Pakistan Thursday expressed deep concern over the recent deployment of additional 5,500 Indian troops in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K). “The Indian occupation forces have unleashed unimaginable brutalities on the Kashmiris including inter-alia the use of pellet guns, extrajudicial killings in fake encounters, enforced disappearances, arbitrary detentions, torture and custodial deaths,” the Foreign Office spokesperson said in a statement. He said Pakistan had already shared with the international community a comprehensive dossier documenting Indian state-terrorism, widespread violations of human rights, war crimes and crimes against humanity in IIOJ&K. “Deployment of these additional troops in IIOJ&K – the world’s most militarized region with over 900,000 occupation forces already – will further brutalize the oppressed Kashmiri people,” he remarked. Equally reprehensible is the housing of Indian occupation forces in community centres, erection of additional bunkers in cities and daily aggressive and humiliating frisking of Kashmiri men and women, he added. “Pakistan once again calls upon India to halt its barbarism and state-sponsored terrorism in the IIOJ&K, immediately cease human rights violations, lift the inhuman military siege and let the people of IIOJ&K exercise their right to self-determination as enshrined in the relevant UN Security Council resolutions,” the spokesperson remarked.
