ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has strongly condemned the killing of a young Kashmiri, Mohammad Amin Malik due to torture by the Indian occupation forces in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), urging the international community to hold India accountable for systematic human rights violations in the occupied valley.
In a statement on Saturday, the Foreign Office spokesperson, Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri, said that the use of brutal force against innocent Kashmiris cannot suppress the struggle for their legitimate right to self-determination.
He said that the young Kashmiri, Mohammad Amin Malik, was in illegal custody of the Indian occupation forces.
He said that the Indian occupation army has killed over 50 Kashmiris since January 2021 in fake encounters in the name of so-called “security operations” against the innocent Kashmiri civilians.
He said that young men and minor children are murdered in broad daylight using brutal and indiscriminate force, adding that arbitrary detentions of Kashmiri youth also continue unabated.
In addition, he added that the refusal to return the mortal remains of martyrs for proper burial demonstrates the moral bankruptcy of the Indian government.
“We once again call upon the international community to hold India accountable for the grave and systematic human rights violations of the Kashmiri people and work for peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people,” he reiterated Pakistan’s repeated calls to the international community.
