ISLAMABAD: Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Sardar Masood Khan on Wednesday strongly condemning unprovoked Indian firing in Jandrot, Tatta Pani and Goi sectors along the Line of Control (LoC) and warned the Modi-led government to stop playing with fire in the interest of peace and security of the region.
Five civilians, including two innocent women and two children, were injured and public property was also destroyed as a result of the Indian aggression.
Describing the growing violations of the 2003 ceasefire agreement by India in recent days as an abortive attempt by the Modi regime to hide its failures in India and the repression in Occupied Kashmir, the AJK president appealed to the international community to take cognisance of the New Delhi attempts of disrupting peace in the region.
He maintained that India would never succeed in its heinous plans because the global community has become aware of its hegemonic designs.
Expressing sympathy with those injured in the Indian firing who include 32 years old Rabia, six years old Maria, 26 years old Nasreen, seven years old Momina and Mohammad Munshi, President Masood said that the nation will never forget the sacrifices of those living along the LoC.
The Indian troops hiding behind the bunkers were targeting defenceless civilians particularly women and children, but the same troops have capitulated to the Chinese army in Ladakh.
Referring to the situation in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K), the AJK president said that the lives of more than 8 million Kashmiri people are in serious danger because of the anti-Kashmir policy of the Modi government.
On one hand, he maintained that India is not taking any steps to save the Kashmiri people from Covid-19 while on the other, it is massacring the innocent people particularly the Kashmiri youth in cordon and search operations.
He said that the occupation authorities had killed 14 Kashmiri youth in past three days in Shopian district of IOJ&K and dozens of others were taken into custody, and they are being subjected to the worst torture in jails and detention cells.
Paying glowing tributes to the Kashmiri youth for sacrificing their lives and resisting the Indian barbarity, he said that their sacrifices would certainly culminate in the dawn of freedom.
Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred five more Kashmiri youth in Shopian district on Wednesday.
The troops martyred the youth during a cordon and search operation in Sugoo Hendhama area of the district.
