Pakistan has strongly condemned the restrictions imposed on Eid Milad un Nabi congregations and procession by Indian authorities.

To stop any processions on this auspicious occasion, Indian occupation forces sealed all roads leading to the Hazratbal Shrine in Srinagar and other holy shrines and mosques in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Foreign Office of Pakistan said in a statement,”Imposition of restrictions on celebrations and other congregations on the birthday of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) represents utter disrespect for the sentiments of the Muslims of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. It is also a flagrant violation of their fundamental freedom of religion.”

It further stated,“We urge the international community, the United Nations, and other human rights organizations to take notice of the brutal suppression of the religious rights and freedoms of the Kashmiri people in violation of international laws and conventions.”

Foreign office spokesman said that the Indian government cannot suppress the aspirations of the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir for exercising their right to self-determination as enshrined in the UN Security Council resolutions.

Spokesman further added that for more than 14 weeks, over 8 million Kashmiris are under the inhuman lockdown by over 900, 000 Indian occupation forces.

The Indian government should immediately restore internet and mobile phone services, release all prisoners including civil society members, especially the abducted young boys, remove article 144, Public Safety Act and other draconian laws, and allow the independent media and international human rights observers to visit the region to independently observe the well-being of the Kashmiri people, he added
