Pakistan’s Foreign Office (FO) condemned on Monday New Delhi's act of registration of cases against the grieving family members of the iconic Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani by the Indian Occupation forces.

"After denying the family the right to bury Syed Ali Shah Geelani as per his will, the Indian Occupation Forces have further resorted to harassing the family of Syed Ali Shah Geelani by registering cases against them on trumped-up charges," the FO said in a statement.

India’s mistreatment of Geelani’s family is part of its agenda to force Kashmiris to prevent them from demanding the exercise of their inalienable right to self-determination, but it will never succeed, the FO said, adding that "the resolve of the Kashmiri people is getting strengthened with the passing of every day."

The FO asked the international community to take serious note of this unprecedented repression, and the persisting systematic human rights violations in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and hold India to account for its inhumane, unjust, and illegal actions.

Pakistan summons Indian diplomat over 'shameless snatching' of Syed Ali Geelani's body

Last week, Pakistan's FO strongly condemned the barbaric act of snatching the mortal remains of Geelani from his family by the Indian Occupation Forces.

Geelani, an uncompromising campaigner against Indian rule, died Wednesday at the age of 92 following a long illness, and thousands of police personnel were deployed soon after to try and prevent unrest in the region.

He was buried in a tightly controlled pre-dawn ceremony on Thursday as Indian authorities imposed a lockdown across IIOJK.

Geelani was one of the most outspoken critics of the Indian Occupation of Jammu and Kashmir, having spent several years in jail or under house arrest.
