He added that heart wrenching accounts of the plight of innocent Kashmiri women and children in the face of vicious brutality inflicted on them by Indian security forces has left us speechless. He said that such barbaric acts perpetrated on innocent Kashmiris by Indian armed forces surmount to breech of all local and international human rights doctrines.

While concluding, he urged the international community to take notice of the deteriorating situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir and seek condemnation of the Indian brutalities at the highest level.
