State terrorism by India continues in Indian Occupied Kashmir

Islamabad, September 25, 2016 (PPI-OT): In response to queries regarding Prime Minister Modi’s address in Kerala in which he tried to malign Pakistan, the Spokesperson said that it is unfortunate that Indian leadership continues to indulge in a well thought out vilification campaign against Pakistan by making provocative statements and baseless accusations. Such irresponsible display of behaviour at the highest political level is regrettable.

It is evident that, as an act of desperation, India is trying to distract world attention from the atrocities perpetrated by its occupation forces in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) against innocent and defenceless Kashmiris, including children and women. These atrocities have intensified since the extra-judicial killing of Kashmiri youth leader Burhan Muzaffar Wani in July this year. In the last seventy-five days, Indian occupation forces have brutally martyred more than 100 Kashmiris, blinded hundreds and injured thousands.

The Spokesperson pointed out that the international community has taken notice of these blatant human rights violations, with concerns expressed by several countries as well as UN and OIC. There are increasing demands of independent investigations and fact finding missions to be sent to IoK.

Moreover, while India has cast aspersions on Pakistan, it continues to sponsor terrorism in Pakistan directly through its state apparatus. The arrest and confession statements of a serving Indian Navy officer and intelligence operative, Kulbhushan Yadav, reveal beyond a shadow of doubt as to how India fuels terrorist activities in various parts of Pakistan, including Balochistan and FATA.
