Government of PakistanPakistan rejects Indian allegations of stirring unrest in Kashmir

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Prime Minister’s Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has out rightly rejected the Indian allegations that Pakistan is stirring unrest in the valley.

“Pakistan strongly condemns the brutal use of force by Indian troops in occupied Kashmir,” Sartaj Aziz said in Islamabad on Thursday while briefing media on the latest situation in the Indian-held Kashmir.

It is pertinent to mention here that the Indian Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in a statement in Lock Sabha today said that Pakistan was behind protests in Kashmir.

“Our neighbor is conspiring to disturb the situation in the Kashmir Valley in the name of the religion,” Singh alleged.

Sartaj Aziz also rejected the Indian assertion that the situation in the Valley is internal matter of India. He described it as totally untenable and violation of the UN Security Council resolutions.

The adviser said that Indian forces are using weapons on innocent Kashmiris and have so far killed 50 people.

The foreign affairs adviser said that shelling on innocent Kashmiri protestors is not acceptable under any circumstances as its amounts to violation of fundamental human rights. He said that the occupation authorities have clamped curfew in most parts of the Valley and people have no access to hospitals and other facilities. Likewise, most of Hurriyat leaders are under house arrest.

“It is our conviction that the Indian side will not be able to legalize its control on the territory through such inhuman tactics,” he said.

Sartaj Aziz said that state sponsored terrorism has been unleashed in the held Valley to suppress the voice of Kashmiri people. He said that spontaneous and widening uprising in the held Kashmir depict the indigenous nature of the freedom movement.

The adviser said that plausible resolution of the dispute lies in the granting of right of self-determination to the people of Kashmir. He said that Pakistan has provided and will continue to extend moral, political and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri people in their just struggle for the right to self-determination.

In addition, he said that Pakistan will undertake all possible efforts to apprise the world community about the Indian atrocities.

“We have already briefed the ambassadors of different countries about the situation in occupied Kashmir,” Sartaj Aziz said.
