Reiterates moral, diplomatic and political support
Islamabad: Pakistan’s top leadership on Friday reiterated the country’s moral, diplomatic and political support for the people of Jammu and Kashmir and called for an independent probe under the UN into the alleged human rights violations in the Valley.
President Mamnoon Hussain urged India to implement the UN resolutions, saying the peace and prosperity of the entire region is linked with the resolution of the long-standing dispute of Jammu and Kashmir.
Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said India must honour the commitments of its founding fathers and ensure the implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir.
The Pakistan President and Prime Minister issued separate messages to mark “October 27 Black Day” and reiterated Pakistan’s steadfast moral, diplomatic and political support for the people of Jammu and Kashmir, Radio Pakistan reported.
The Indian army landed into Kashmir on October 27, 1947,
Abbasi also called for an independent, transparent and fair investigation into alleged human rights violations under the United Nations in Jammu and Kashmir, while the Pakistan Senate passed a unanimous resolution condemning the atrocities, reported Dawn.
Quoting the Senate chairman, Raza Rabbani, the report said that the United Nations has failed to maintain peace.
“How can the UN protect human rights when it is taking part in human rights violations itself?” Rabbani asked.
He said the UN does not give the rights of Muslim countries the same importance as it does to the rights of Western nations.
During a debate on the matter, Senate members held the international community and the UN responsible for not making efforts to stop the violence in the Valley.
They also said, “India is the biggest contributor of human rights violations in the world.”
