President Dr Arif Alvi has said the Indian government’s atrocities in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir could lead to a genocide, which would not only put the regional peace but peace of the whole world in danger.
He said this while addressing a joint sitting of parliament at the beginning of the second parliamentary year of National Assembly under the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government in Islamabad on Thursday.
Chiefs of all three armed forces including Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) General Zubair Mahmood Hayat as well as provincial governors, chief ministers, speakers of provincial assemblies and a number of foreign diplomats also attended the session.
After the special session, NA Speaker Asad Qaiser will also host a special dinner for the president.
“We’ll not leave Kashmiris alone at any juncture… we were, are and will always remain with our brothers in IOK.”
The address was marred by protest by the opposition benches, who chanted anti-government slogans including “Go Niazi Go”.
Opposition benches staged a strong protest against the economic crisis and ‘selected’ accountability. The opposition lawmakers censured the government for what they called its failure in foreign policy.
President Dr Arif Alvi said we are all answerable to the Almighty. Government and the masses have reacted strongly to Modi’s Kashmir move in violation of UNSC resolutions.
He said the government also reduced diplomatic ties with New Delhi and raised the issue at all international fora. “The issue was addressed at the UNSC meeting, which reflects that the Kashmir issue is not India’s internal matter but an international matter. Similarly, OIC strongly condemned the August 5 move and demanded that issue must be resolved in accordance with UNSC resolutions.”
President Alvi also thanked all countries that played their role in successfully holding UNSC meeting on Kashmir issue.
He said due to presence of over 900,000 Indian troops, IOK is the most militarised zone in the world. Kashmiris are braving Indian brutalities including custodial murders, rapes and torture, said the president, adding that the curfew in the occupied valley has now entered in its sixth week with other inhuman restrictions in place including a blanket communication blackout.
“We have always answered India’s aggression with responsibility in a bid to ease down the already volatile situation. When India violated Pakistan’s airspace [in February this year], the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) responded with great valour and showed military forces’ operational preparedness to India.
