Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday asked the world community to hold India accountable for its crimes against humanity in Kashmir, as it demanded justice for the families of 25 Kashmiris allegedly killed by Indian security in 1990.
Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said in a statement that January 25 reminds Pakistan about the alleged massacre of more than 25 innocent defenceless Kashmiris in Hundwara by Indian security forces 27 years ago.
He alleged that the horrific massacre was committed by the Indian forces just three days after they had reportedly killed more than 50 Kashmiris in Gawkadal.
On both the occasions the Indian forces had unleashed terror on peaceful protesters. The perpetrators of the two massacres that I mentioned are yet to face justice while victims families have been suffering from the unforgettable and unbearable pain for 27 years, Zakaria alleged.
He further said that Kashmiris were hoping that the world community will make India pay for their crimes against humanity.
The killing, arbitrary arrests and fake encounters of Kashmiris continue and their fundamental rights are being denied constantly. International Community must act to hold India accountable for their crimes against humanity, he said.
