Srinagar: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has asked the world community to “get rid of its hypocrisy and double standards” and speak out on the continued “Indian oppression” against the Kashmiri people in blatant violation of UN charter and resolutions for plebiscite in the divided state of Jammu Kashmir, media reports said on Monday.
In a reaction to the recent killing of Sarbaz Ahmed Bhat and Faizan Muzaffar, he said “hypocrisy and double standards of the international community have never been so starkly displayed, as on the Kashmir issue.”
Strongly denouncing the use of force on people in Kashmir, Imran said
“The new round of terror and violence unleashed by India against the Kashmiri people is nothing short of state terrorism.” He called on the international community to take note of “Indian state terrorism” against the Kashmiri people, which was a “violation not just of the UN charter and its underlying principle of the right to self-determination but of all human rights and humanitarian laws”.
The PTI chairman reminded the world “the disputed state remains the most militarised region of the world and it was a sad reflection of the state of global politics today that India’s violence and terrorism against unarmed Kashmiri people was being allowed to go unchecked despite multiple international calls for combating all forms of terrorism”.
