India can’t wash away truth about ‘callousness, inhumanity of occupation forces’: FO

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui on Thursday said India could not wash away the truth by fake news after the images flashed across the world depicting ‘callousness and inhumanity of the occupation forces’.

“The heart-wrenching picture of the three-year-old boy in Sopore will forever remain seared in the imagination of all those who believe in humanity, human rights and fundamental freedom,” she said in her opening statement at a weekly press briefing here at the Foreign Office.

A 64-year-old civilian was shot dead in front of his toddler grandson by security forces in Indian Occupied Kashmir, leaving a big question mark on the human rights situation in the Valley.

Aisha Farooqui said as Indian Occupied Kashmir braced 332nd day of continued brutalization, the sufferings of innocent people could not remain hidden from the world.

“India cannot wash away the truth by fake news and turning its propaganda machinery faster,” she said.

On the Line of Control, she mentioned that 1,546 ceasefire violations took place in the first six months of this year, resulting in 14 martyred and 114 seriously injured.

The FO Spokesperson said Pakistan categorically rejected the grant of domicile certificates in Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K) by the Indian authorities to reportedly 25,000 Indian nationals.
“The certificates issued to non-Kashmiris including, among others, the Indian government officials under ‘Jammu and Kashmir Grant of Domicile Certificate (Procedure), 2020’ are illegal, void and in complete violation of the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions, and International law including the 4th Geneva Convention,” she added. - APP :true,"entry":"chrome-extension://eemcgdkfndhakfknompkggombfjjjeno/main.html"}]},"install_signature":{"expire_d
