Pakistan condemns killing of 23-year old Kashmiri by Indian forces  

Pakistan strongly condemns extra-judicial killing of 23-year old Irfan Ahmad Dar, a shopkeeper from Sopore region of Indian-occupied Kashmir.

The victim was picked up from his home and mercilessly tortured to death in custody. More than 300 hundred innocent Kashmiris, including women and children, fell prey to Indian brutalities in a year.

A Foreign Office spokesperson said India’s inhuman methods to subjugate the Kashmiri people through killings, torture, forced disappearances and incarcerations have failed in the past and will not succeed in future.

The official called upon the world to take notice and play its part for resolving the issue, saying: “The spokesperson “The perpetuation of India’s state-terrorism cannot break the will of the Kashmiris or quell their efforts to secure their inalienable right to self-determination as enshrined in the relevant United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions and international law.”

The spokesperson added:  “The international community must take immediate cognizance of the worsening human rights situation in IIOJK and hold India accountable for its serious crimes against the Kashmiri people. India must be made to comply with its international legal obligations and respect the fundamental rights of the Kashmiri people, including the foremost right to life.

“It is also the collective responsibility of the world community, including the United Nations, to work for peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions and international law for durable peace and stability in South Asia.”
