Pakistan has strongly condemned Indian occupation forces’ relentless killing spree resulting in martyrdom of two more Kashmiri youth in Srinagar during a staged cordon and search operation yesterday.
In a statement, the Foreign Office Spokesperson said that more than 560 innocent Kashmiris have been martyred by the occupation forces in staged encounters since, the Indian illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019.
He said the intensified military crackdown and the rising numbers of extra-judicial killings in fake encounters and staged operations in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir are part of the extremist anti-Muslim designs of the “Hindutva” inspired BJP-RSS combine in India.
He said ironically, Kashmiri youth has been a specific target of the 900,000 strong Indian military force which is stationed in the IIOJK to muzzle the voice of the besieged Kashmiris.
The Spokesperson also condemned the Indian Occupation forces’ criminal act of opening fire at two Kashmiris inside a mosque compound in Handwara, Kupwara district on seventh of this month. He said it is deplorable that during the holy month of Ramadan, the Indian occupation forces have rather intensified their repression against innocent Kashmiris.
He said the unrelenting killings of the Kashmiri youth and wilful attacks on Muslim worshippers including harassment and intrusive surveillance of those visiting the mosques are patent manifestations of the continuing blatant violations of the fundamental rights of the Kashmiris and the widely pervasive Islamophobia among the Indian Occupation forces in IIOJK.
