LoC firing: Indian forces target civilians in Uri Sector


LAHORE :(Parliament Times)  Indian forces have resorted to unprovoked firing on Saturday at the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri Sector where civilians were targeted as Indian government continues its anti-Pakistan rhetoric over Kashmir dispute.

The development has come in a few days after a passenger bus was targeted with a rocket in Neelum Valley claimed eight lives and injuring seven. The same day three soldiers embraced martyrdom at the LoC in firing that was provoked by Indian troops as always have been the case.

India have fought three wars against Pakistan since separation over Kashmirdispute and the recent aggression at the Working Boundary and LoC started after Nawaz Sharif, Prime Minister (PM) of Pakistan drew attention of international bodies and powers towards Indian atrocities in the occupied valley for at least seven decades in his address to the General Assembly of United Nations (UNGA) in September.

Syed Ali Gilani, one of the leaders of separatist movement in the valley called All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) said on Friday that Kashmiris would side with Pakistan if they are were to choose.

It should be mentioned here that India, after Indo-Pakistan separation vowed to hold a referendum in Kashmir and let the people decide which state they want to be governed by. However, the promise made to the Kashmiris is yet to be realized in reality.
