human rights. “If these inhumane atrocities continued and the world conscience did not wake up, then it would not only be cruel to the Kashmiris, but the entire humanity.”
Nawaz urged that not only the Pakistani government, but all political parties and the society should rise above divisions and raise their voice against Indian atrocities on Kashmiri people.
Meanwhile Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif, FO Spokesperson Dr. Muhammad Faisal condemned the brutal killings in IOK in categorical terms and termed it flagrant violation of human rights.
