Strongly condemning firing by the Indian troops at a wedding function in Khuiratta sector of the LoC in which 11 members of the same family including six women, two minor girls and a boy were injured, he said this was the height of barbarity and naked aggression committed by the Indian Army, AJK President office said Monday evening
The AJK president said that targeting of civilians including women and children at the hands of Indian troops should be a matter of grave concerns for the international community, particularly the international human rights organizations.
He maintained that the Indian Army was targeting the defenceless citizens of Azad Kashmir particularly women and children in order to divert the attention of the international community from state terrorism and flagrant human rights violations by the Indian troops deployed in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The state President reiterated that government and people of Azad Kashmir are with their brothers and sisters in IIOJK struggling for their right to self-determination and expressed his hope that day is not far off when people of two divided parts of Kashmir will celebrate together their victory against tyranny and oppression.
