British parliamentarians on Wednesday "agreed to continue working to ensure relief from the suffering facing the people of Kashmir," said a statement from the High Commission of Pakistan in London.
High Commissioner Mohammad Nafees Zakaria held a closed meeting in the House of Commons in London with a large number of parliamentarians from the United Kingdom facilitated by the Parliamentary Group of all parties on Kashmir (APPKG).
Lawmakers acknowledged that the Kashmir problem is an internationally recognized dispute and awaits the implementation of the relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council.
"They noted with concern the tragic situation of human rights," as well as the blockade imposed by India that has led to a "serious humanitarian, political and security crisis in the occupied territory," the booklet reads.
In the briefing given by him, the high commissioner highlighted how India has been "perpetuating serious human rights violations in the occupied territory incessantly and with impunity."
He stressed that the total blockade in Kashmir occupied by India for 31 days "without communication with the outside world, and reports of murders, kidnappings, illegal detentions, rape and use of pellet guns against defenseless cashmerers was a matter of deep concern. . "
Zakaria also emphasized that since access to the media was practically non-existent in the region, "the real scale of atrocities could be much more given the trajectory of torture, killings in false encounters, forced disappearances and other inhuman treatment of the Indians."
He denounced the human rights violations that took place in the 21st century "for the so-called largest democracy in the world."
According to the statement, the high commissioner "praised all British parliamentarians for becoming a voice for the oppressed people" of the occupied territory and urged "an immediate and unconditional end to the bloodshed of cashmerers."
In addition, he stressed the need to provide justice to the people of Kashmir and "the responsibility of the perpetrators as required by international human rights organizations." He called on internationally renowned NGOs and members of civil society, such as OHCHR, IPHRC, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the United States Human Rights Report on India and the International People's Court to carry out their Due role in the matter.
The High Commissioner reiterated Pakistan's determination to continue supporting the oppressed cashmere and extend their moral, political and diplomatic support for the "realization of their inalienable right to self-determination." He said Pakistan will do everything possible to guarantee the delivery of justice to the cashmere.
"Both sides agreed to build on the conversation and chart a path to follow to end the ongoing human tragedy," the statement said.
