MIRPUR, (Parliament Times):  While expressing grave concern over the fresh unprovoked shelling by Indian forces at LoC in Neelam valley of AJK the General Secretary Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Azad Kashmir Raja Musadiq Khan has urged the international community to take effective notice of India’s naked aggression on the civilian population in Azad Kashmir.

In a statement issued here on Saturday, the PTI leader said that on one hand Indian occupation forces have unleashed a reign of terror in occupied Kashmir while on the other the unbridled and trigger happy Indian forces have been targeting civilian population on this side of the line of control. Terming Indian belligerence as a threat to peace and security in the region Raja Musadiq Khan said that it was high time that the world community should play its much-needed role to deescalate tensions on the LoC besides holding the government of India accountable for the war crimes its forces have been committing against defenceless and unarmed civilians across the ceasefire line.

Meanwhile, hailing the Pakistan Armed forces for their befitting response to ceasefire violations by the Indian forces he said that a matching response by Pakistan army in Neelum valley has forced the enemy to lick its wounds. Lauding the sacrifices rendered by the people living in the villages adjacent to the LoC Khan said that the people of Neelum valley have made unforgettable sacrifices in the defence of their homeland. He also expressed his heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families who have lost their dear ones during the recent shelling by Indian forces.
