Islamabad: Caretaker Prime Minister of Pakistan Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar has said that India is violating all norms and conventions of human rights in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
According to Kashmir Media Service, Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar in a message on the occasion of Human Rights Day being observed, today, said the illegal actions of 5 August 2019, aimed at demographic change and disenfranchising the Kashmiris from exercising their right to self-determination have further aggravated the scale of oppression and suppression of Kashmiri people’s basic rights, identity and fundamental freedoms.
He said Pakistan reiterated its call for ending egregious human rights abuses in the occupied territory and reaffirmed to continue moral, diplomatic and political support to the Kashmiri people in their just struggle against India’s tyranny, occupation and oppression.
“We urge the international community to press India to grant Kashmiris their fundamental rights including the right to self-determination as enshrined in the UN Security Council resolutions,” he reiterated.
The caretaker prime minister said that another pressing human rights situation had emerged in Palestine where Israel was egregiously violating human rights in Gaza, resulting in thousands of casualties, including innocent women and children. Israel’s purposeful, indiscriminate, and disproportionate targeting of people violated all standards of human rights and constituted a clear breach of international law.
He urged the international community to redouble efforts for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and asked Israel to end its brutal occupation of Palestine and grant the Palestinian people their inalienable right to decide their own future.
