South Asians for Human Rights

Promoting Democracy, Upholding Human Rights

The Pakistani government condemned a deadly attack on an Indian police station on Monday, amid accusations by Indian officials that the attackers crossed the border from Pakistan. “Pakistan reiterates its condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” the statement said. “We extend heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the government and people of India.” Any proof of links between Pakistan and the attackers would be sure to increase tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbours. Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majeed, meanwhile, called upon the international community to play a proactive role in stopping genocide of Kashmiris by Indian forces in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Talking to various public delegations that called on him on Monday, he said that India is committing gross human rights violations in the held territory. He said that international human rights organisations including Amnesty International in their latest reports expressed their grave concern over the deteriorating human rights situation in the occupied Kashmir, which is an eye opener for the peace-loving countries of the world.

The AJK premier strongly condemned the illegal detention of Hurriyat leaders, arbitrary arrest of Kashmiri youth and desecration of holy places by Indian forces in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir. Updated on: 28 July, 2015
