FO rejects Indian minister's comments, say India involved in human rights violations in IIOJK

  • FO says it is the RSS-BJP regime’s dangerous policies of ‘Hindutva’ and ‘Akhand Bharat’ that continue to victimize the Kashmiris in IIOJK
17 Oct 2020

(Karachi) The Foreign Office has rejected Indian External Affairs Minister's comments made at a recent online think-tank event, saying Pakistan completely rejects these unwarranted and tendentious remarks, a statement issued by FO stated.

The Indian minister had blamed Pakistan for the current state of India-Pakistan relations.

The statement said that India itself is involved in human rights violations, illegal and unilateral actions in IIOJK, ceasefire violations at LoC, unabashed anti-minority policies and actions and spreading negative propaganda against Pakistan. "Clearly, an acknowledged perpetrator of state-terrorism cannot masquerade as a ‘victim’ of terrorism," it added.

The FO said that portrayal of innocent Kashmiri youth, women and children, martyred in fake “encounters” and “cordon-and-search” operations, as terrorists to divert the world’s attention from the unacceptable actions of Indian occupation forces in IIOJK is a travesty, reflective of the moral bankruptcy of the Indian leadership.

"The so-called preachers of trade and connectivity should also tell the world as to who is blocking regional cooperation and the SAARC process, with its next Summit pending since 2016," the statement highlighted.

It said India's Indian sophistry and obfuscation can neither hide hard facts, nor succeed in misleading the world community.

"It is the RSS-BJP regime’s dangerous policies of ‘Hindutva’ and ‘Akhand Bharat’ that continue to victimize the Kashmiris in IIOJK and squeeze the space for the minorities in India on the one hand, and create problems with nearly all of India’s neighbours on the other hand."

The Foreign Office stated ‘normal’ relations with India remain contingent unless India begins to act normally.
