5 February, 2021, Muzzafarabad: President Alvi said Pakistan had always raised voice against the atrocities faced by Kashmiris and also for the rights of Muslims living under difficult conditions in India.
He said both the government and the opposition in Pakistan, setting aside their political differences, always held a same stance on Kashmir. “The ultimate direction in this regard is based on national unity.”
He vowed that any further steps with regard to Kashmir would be made in consultation with the stakeholders, particularly the people of Kashmir. The president said Pakistan at times asked India to hold discussions on all outstanding issues, including Kashmir. He, however, regretted that no positive response was received.
He recalled the offer of Prime Minister Imran Khan that Pakistan was ready to take two steps forward if India came to the negotiation table and showed intent to resolve the longstanding issues. He urged India to open its occupied territory for the international observers and media and let them monitor the ongoing worsening situation of human rights.
He said the Kashmiri people had to face the horrendous acts of Indian security forces in the shape of pellet gun attacks that left several including women and children blind for life-time. The Indian oppression, he said, was on rise in the IIOJK as its forces were subjecting the youth to torture, illegal detentions and fake encounters. “These are the same indicators as of Hitler’s era, where the life was made miserable for an ethnic community by setting up genocide camps and inflicting upon them economic hardships,” he added.
