Srinagar, Apr 5: Pakistan expresses solidarity with the people of Kashmir, said the Pakistani Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal.
In his weekly press briefing on Thursday, Dr Faisal remarked that India is trying to crush the struggle of people in Kashmir.
Pakistan is willing to bear all expenses for the treatment of people injured in Kashmir, he added. The new wave of Indian atrocities in Kashmir led to Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi calling a special meeting to review the situation in Kashmir valley.
Dr Faisal remarked that the ministry is in the process of sending representatives to several countries in order to advocate for the rights of Kashmiris. Before the beginning of the briefing, a video was played for the foreign ambassadors present Thursday. The video showed the recent Indian atrocities and human rights violations in Kashmir.
In the last few days, the situation in Kashmir has escalated with Indian forces killing more than 13 militants and 5 civilians and almost 250 civilians injured in Kashmir.
Dr Faisal told the ambassadors that countless young men have been killed in the recent clashes. “We have seen unauthorised use of pellet guns on women and children”, he added. He also said that Pakistan condemns the attack by the Indian forces.
Those killed in the recent attacks were in the age bracket of 19 to 27 years, with some of them being PhD scholars and Hafiz-e-Quran (people who have completely memorised the Holy Quran).
Dr Faisal urged the international community to take notice of the human rights violations taking place in Kashmir at the moment. He also said the United Nations should conduct an inquiry into the matter.
Replying to a question, Dr Faisal said that Pakistan is ready to sit down with India and engage in dialogue.
