Pakistan seeks UNHCR help to stop annexation of Kashmir by India.


ISLAMABAD -- Federal Minister for Human Rights Dr. Shireen Mazari on Thursday wrote a letter to UN High commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet and expressed concerns over the illegal annexation of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashhmir by India.

The Ministry of Human Rights in a statement said that the minister in her letter expressed grave concern over the illegal annexation of Indian Occupied Kashmir by India on 5th August 2019.

She said, 'Your personal commitment to protect and promote human rights has been consistent and unwavering due to which I appeal to your respected office to bring to a halt the forcible transfer of civilian populations to and from Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.'

She further said that UNCHR has issued two reports on Kashmir: The first report in June 2018 and the Second Report in July 2019. In both reports your office has rightly raised the concern over the excessive use of force by Indian security forces in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. 'This excessive use of force by India is its standard modus operandi, as in a recently released picture from Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a three-year-old child sits next to his grandfather's blood covered dead body in Sopore.'
