Plight of Kashmiris should shake world conscience, says Maliha Lodhi

NEW YORK: Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations Dr Maliha Lodhi has said that the plight and profound suffering of the Kashmiri people should shake the world conscience, as she urged the international community to take action.

Speaking at a high-level forum on Culture of Peace, Dr Lodhi said the situation in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir was a travesty of international law, justice and humanity. She said that peace could not be achieved amid widespread economic and social deprivation, human rights abuses and situations of political and economic injustice.

In this regard, she cited Kashmir and Palestine as the most glaring and tragic examples of historic injustices where people are still denied their fundamental right to self-determination.

Both these issues remain an unfinished agenda of the United Nations, she added.
