Our patience is about to run out, Shah Mahmood warns Modi
MULTAN (92 News) – Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has warned Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi that Pakistan’s patience over the humanitarian crisis in Occupied Kashmir is about to run out.
Addressing the concluding ceremony of three-day Urs of Hazrat Bahauddin Zakariya on Monday, he said that today the lockdown in IOK had entered 64th day. “The Indian army is blinding innocent Kashmiris through the pellet gun,” he said.
He said that patients are dying due to unavailability of medicines. “When will the Muslim Ummah awaken?” he questioned. “Pakistan will go to any extent to help the oppressed people of occupied Kashmir to secure their due right to self-determination.”
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistanis will be standing by their Kashmiri brethren until they get freedom from the Indian occupation. “India must immediately lift curfew in Occupied Kashmir and provide the Kashmiris their basic rights,” he said.
He said that the Kashmir issue was being debated at top world forum, including the United Nations, and the Indian atrocities in Occupied Kashmir are being exposed.
The minister said that India had denied access to US Senator Chris Van Hollen to visit Occupied Kashmir and observe the situation there, whereas we facilitated a delegation of US senators to visit Azad Kashmir freely.
About the Afghanistan issue, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the soil of Afghanistan needs peace now. “We are extending our cooperation to bring peace and stability to the region. Prime Minister Imran Khan has recently inaugurated 24/7 trade facility between Pakistan and Afghanistan through Torkham border,” he said.
