Nawaz Asked To Raise Kashmir at UN

MUZAFARABAD: Pakistan Controlled Kashmir (PcK) Prime Minister, Raja Farooq Haider, on Thursday called on Pakistan primer, Nawaz Sharif, to raise India's “state sponsored terrorism” in Kashmir in the UN Security Council.

“Across the world, even the oppressors cannot go beyond a certain limit in use of force against the oppressed. Indian troops have crossed all limits and the way they are killing the Kashmiris, demolishing their properties and molesting their women is unprecedented in modern history,” The Dawn online quoted Haider speaking at a press conference in Muzaffarabad.

“As prime minister of the liberated territory of Kashmir as well as a common Kashmiri, I call upon the Government of Pakistan to raise this issue in the UN Security Council in accordance with the UN Charter,” he added.

The PcK PM's statement comes in the wake of the killing of three civilians and injuries to at least 35 others during an encounter in Chadoora on Tuesday.

The protests had followed a gun battle between a militant and forces that killed at least one rebel.

Haider added that Indian Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat had recently given a “license to kill” to his troops by warning that those who creating difficulties for security forces in the valley would face “tough action.”

“The statement was a clear indication of the designs of the Indian occupation machinery that has already unleashed a reign of terror in held Kashmir,” Haider said.
