Islamabad: Chairman Senate Standing Committee on Interior, Senator A. Rehman Malik on Saturday
expressed concern over reports of deployment of additional 38,000 troops in India-held Kashmir and use of cluster ammunition to target the civilian population in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).
He said that use of cluster ammunition to target the civilian population is violation of the Geneva Convention and international human rights laws.
He said that PM Narendra Modi is also intended to change the constitutional status of the disputed territory by carrying out delimitation.
He urged the government of Pakistan to take up the issue of use of cluster ammunition, delimitation and
deployment of extra forces in Indian Occupied Kashmir with United Nations that the ugly face of India could be exposed before the world.
He has also called upon the international community and human rights organizations to take the notice of
Indian Forces aggressions in Indian Occupied Kashmir. He said that the new deployment of extra military is
part of the Modi’s anti Kashmir Doctrine duly assisted by his National Security Advisor adding that India will
use these troops for ethnic cleansing of Kashmiris by torture, repressions and mass killings in Kashmir.
Senator A. Rehman Malik said that it is more likely that the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again
engineer any self-inflicted incident of terror through RAW that Kashmiris could be blamed for it and could
justify its brutalities in the name of so-called operations.
He said that it should be worrying for International Community that instead of accepting the mediation offer from US President Donald Trump, India has deployed additional heavy troops in Kashmir and has started use of cluster ammunition to avert Kashmiris legitimate right of self-determination duly accepted by United Nations. He said that by this new deployment, the India wanted to give a strong message to President Donald Trump that India has no respect for him and his initiative of peace between India and Pakistan to resolve the Kashmir issue.
Senator A. Rehman Malik has said that these troops will also be used to control any protest likely to come
from Kashmiris against the move of changing the status of Kashmiris by abrogating Article 370 and 35 A
violating the UN charter. He has warned the UNO and International Community that India is heading to
launch a big state terrorism and the world to intervene and save thousands of people.
