ISLAMABAD, July 11 (APP): Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry Monday called in the Indian High Commissioner and conveyed Pakistan's serious concerns over the recent killings of Kashmiri leader Burhan Wani and many other civilians in Indian occupied Kashmir by the Indian military and paramilitary forces.
According to a Foreign Office statement, the Foreign Secretary observed that the use of excessive force against innocent civilians protesting peacefully over extrajudicial killings, was deplorable and a blatant violation of the rights to life, freedom of expression and opinion, peaceful protest, peaceful assembly and other fundamental rights.
He deplored the firing by Indian security forces on peaceful protesters, resulting in killings of more than 30 innocent people and injuries to more than 300, around 50 critically.
He highlighted that such brutal use of force was not acceptable under any circumstance.
Aizaz Chaudhry called for fair and transparent inquiry against individuals responsible for these killings.
It was emphasized that oppressive measures could not deter the valiant people of the Jammu and Kashmir from their demand of exercising their right to self determination in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions.
The Foreign Secretary reiterated Pakistan's call on the Indian government to fulfil its human rights obligations as well as its commitments under the United Nations Security Council Resolutions to resolve the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.
Earlier Indian External Affairs Ministry rejected the Foreign Office statement of denouncing the brutal use of force by Indian Troops.
Indian External Affairs ministry termed it as interference in the internal affairs of India and described it as intolerable.
As Pakistan has summoned the Indian High Commissioner over Indian Forces brutalities in Foreign Office, the Indian media has started to level allegations against Pakistan for sponsoring terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir .
More Indian Troops have been sent to the Indian Occupied Kashmir as Death toll of innocent civilians has crossed 30 and likely to grow further as there seems less chances of agitation to die down in near future.
Meanwhile Indian Main stream media and hardliner Hindus have put blame of chaos in Jammu and Kashmir upon Pakistan.
