Srinagar

The Pakistan Senate on Friday commemorated October 27 as “Black Day” and unanimously passed a resolution condemning the “brutalities by Indian forces against the people of Kashmir”, The Express Tribune reported.

The Senate also “deplored” the continuing silence of the international community towards the atrocities being committed by the Indian forces in Kashmir.

“The Senate reiterates the stance of Hurriyat leadership that any attempt to [initiate] dialogue without engaging Pakistan is not only against international resolutions of [the] United Nations, but reflects India’s continued selfishness, insincerity and blatant disregard of international principles of self-determinations,” reads the resolution.

The Senate further said the Indian government’s continuing “inhumane attitude” was exposed during the most recent announcement of Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who named a new interlocutor with a mandate to consult all local Kashmiri organisations seeking right to self-determination.

“This was done as a mere eyewash to divert the attention of the international community and the human rights organisations away from the Kashmir issue a week before arrival of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in New Delhi.

The house further said that India which boasts itself largest democracy of the world is in violation of democratic values and principles given its denial of the most fundamental human rights of the people of Kashmir.

“The Senate of Pakistan further calls upon international community to force India to stop violations of human rights in IOK,” stated the resolution.

The Senate voted to extend political, moral and diplomatic support to the people of Kashmir in line with the UN resolution.
