ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Thursday said that Indian forces will not be able to silence innocent Kashmiris, and called on international institutions to probe into the human rights violations being carried out by the occupying forces.
During his weekly briefing, FO spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said Pakistan condemns the genocide of defenceless Kashmiris. “India is committing ceasefire violations at the Line of Control to divert the world’s attention from its atrocities.”
“Pakistan strongly condemns the genocide of defenseless Kashmiri people. They [India]cannot suppress the voice of freedom of the Kashmiri people by the use of force. International intuitions should be allowed to probe into the atrocities in the valley.”
