PM convenes special Cabinet meeting on Friday to discuss situation in held Kashmir


ISLAMABAD (Web Desk / APP) – Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has convened a special Cabinet meeting on Friday at Governor House, Lahore, to discuss the rapidly deteriorating situation in the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).

The Cabinet will discuss the oppressive actions of Indian security forces against innocent civilians and the overall situation in Kashmir after brutal assassination of Burhan Wani, a statement issued by PM’s Media Office here on Tuesday said.

Earlier, on the directions of the Prime Minister, the Foreign Office called Indian High Commissioner to the Foreign Office and conveyed strong concerns of Pakistani government and people on rapidly deteriorating human rights situation in Kashmir and increasing oppression by Indian security forces.

In addition, a detailed briefing was also given to the ambassadors of all permanent members of the UN Security Council regarding the atrocities of Indian security forces in Kashmir.

The Prime Minister will take the Cabinet into confidence on these measures and also chalk out future course of action on that issue.

Earlier on Sunday, the Prime Minister expressed his deep shock at the killing of the Kashmiri leader Burhan Wani and many other civilians in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir by the Indian military and paramilitary forces.

“It is deplorable that excessive and unlawful force was used against the civilians who were protesting against the killing of Burhan Wani. Oppressive measures such as these cannot deter the valiant people of Jammu and Kashmir from their demand of exercising their right to self determination in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions,” the PM stated.

He also expressed serious concern over the continued detention of the Kashmiri leadership in Indian Occupied Kashmir and called upon the Indian government to fulfill its human rights obligations as well as its commitments under the United Nations Security Council Resolutions.
