Srinagar: The government of Pakistan has decided to forcefully raise Kashmir dispute as a humanitarian issue at the international level in order to unmask the Indian abuses in Kashmir valley.

According to a report by Radio Pakistan, Parliamentary Secretary for Foreign Affairs Andleeb Abbass told the house during question hour that Kashmir Solidarity Day on 5th February will be observed this year not only in Pakistan but also abroad including London.  “We have also invited the OIC to organize a conference on Kashmir in Islamabad or any other place to highlight the plight of oppressed Kashmiri people.” She said.


The Parliamentary Secretary said Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan raised the issue of recent Indian brutalities in occupied Kashmir with the UN Secretary General. She said Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi during his address at the UN General Assembly session also exposed Indian ‘abuses’.

She said international activists including a delegation of British MPs have compiled their stories and reports on gross human rights violations in occupied Kashmir.

The parliamentary secretary said 2018 was one of the deadliest years in occupied Kashmir in which Indian occupation forces killed more than 350  Kashmiris and blinded and maimed many more including women and children.

The parliamentary secretary also condemned Indian provocations on the Line of Control. She said we have repeatedly invited the UN inspectors to visit the LoC and see for themselves as to which country is violating the ceasefire.  She said Indian propaganda of carrying out surgical strikes inside Pakistan was also negated by its own media as a mere drama.

Parliamentary Secretary for Foreign Affairs Andleeb Abbas said the present government has reset and reinvigorated relations with Saudi Arabia and UAE over the last five months. She said the agreements signed with both the countries
