Pakistan on Thursday strongly condemned the extra-judicial killing of five more Kashmiris by Indian occupation forces in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

The Indian occupation forces have martyred at least 30 Kashmiris in ‘fake encounters or so-called “cordon and search operations”’ since 1 October, said a statement released by the Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson.

The statement added that the killing spree of innocent Kashmiris perpetrated by Indian forces continues with ‘shameless impunity’.

It said that the killings further exposes the unspeakable violence being perpetrated by the “Hindutva” inspired extremist BJP-RSS combine that has turned IIOJK into an “inferno where no one, not even innocent civilians, professionals, women, children and elderly” are safe from the “state-terrorism” of the Indian forces.

The FO also condemned the “inhuman and callous” practice of Indian forces of not handing over the mortal remains of martyred Kashmiris to their families in many instances.

“Usurping the fundamental rights of Kashmiri families by denying them the right of proper burial of martyrs further exposes the current Indian government’s moral bankruptcy,” the spokesperson’s office said.
