Pakistan supports to set up inquiry commission in IoK
NEW YORK (92 News) – Pakistan on Wednesday supported the recommendation to set up an inquiry commission over serious violations of human rights in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK).
Permanent Representative to UN Dr Maleeha Lodhi has stated during the meeting with UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet. She also informed Michelle Bachelet about the Indian atrocities in Occupied Kashmir.
During an interactive dialogue, Bachelet expressed concern about the human rights situation in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Lodhi said all liberties had been taken away from people of occupied Kashmir while human rights violations continue with impunity and tales of torture abound.
Earlier, Outgoing Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to UN said that UN’s decolonization agenda would remain incomplete without a settlement of Kashmir issue based on Security Council resolutions.
Speaking to the General Assembly’s Special Political and Decolonization (Fourth) Committee, Maleeha Lodhi said India illegally annexed Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, turning it into the world’s largest prison.
Maleeha Lodhi said Pakistan will remain the voice of Kashmiris in all international forums especially the UN until justice is done and they are able to exercise their right to self-determination.
It was Maleeha Lodhi’s third statement on Kashmir at the UN this week as she pressed on with her campaign to expose Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir.
onteh other hand, life continued to remain paralysed as the worst curfew entered 73rd day, on Wednesday, in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) with schools, markets and other business centres closed and public transport off the roads.
Kashmiris defied all restrictions and staged demonstrations against India at several places. Indian troops fired to pellet guns to disperse the protesters, injuring several.
Shops and markets are closed and public transport is off the roads in the Kashmir Valley and many areas of Jammu as a mark of protest to express resentment against the Indian occupation.
