Ambassadors of Foreign Missions in Islamabad were briefed in the Foreign Office on the continuously aggravating Human Rights situation in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir in the backdrop of Kashmir Solidarity Day.

Foreign Office’s Additional Secretary for United Nation and European Commission told the envoys that Jammu & Kashmir dispute is one of the oldest items on the agenda of the UN Security Council.

Indian Brutalities in the territory had increased significantly after the Extra-Judicial killing of Burhan Wani on 8 July 2016.

They were told that gross violation of Human Rights of the people of IOK perpetrated by Indian Occupation Forces had resulted in 150 civilian deaths and injuries to more than 20,000.

The inhumane use of pellet guns has caused serious injuries to thousands of innocent people, including young girls and children, and blinded hundreds completely or partially.

The Additional Secretary Urged the International Community to take up with India its gross Human Rights violations perpetrated in IOK at all levels to ensure the misery and suffering of innocent Kashmiris is alleviated and to play its role in the resolution of the Jammu & Kashmir dispute in Line with the UNSC Resolutions.
