Pakistan targets India in Kashmir case, alleges human rights violations & use of chemical weapons

Islamabad: Pakistan unveiled a dossier on Sunday and claimed it contained details of alleged human rights violations committed by Indian authorities in Kashmir.

“We have decided that we must play our part and reveal the true face of this (Indian) government which claims to be the largest democracy in the world,” Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said, PTI reported.

Qureshi added that the dossier will be shared with the United Nations and the rest of the international community.

The Foreign Minister, who launched the 131-page document with National Security Advisor Moeed Yousaf and Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari at a press conference in Islamabad, said the dossier is based on 113 references, including 26 from international media, 41 from Indian think tanks, and only 14 from Pakistan.

Qureshi called on the United Nations to register the names of individuals and units involved in alleged war crimes and impose sanctions on them.

The document also alleged the use of chemical weapons in Kashmir.

Speaking in this regard, Qureshi said this was a total violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention, adding that it required an impartial international investigation.

India has repeatedly told Pakistan that Jammu and Kashmir “was, is and will forever be” an integral part of the country.

New Delhi also advised Islamabad to accept reality and stop all anti-Indian propaganda.

Tensions between India and Pakistan have increased since New Delhi repealed Article 370 of the Constitution to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, 2019.

The decision sparked strong reactions from Islamabad, which degraded diplomatic relations with New Delhi and expelled the Indian envoy.

India has declared categorically to the international community that the removal of Article 370 is its internal affair.
