ISLAMABAD –Pakistan lashes out at India over the irresponsible remarks of the Foreign Minister, calls India’s utter frustration over failure in Occupied Kashmir.
Pakistan has strongly condemned and rejected the inflammatory and irresponsible remarks by Indian external affairs minister S Jaishankar regarding Pakistan, and Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
Foreign Office in a statement in Islamabad said these remarks are an obvious manifestation of India’s utter frustration over the continued international censure of its egregious human rights violations in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
With close to a million military and security personnel incarcerating more than 8 million Kashmiris in one of the world’s largest prison, India is obdurately committing state terrorism in the IoJ&K. India cannot divert international attention from its crimes against the innocent people of IoJ&K by blaming Pakistan.
India continues to unashamedly justify the violation of Kashmiris’ human rights. India today is also a unique and deplorable case of a state which promotes hate crimes against minorities and consistently fails to bring to account those who indulge in cow vigilantism, mob lynchings and forced conversions and are guilty of violating India’s own laws.
The crimes committed by the Indian state in the IoJ&K for over 70 years are enough to debunk pretentious claim of India being a normal state and the so-called “largest democracy.”
Pakistan calls on the international community to take serious cognizance of India’s aggressive posturing about taking ‘physical jurisdiction’ of AJK.
