ISLAMABAD -UNS : Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi expressed his deep shock and grief at the indiscriminate, vicious killing of more than 17 Kashmiri youth in Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK) by the Indian forces.

Strongly condemning the gross inhuman violations of the basic human rights of innocent Kashmiris, including the basic human right to life and health, the prime minister emphasized that Indian attempts to label the legitimate Kashmir struggle terrorism cannot deter the valiant people of Jammu and Kashmir from their demand of exercising their right to self determination in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions, According to a press statement of the Foreign Office.
The prime minister stressed the need for the international community to urge India to allow access to fact-finding missions of the OHCHR and OIC IPHRC to Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir.
He also called upon the UNSC Secretary General to appoint a special representative for Jammu & Kashmir, where India, encouraged by the silence of the international community, continued to kill with impunity.
Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa said Monday that Indian atrocities in Occupied Kashmir can never suppress a just indigenous political struggle for self determination.
In a statement channelled through Director General (DG) of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) Bajwa said that brutalities by Indian Security Forces against innocent Kashmiris in IOK and CFVs along LOC/WB targeting civilians are highly condemnable.
