ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has urged the international community to take notice of Indian atrocities in the Occupied Kashmir, asking it to exercise its influence over India for enabling Pakistan to arrange medical treatment of the victims in the wake of ongoing humanitarian crisis there.

In a statement issued by the Foreign Office on Saturday, he said: “Pakistan wants to arrange medical treatment for the victims of the state oppression by the security forces in Occupied Kashmir. It especially desires the eye treatment of the victims of pellet guns, from the best available medical facilities anywhere in the world on immediate basis.”

The prime minister said that even more gruesome was that the healthcare providers in Indian Occupied Kashmir had not been allowed to treat the victims properly.

The Indian security forces had also been targeting the hospitals and ambulances providing health-care to the peaceful and defenceless innocent protestors, the prime minister added.

He said “Being blinded has severe consequences for the victims and their families; some victims of the pellet guns may never see light again. Still, they are resolute; they are guided by the light of freedom for the realization of their right to self-determination. The world should realize this. Pakistan will continue to support them morally, politically and diplomatically.”

The prime minister has directed Ministry of Foreign Affairs to mobilize the support of international political leadership, the humanitarian organizations and civil society through Pakistan Missions abroad in exerting influence over India to allow the Pakistan government for arranging the treatment of the victims in Occupied Kashmir on humanitarian grounds.

He further directed the ministry that the Pakistan government would arrange for the board and lodging and expenses on the medical treatment for the victims.
