Pakistan has strongly condemned the latest extra-judicial killings by the Indian occupation forces of three Kashmiri youth in Srinagar on December 29, 2020, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday.
The families and neighbors of the martyred Kashmiris – Aijaz Maqbool Ganie, Zubair Ahmed Lone, and Athar Mushtaq Wani (aged 16 and students of class 11 ) – have affirmed that the young boys were innocent, who visited Srinagar on the fateful day and became victims of Indian state-terrorism.
The Foreign Office has deemed it ‘inhuman’ that the bodies of the three martyrs have not been handed over to their families for a proper burial, despite repeated appeals by the families. This is a new form of oppression that the Indian occupation forces are now resorting to in order to break the will of the Kashmiri people, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, adding that they will never succeed in this attempt.
The ‘unabated killing spree’ in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK) and the ‘reprehensible’ refusal to hand over the bodies should be a matter of grave concern for ‘people of conscience’ across the world, reiterated the FO, calling the RSS-JP regime ‘morally bankrupt’.
The Ministry further stated that Pakistan had consistently emphasised that the gross and systematic violations of human rights being perpetrated by the Indian occupation forces warrant an investigation by a UN Commission of Inquiry, as recommended by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in its Kashmir reports of 2018 and 2019.
“Pakistan reiterates its call for an independent inquiry under international scrutiny to investigate the extra-judicial killings of Kashmiris by Indian occupation forces and to bring the perpetrators of these heinous crimes to justice,” the Foreign Office concluded.
