Pakistan needs a consistent policy on Kashmir; Says Ambassador (r) Abdul Basit


News Desk |

In the occupied Kashmir, Indian troops killed 3 mujahedeen, 7 civilians and injured 32 near gunfight site on Saturday, December 15. Reportedly around 60-90 civilians were killed near gunfight sites in Kashmir this year. The government of Pakistan termed it as a ‘killing Spree’ by occupation forces in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

Ambassador (r) Abdul Basit while talking to Dr. Moeed Pirzada in his GNN prime time show on Monday said that Pakistan has a lack of consistency in Kashmir policy. Good results are only possible when consistent policies are implemented. Murtaza Shibli, a journalist from Occupied Kashmir, termed Pakistan’s policies towards Kashmir as futile but he appreciated the efforts of current government.

Kashmiri people came to know the fact that the true power in Kashmir lies with the army that is why people are protesting against it.

Ambassador (r) Basit said that Pakistan had been less successful in drawing the attention of the world community to the Jammu and Kashmir dispute as India continued to suppress the people of IoK with impunity, while international community remained oblivious to the human rights violations.

He said the mainland India mostly remained unaware about developments in IOK and believed in the national narrative, which had been promoted by the establishment in New Delhi. He highlighted that in the post-9/11 period, a narrative had been developed by India, according to which legitimate struggle of Kashmiris for their right to self-determination had been associated with terrorism.

Kashmiri people came to know the fact that the true power in Kashmir lies with the army that is why people are protesting against it. They have also called for a march to Badami Bagh army cantonment on Monday.
