Pakistan welcomes EU MPs letter on HR and Humanitarian violations in IIOJK


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Saturday welcomes the letter on Human Rights and Humanitarian Situation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) addressed by members of the European Parliament to the President and Vice President of the European Commission.

FO Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that this letter is yet another demonstration of the continuing global censure of the ongoing human rights violations and humanitarian crisis in IIOJK.

“Despite India continuously peddling false propaganda in futile attempts to push the sham narrative of so-called ‘normalcy’ in IIOJK, the global censure and condemnation of the Indian atrocities in IIOJK continue and have increased in the wake of the egregious violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms in IIOJK after India’s illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019” FO Spokesperson add

Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry said that, the United Nations Security Council has discussed the issue of Jammu and Kashmir at least three times since 5 August 2019; the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has issued two reports in 2018 and 2019, making specific recommendations including the institution of an Independent Commission of Inquiry to investigate the gross and systematic human rights violations by India in the occupied territory.

“The global parliaments have debated the issue of Jammu and Kashmir; the international human rights and humanitarian organizations as well as global media have consistently raised the issue of human rights violations in IIOJK.”

FO Spokesperson added that India must realise that it cannot ignore the international community’s continuing calls to end its grave and systematic human rights violations of the Kashmiri people. India will have to ultimately give in to global conscience, end its unabated human rights violations in parts of Jammu and Kashmir under its illegal occupation and take steps for peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people.”
