Pakistan Thursday said that it is seriously concerned about the people in Kashmir who have been arrested since Burhan Muzzaffar Wani’s killing on 8th July 2016.

During a weekly press briefing, the foreign office spokesperson said, “India in complete violation of the UN Charter and International Law on fundamental rights has been randomly arresting innocent Kashmiris using the draconian laws or lawless laws such as Public Safety Act.”

He said that more than 10,000 Kashmiri youth have been arrested during the last 5 months and there is no news about them whether they have been tortured and sent to the similar ‘Mass Graves’ that were discovered in 2009.

“Pakistan is deeply concerned about the fate of those arrested Kashmiris. International Community must stop Indian brutalities and bloodshed of Kashmiris. We call upon the UN, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and other such organizations to call India to account for its blatant violations of human rights.”

The spokesperson said, “So far more than 6,000 Kashmiris, including children, are victims of pellet guns, over 150 have been martyred and more than 17,000 are injured, many of whom without any medical attention. Indian forces and Hindu terrorist organizations such as RSS and others, should be tried for their crimes against humanity.”

He said, “At an International European Kashmir Conference in Denmark last month, representatives of 500 various political & social organizations and NGOs adopted Copenhagen Declaration called, inter alia, for release of those arrested under lawless laws immediately and those blinded Kashmiris using pellet guns be brought to book.”
