Islamabad, June 05 : Pakistan has strongly condemned the killing of a Kashmiri youth, Mohammad Amin Malik, due to torture by Indian occupational forces in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement, Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said the Indian occupational army has so far killed over fifty Kashmiris this year in fake encounters in the name of so-called cordon and search operations. He said young men including minor children are murdered in broad daylight using brutal and indiscriminate force.
The spokesperson said arbitrary detentions of Kashmiri youth also continue unabated. In addition, refusal to return the mortal remains of martyrs for proper burial demonstrates the moral bankruptcy of the Indian government.
Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said use of brutal force against innocent Kashmiris cannot suppress their struggle for securing their legitimate right to self-determination.
He called upon the international community to hold India accountable for the grave and systematic human rights violations in IIOJK and work for peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
