Indian State Machinery Involves in Crimes in IoK: Abbasi  

Islamabad (October 27, 2017): Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that 27 October 1947 is one of the darkest days of human history.

In his message on the ‘Black Day’ being observed by Kashmiris on the both sides of the Line of Control to mark the 70 years of Indian oppression, Shahid Khaqab Abbasi said this day marks a grave human tragedy in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IoK) when 69 years ago, Indian occupation forces landed in Srinagar to occupy, subjugate, oppress, and terrorize innocent Kashmiris.Kashmiris Observe Indian Independence As Black Day“This pattern of brutalities continues with impunity even today. Despite commitments made by the early Indian leadership and numerous resolutions of the UN Security Council on Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian government has unleashed a reign of terror in IoK,” he added.

Abbasi said that the worst form of state terrorism is being perpetrated against the defenseless people of IoK to silence and crush their legitimate struggle, in complete disregard of international human rights and humanitarian laws.He said the entire Indian state machinery is involved in these crimes against humanity. There is a need for an independent, transparent and fair investigation into these human rights violations under the UN. Pakistan has supported the proposal of the High Commissioner for Human Rights for sending a Fact Finding Mission to Jammu and Kashmir, Abbasi added.

Abbasi said, “We reiterate our call and hope that the international community will pay heed to the miseries and sufferings of the Kashmiri people.”

From July last year until the end of September 2017, Indian atrocities have resulted in the killings of over 460 innocent Kashmiris, injuring over 20,000 and deliberately blinding hundreds, the PM said  and added that over 200 people have lost eyesight, while vision of thousands has been impaired.He said over 7,000 Kashmiris have been arrested with their current status unknown, while scores of women have been raped and molested. These facts seek urgent attention of the international community, PM Shahid Khaqab Abbasi said and added that the denial of the right to self-determination for the last seven decades raises questions about the conscience of the international community and the United Nations.Abbasi said that India must honour commitments of its founding fathers and ensure implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir for resolution of this long standing dispute.

He said , “We pay homage to the sacrifices of our brethren in IoK and reiterate our unflinching and steadfast moral, diplomatic and political support for the just cause of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. This support will continue till the realization of the lawful right to self-determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, PM Abbasi added.
