He said brute force is being used to crush the Kashmiris' quest for their fundamental rights, especially the right to self-determination enshrined in the relevant UN Security Council and OIC Resolutions.
For the last 10 months, the Minister said, the Kashmiri people have endured untold suffering from continuous lockdown, military siege, communications blockade, and unprecedented restrictions. These measures were imposed following India's illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August last year.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said to prevent the world from knowing the Kashmir reality, the occupation forces are suppressing, intimidating and incarcerating Kashmiri male and female journalists.
Pakistan has been consistently sensitizing OIC and the international community about the real Indian intention behind its actions, which is to change the demographic structure of Occupied Kashmir and further disempower and disenfranchise the Kashmiris.
