Pakistan on Saturday strongly condemned the killing of a young Kashmiri, Mohammad Amin Malik, due to the torture by the Indian occupation forces in Occupied Kashmir (IIOJK), reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson said that the young Kashmiri was in illegal custody of the Indian occupation forces.  

In a statement, the MOFA spokesman said, “The Indian occupation army has killed over 50 Kashmiris since January 2021 in fake encounters in the name of so-called “security operations” against the innocent Kashmiri civilians. Young men including minor children are murdered in broad daylight using brutal and indiscriminate force. Arbitrary detentions of Kashmiri youth also continue unabated.”

In addition, the refusal to return the mortal remains of martyrs for proper burial demonstrates the moral bankruptcy of the Indian government.

“Use of brutal force against innocent Kashmiris cannot suppress the struggle for their legitimate right to self-determination,” the statement reads.

Pakistan once again called upon the international community to hold India accountable for the grave and systematic human rights violations of the Kashmiri people and work for peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people.
