ISLAMABAD: Chairman Senate Standing Committee on Interior Senator, A Rehman Malik Wednesday asked Secretary General United Nations and President UN Human Rights Commission to take the cognizance of sheer violations of human rights and International laws by Indian Forces in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

Addressing a conference on “Human Rights Violations in Indian Occupied Kashmir” here, he strongly condemned the Indian Forces’ brutalities against unarmed Kashmiris.

He said that Indian Forces under Prime Minister Narendra Modi have crossed all limits of brutality by committing unprecedented atrocities against innocent Kashmiris in terms of mass murders, mass blinding, enforced disappearances, torture, rapes, political repression and suppression of freedom of speech.

The Conference was also attended by President AJK Sardar Masood Khan, Federal Minister on Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur, leaders of All Parties Hurriyat Conference and a large number of Kashmiris.

Senator A. Rehman Malik said that recently, he had visited the United Nations Headquarter in Geneva wherein he met Ambassador Vojislav Šuc, the President of United Nations Human Rights Council on December 5th, 2018 and apprised him about Indian brutalities against innocent people of Indian-Occupied Kashmir (IOK).

He said that just today he has written a letter to Vojislav Šuc, reiterating his appeal to appoint a high powered Commission of UNHRC to investigate the ongoing unprecedented human rights violations in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

He said that Kashmir is the Pakistan’s jugular vein and the people of Pakistan always stand by the people of Kashmir in their legal struggle for freedom from illegal confinement of India.

He said that Indian Government had increased the number of troops in Kashmir to the level of 700,000 plus, to kill and inflict violence to peace loving armless innocent Kashmiris.

He said that Indian Forces are unleashing ethnic cleansing of Muslim majority in Kashmir; by mass murdering and settling the RSS trained families in Kashmir.

They are being allotted lands and houses in Kashmir to reduce Muslims as minority there, which is the utter violation of the right of Kashmiri Muslims.

RSS has already come up with a new strategy of five thousands Village Defense Committees (VDS) in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

On the occasion, Senator A. Rehman Malik moved a Resolution which was unanimously adopted by the august House.

Speaking on the occasion Convener All Parties Hurriyat Conference (AJK-Chapter) Ghulam Muhammad Safi urged forging unity among ranks to resolve the Kashmir issue. Pakistan should adopt a pro active policy for conveniencing the world about brutalities of the world.

Ali Raza Saeed said the United Nations report which highlighted the human right violations in Kashmir, should be pursued proactively.

Dr Imtiaz said from 15 to 20 Kashmiris are being killed daily in Kashmir. India is frightened. Kashmir desks should be established at all embassies of the country.
