Islamabad: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says Kashmir is not just a dispute between Pakistan and India, but is a litmus test for our collective humanity to check gross human rights violations in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing a seminar, organized in Islamabad today to mark the Kashmir Black Day, he said Indian brutalities are suffocating Kashmiri lives and Kashmiri people are subjected to worst kind of inhuman treatment.
He said political, religious, cultural, and economic liberties of the people of Kashmir are facing Indian oppression. He said demographic structure in the occupied territory is being changed in violation of international injunctions and law.
He said Kashmiris have been deprived of digital connectivity in the age of digital media. He said Hindutva obsessed mindset is doing all this. He said humanity dies in Kashmir every day.
The Foreign Minister said the world must know and the Kashmir youth must know that even their voices are muzzled; they have their voice and their rights are being muzzled, they have rights. He said their lives are no less than a life of an American, European, or Indian. He said they are not alone as the Pakistani youth is standing with you and will remain with them in future as well.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi advised the youth that they should continue their efforts to mobilize the world community on Kashmir question and they should never lose hope.
