ISLAMABAD: Strongly condemning the atrocities by the Indian occupation forces in Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Imran Khan Wednesday urged the worldwide neighborhood, particularly the United Nations to take motion on India’s warfare crimes and grave human rights violations within the occupied valley.
The prime minister’s message comes as Kashmiris on either side of the Line of Control and the world over over observe the Right to Self-Determination Day at the moment of their bid to remind the UN of implementing its personal resolutions on the dispute handed on January 5 in 1949. It was on January 5, 1949, when the United Nations Commission for India and Pakistan adopted a decision that assured the Kashmiris the best to self-determination by way of an neutral plebiscite.
In a sequence of tweets, PM Imran berated the Narendra Modi-led authorities for “brazenly” violating the us resolutions on Kashmir.
He maintained that the us dedication of an UN-supervised plebiscite in Kashmir stays unfulfilled because of the perspective of the Modi authorities.
“The Hindutva Modi govt brazenly violates UNSC resolutions, international humanitarian laws, and international conventions, including 4th Geneva Convention, and commits war crimes by seeking to alter status and demography of IIOJK,” the prime minister added.
“Pakistan remains steadfast in its commitment to the just Kashmiri struggle for self-determination,” he added.
In a separate message on the event, the prime minister, whereas reminding the world neighborhood that it can’t abandon its ethical and authorized obligations in the direction of Kashmiris, mentioned that sturdy peace in South Asia is contingent upon peaceable decision of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with worldwide legitimacy.
The significance of the inalienable proper to self-determination has been acknowledged in all essential human rights covenants and choices of the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council, the prime minister mentioned.
“While observing 5th of January as the Right to Self-Determination Day for the Kashmiris, we reiterate our commitment to uphold the fundamental human rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and pay homage to the Kashmiris’ just struggle spanning over more than seven decades,” he said.
“We are commemorating this day to remind the world community that it cannot abandon its moral and legal responsibilities towards the Kashmiri people.”
He identified that the best to self-determination was granted to the Kashmiris by the United Nations and can’t be unilaterally denied by India.
Three generations of Kashmiris have waited for the world neighborhood and the UN to honour their solemn commitments made to Kashmiris, he mentioned.
“Indian atrocities in the IOJK continue unabated but the courage and spirit of Kashmiris remain strong,” he added.
