ISLAMABAD (92 News) - President Dr. Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif have strongly condemned India's illegal action on The Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

President Dr. Arif Alvi has said the resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people is the only way to ensure durable peace and stability in the region.

In a message on the occasion of Youm-e-Istehsal, he said we honour the sacrifices of the Kashmiris in their just struggle for their right to self-determination.

The President said India's actions of 5 August 2019 contravene several United Nations Security Council resolutions which stipulated that the final disposition of the State of Jammu and Kashmir will be made in accordance with the will of the people through a free and impartial plebiscite conducted under the auspices of the United Nations.

Arif Alvi said Pakistan will continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our Kashmiri brothers and sisters in their just struggle.

He called upon the international community to take practical steps to hold India accountable for its gross and widespread human rights violations in IIOJK and to facilitate a peaceful resolution of this long-standing dispute

In his message on Youm-E-Istihsal, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said the just struggle of the people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir to realize their right of self-determination, guaranteed under several resolutions of the UN Security Council, is being suppressed through brutal use of force by the Indian occupation forces. 

The Prime Minister said the Jammu and Kashmir dispute has been on the United Nations agenda for over seven decades. This long-standing dispute must be addressed and resolved with a sense of urgency and responsibility.

He said by deploying additional troops and imposing unprecedented media restrictions, since 5th August 2019, the Indian occupation forces have turned IIOJK into the largest prison on the planet.

He said the human rights situation in IIOJK have seriously deteriorated over the last three years.
