Pakistan will continue support to Kashmiris till realization of right to self-determination: FM


Islamabad, Nov 12 (TNS): Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says Pakistan will continue to extend legal, moral and diplomatic support to its Kashmiri brethren till realization of their right to self-determination in accordance with the United Nations resolutions.

In a special message on Tuesday, he said the Modi government has besieged the armless Kashmiri people for the last hundred days and they are facing Indian atrocities in the held valley. He said innocent Kashmiri children and women are being subjected to oppression by the Indian forces.

The Foreign Minister said Kashmiris are unable to get access to the food and medicines owing to the continuous curfew in the held valley and shadows of death are hovering there.

He said on the one side, Pakistan is opening the corridor of love and on the other side India is imposing restrictions over offering Juma and Eid prayers in occupied Kashmir. He said the Kashmiris were even not allowed to take out processions of Muharram-ul-Haram and Eid Milad-un-Nabi (SAWW).

He urged the international community and human rights organizations to play their due and proactive role to get the Kashmiri people rid of the Indian brutalities.
