Pakistan has said that the picture of a three-year-old Kashmiri boy sitting on the body of his grandfather in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) will forever remain seared in the imagination of all those who believe in humanity.
In her weekly presser today, Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said images of India's brutalization was flashed across the world depicting the level of its callousness. "India cannot wash away the truth by fake news and turning its propaganda machinery faster," she said.
On Wednesday, a picture surfaced showing a boy sitting on the body of his grandfather, Bashir Ahmed Khan, in Sopore, IoK. According to the family of the deceased, the security forces killed the 65-year-old civilian during a gunfight.
“Locals said that he (Khan) was brought out of his car and shot dead by the forces,” Farooq Ahmed, a nephew of the dead man told AFP.
Following the killing, hundreds of people in IoK staged protests, accusing the government forces of killing a man. The picture of the toddler was also shared widely on Twitter.
