According to Pakistan’s ambassador to the United Nations, Munir Akram, India has killed at least 96,000 Kashmiris since 1989. Since August 5, 2019, an estimated 900,000 troops have been stationed in the occupied valley.
Pakistan’s UN ambassador also called the international body’s attention to the fact that the ruling party’s affiliated hardline Hindutva is openly advocating for the genocide of Muslims in India, a claim that was denied by the Indian government. Since August 5, 2019, 900,000 Indian troops have been stationed in Indian occupied Kashmir in every city, town, village and neighbourhood to impose what Indian leaders have themselves described as a “final solution” for Jammu and Kashmir, said the ambassador during the UN Security Council’s 8953rd meeting, which was held on the topic of “Protection of civilians in armed conflict: War in cities-protection of civilians in urban settings.”
They have used cordon and search operations, fake encounters, and collective punishment to extra-judicially kill innocent Kashmiri youth. They have used live ammunition against peaceful protesters, including pellet guns, which have blinded hundreds of Kashmiri children. They have arbitrarily detained 13,000 young Kashmiri boys, many of whom have been tortured, and who are in the process of changing the demography of the region.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Munir Akram, stated that Pakistan released a comprehensive and well-researched dossier last year, detailing troubling accounts of war crimes perpetrated by senior officers of the Indian occupation forces since 1989, which was corroborated by audio and video evidence in 3,432 cases.
According to Pakistan’s ambassador, the Security Council should take note of the overwhelming evidence of these crimes and punish those Indian authorities and people responsible for such crimes and grave violations of international humanitarian law.
In the words of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, “India is not a terrorist target.” The country is regarded as the “mothership” of terrorism in South Asia. According to him, “Pakistan has been the victim of terrorism in operations that have been carried out since 2014.”
“We have successfully freed our areas from terrorist organisations.” Our most significant problem has been the continuation of terrorist assaults, which have been financed, sponsored, and supported by our neighbor, India, including strikes from within Afghan territory. The TTP and JUA terrorist groups have carried out over 1,000 cross-border terrorist strikes against Pakistani military and civilian targets in the year 2020 alone, with the full cooperation of Indian intelligence agencies. “
