Federal Minister for National Food Security and Research Syed Fakhar Imam here on Thursday called upon the international community to play role to stop atrocities and gross human right violation by Indian forces in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammy and Kashmir (IIOJK) on its unarmed, innocent peo-ple.

Addressing a Webinar on “Kashmir Conflict in the Aftermath of August 5, 2019”, organized by the Consulate General of Pakistan, Sydney, Imam said that the world must not forget that India has brutally murdered over 95,000 Kashmiris to suppress their struggle for self-determination.

The event was organized to mark the second an-niversary of revocation of special status of Kashmir by India on 5th August, 2019 by abrogating article 370 and 35 A of Indian constitution and declaring occupied Jammy and Kashmir union territory.

The event was also attended by the Consul Gen-eral Australia Muhammad Ashraf. The conference was streamed online through the Facebook page of the Consul General Australia which has 35,000 followers, said a press release issued by the minis-try.

Federal Minister said that United Nations has on numerous occasions discussed the issue of Kashmir in the aftermath of the illegal and unilateral action of India on 5th August 2019, which proves that Kashmir is a disputed territory.

He said that the world has started to open its eyes to the human rights violations in Kashmir which have been highlighted by international media such as NY Times, Washington Post, Wallstreet Journal and other international agencies across the world.

Fakhar said that the emerging strategic partner-ship between USA, Japan, Australia and India has allowed India to expand its hegemonic designs in the region.—INP
