Kashmiris cannot be denied the Right to Self-Determination, Insists Pakistan | pakistantribe.com

ISLAMABAD – In response to a question, the Spokesperson said that Pakistan has a demonstrated and longstanding commitment of combating terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.

According to the official media release from Pakistan’s Foreign Office, the people and government of Pakistan have rendered immense sacrifices in both blood and treasure to end this scourge, which has been acknowledged by the international community.

The 70 year old indigenous struggle of Kashmiris in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir remains legitimate, said Pak FO.

Pakistan insisted on it’s official stance over Kashmir while sating that the designation of individuals supporting the Kashmiri right to self-determination as terrorists is completely unjustified.

On Tuesday when explaining about the situation in Jammua and Kashir, Pakistan clarified that the gross and systematic violations of human rights of the Kashmiri people in IOK that have been recorded and reported by independent human rights bodies is a reality. Over the past one year the world has witnessed an intensification of the brutal policies of repression being pursued by the Indian occupation forces.

This includes the full or partial blinding of over a thousand innocent Kashmiris through the use of pellet guns, rape as an instrument of state policy, extrajudicial executions, use of human shields by Indian occupation forces, arbitrary arrests, undocumented disappearances, humiliation of Kashmiris on a daily basis, the blowing up of their homes and the denial of their fundamental freedoms of movement expression and opinion as well as religious freedoms. Despite this relentless state terror, the Kashmiris remain undeterred and unbowed, stated FO statement.

Pakistan shall continue to extend political, diplomatic and moral support for the just struggle of the Kashmiri people for the realization of the right to self-determination and the peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with UN Security Council Resolutions.
