ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Thursday said oppression and barbarism in the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) had crossed all limits and called upon the international community and human rights watchdogs to take notice of the worsening situation in the valley.
The foreign minister mentioned Wednesday’s incident of killing a man in front of his three-year-old grandson in the occupied Kashmir, saying the painful event was an eye-opener for the world.
“How long the human rights organisations will remain silent on the persistent subjugation and cruelty in the occupied valley,” he raised a question
Qureshi said he had updated the European Union (EU) over the brutal incident that was clearly an extrajudicial killing of a civilian.
He vowed to continue raising the issue of human rights abuses in IOK at all international fronts.
He pointed out that Kashmir faced the communication and Internet blackout as India wanted to conceal the ongoing situation. “It is the moral duty of the champions of human rights to raise voice for the rights of Kashmiris,” he said.
