President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Masood Khan has urged the international community to take steps on emergency basis to prevent India from genocide of the Kashmiri people.
Addressing Friends of Kashmir Conference in Brussels, he said threats of genocide of innocent people of Indian controlled Kashmir are increasing.
He asked the world community to take notice of blatant human rights violations in the held valley.
Sardar Masood Khan also extended gratitude to the European Parliament for fully supporting the defenseless Kashmiri people.
On the occasion, he also apprised the participants about India’s unilateral steps in Indian held Kashmir.
He commended 58 countries and the European Union for supporting the cause of a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute in the line with UN Security Council resolutions and international laws.
It may be noted that Pakistan on Monday welcomed a new report of the United Nations on the situation in Indian Kashmir, which for the second consecutive year called for setting up of a commission of inquiry for investigating human rights abuses being perpetrated by Indian held troops in the valley.
Masood Khan said Indian actions in Jammu and Kashmir have put peace and security of entire region at stake. He said the UN Security Council should take practical steps to end the miseries and agony of Kashmiri people.
He affirmed that no power of the world can deprive the people of Jammu and Kashmir of their right to self-determination. He said the people in the valley have been fighting against the Indian tyranny and oppression over the last seven decades.
Masood Khan said this is a day to pay homage to the families of the martyrs. Pakistan has fought six wars for Kashmiris and is continuing its support though political and diplomatic efforts, he said.
Sardar Masood Khan said India once again attacked the valley and the region on August 05 by scrapping IoK’s autonomy.
India has planned to silent the voices of Kashmiris by torturing them, and Pakistan is highlighting its atrocities across the globe, he concluded.
