Pakistan permanent representative and ambassador to the United Nations Munir Akram said India has deliberately use force and martyred at least 96,000 Kashmiris since 1989. More than 900,000 troops deployed in the occupied valley since August 5, 2019.
Pakistan’s UN ambassador also brings the world body’s attention to the fact and figures while ruling party’s openly associated with extremist Hindutva and calling for the genocide of Muslims in India.
According to the ambassador while addressing the security Council’s 8953rd meeting on the “Protection of civilians in armed conflict; War in cities and protection of civilians in urban settings”. Ambassador further added that, “Since August 5, 2019, 900,000 Indian troops have been deployed in Indian occupied Kashmir in every city, town, village and neighborhood, but arrogant Indian leaders called the act as a final solution for Jammu and Kashmir,”
“Indian Army have resorted cordon and search operations, fake encounters to extra-judicially kill innocent Kashmiris youth, imposed collective punishment to destroy and burn the Kashmiri neighborhood, urban centers and villages, used live ammunition against peaceful protesters, including pellet guns which have blinded hundreds of Kashmiri children, arbitrarily detained 13,000 young Kashmiri boys, many of whom have been tortured. Indian administration are in the process of changing the demography of the occupied Kashmir from a Muslim majority state to a Hindu majority territory.”
Munir Akram told the House that Pakistan has released a comprehensive and well-researched dossier last year, troubling accounts, corroborated by audio and video evidence of 3,432 cases of war crimes perpetrated by senior officers of the Indian occupation forces since 1989.
Pakistan’s ambassador said his country calls upon the Security Council to take cognizance of the compelling evidence of these crimes and to hold accountable those Indian officials and personnel responsible for such crimes and grave breaches of international humanitarian law.
“India is a not a victim of terrorism. It is the mothership of terrorism in South Asia. It is Pakistan which has suffered from terrorism in operations that have been conducted since 2014,” he asserted.
“We have cleared our territories of terrorist groups. Our major challenge has been the continued terrorist attacks, financed, sponsored and supported by our neighbor India, including from the territory of Afghanistan. With the active support of the Indian intelligence agencies, the TTP and JUA terrorist groups have been involved over 1,000 cross-border terrorist attacks against Pakistani military and civilian targets in 2020 alone.”
