PM points out Kashmir issue on day honouring victims of violence

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on the occasion of the first International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief pointed out the situation of the Kashmiris living under the Indian occupation on Thursday.
In a series of tweets, the prime minister urged the world to play its role in preventing an impending genocide of Kashmiris in Indian occupied territory.

Imran Khan wrote, “Today, on the 1st International Day for Victims of Violence based on Religion or Belief, we call attention to the plight of millions of Kashmiris living under brutal Indian occupation, abuse & violence, deprived of all fundamental rights & freedoms.”

Khan said, “The Indian occupation forces have even denied them their right to observe their religious practices, including Eid ul Azha.”
He added, “As the world shows solidarity for victims of violence based on religion & belief, it must also move to prevent an impending genocide of Kashmiris in IOK.”
The United Nations this year acknowledged 22nd August as the International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief in a breakthrough move for global recognition that violence against people based on their faith is a serious and growing problem.
On 5th August, India abolished Article 370, which granted special status to Indian occupied Kashmir.
