Kashmiris’ struggle for right to self-determination becoming stronger with each passing day: PM Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan has said the observance of the Kashmir Solidarity Day commemorates the strong and unflinching resolve of the Kashmiris to achieve the inalienable right to self-determination from Indian subjugation.

The prime minister, in a message on the Kashmir Solidarity Day being commemorated on February 5, said that such resolve of the Kashmiris had not weakened rather strengthened with every passing day and with each new act of Indian cruelty in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IoK).

He said seven decades had passed and the dispute of Jammu and Kashmir remained unresolved.

He said the report of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on Jammu and Kashmir echoed Pakistan’s repeated calls to the international community to take stock of India’s brutal use of pellet guns, indiscriminate firing, use of human shields and promulgation of the draconian Armed Force Special Powers Act (AFSPA) and Public Safety Act (PSA) that were making lives of the people in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir a living hell.

ISLAMABAD – The spokesperson of the Foreign Office Dr Mohammad Faisal Sunday reminded India to accept its failure in ...

“Ruthless killings, pellet injuries to children and infants, rapes and torture; Indian atrocities in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir continue unabated and so does the spirit and courage of Kashmiris in their fight to achieve the legitimate right to self-determination,” he added.

The premier said Kashmiris had been fervently demanding an end to India’s illegitimate rule, spanning more than 70 long and bloody years.

He said since 1947, the number of tortures, molestation and killings perpetrated by the Indian occupation forces against innocent Kashmiris had become a case study in unprecedented violence.

PM Imran said thousands of innocent Kashmiris had been brutally tortured and extra-judicially killed during forced disappearances or illegal custody by the Indian occupation forces, which enjoyed full immunity under draconian laws.
