ISLAMABAD: Pakistan strongly condemned the killing of a young Kashmiri, Mohammad Amin Malik, due to torture by Indian occupation forces in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) after holding him illegal custody.

A Ministry of Foreign Affairs statement said on Saturday that the Indian occupation army has killed more than 50 Kashmiris since January 2021 in staged encounters in the name of so-called “security operations” against the innocent Kashmiris.

Young men, and even children, are being murdered in broad daylight using brutal and indiscriminate force. Arbitrary detentions of Kashmiri youth also continued unabated, the statement added.

Moreover, refusal to return the bodies of martyrs for proper burial demonstrates the moral bankruptcy of the Indian government.

Use of brutal force against innocent Kashmiris cannot suppress the struggle for their legitimate right to self-determination, it said.

We once again call upon the international community to hold India accountable for the grave and systematic human rights violations of the Kashmiri people and work for peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people, the statement concluded.
