Govt to write letters to rights bodies against Indian atrocities in Kashmir

Government decided on Friday to write letters to human rights organisations against Indian atrocities being carried out in Kashmir.

LAHORE, July 15 (DNA): Government decided on Friday to write letters to human rights organisations against Indian atrocities being carried out in Kashmir.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif handed over the task regarding writing letters and forwarding them to human rights organisations to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Human Rights.

Draft of the letter was finalised Friday whereas it shall be forwarded to human rights organisations tomorrow (Saturday) after getting approval. The letter shall be written to human rights organisations in India.

Copies of the letter shall be forwarded to human rights organisations all around the world. Furthermore, letters over Indian atrocities in Kashmir shall also be delivered to ambassadors belonging to different countries. Related institutions were also given the task of arranging meetings of the PM with foreign delegates.

Federal Minister for Human Rights Kamran Michael was given the task of arranging events around the country which would highlight Indian brutality on Kashmiris.

Kamran Michael stated that a chain of human hands shall be made in Lahore on Sunday in order to express solidarity with the people of Kashmir.

The current riots in Kashmir fueled by the ‘extra-judicial’ killing of Burhan Wani, Hizbul Mujahideen’s chief of operations, by Indian government forces. Demonstrations held in across Kashmir after his killing and in response Indian forces resorted to fire pallets on Kashmiri people who were protesting against Wani’s killing.

Indian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Vikas Swarup asked Pakistan to refrain from issuing statements on the Kashmir unrest, terming it an interference in India’s internal affairs.

In his early 20s, Wani was born in the southern town of Tral and was a teenager in 2010 when his older brother was beaten by troops on patrol near their home.

Shortly after, he joined Hizbul Mujahideen and eventually became the iconic face of Kashmir’s militancy.

The son of a school headmaster, he regularly posted video messages online dressed in military fatigues and invited young men to join the movement against Indian rule. DNA
