Pakistan condemns FIR against Kashmiri leader Asiya Andrabi
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Saturday condemned the registration of a first information report (FIR) by National Investigation Agency of India against Kashmiri leader Asiya Andrabi.

Foreign Office Spokesman Dr. Muhammad Faisal, in a statement, said the continuing Indian attempts to implicate Hurriyat leadership on fabricated charges was yet another example of Indian state terrorism to subjugate Kashmiris.

“This too shall fail,” the spokesman said in a tweet with hashtag #kashmirbleeds.

He said after the report of the United Nations’ High Commissioner for Human Rights on human rights violations in Kashmir, India continued with an intensified crackdown in Indian occupied Kashmir targeting the vocal Kashmiris, especially the Hurriyat leadership.

Asiya Andrabi is a Kashmiri separatist, and the founding leader of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (Daughters of the nation).

This Islamic group is part of the separatist All Parties Hurriyat Conference in the  Kashmir valley. The main aim of the organization is to work for separation of  Kashmir from India.

Asiya Andrabi remains one of the most important women separatists in the valley. Her supporters call her the iron lady.
