ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria on Wednesday said Indian refusal to permit United Nations High Commission on Human Rights (UNHCHR) to send its fact-finding mission to Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) proves that India is trying to hide facts regarding human rights violations in the valley.

Pakistan has demanded United Nations to play its significant role to stop gross human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir by Indian forces, he said while talking to Radio Pakistan.

The spokesperson said that closing of Amnesty International offices, refusal of the fact-finding mission of UNHCHR and no reply to the proposal of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’s fact-finding mission, simply proves that India is trying to blackout the facts in the occupied valley.

Meanwhile, the Indian government has deployed an entire brigade nearly 4, 000 additional troops to stop the people’s movement for freedom and protests in the occupied Kashmir.

According to the reports, Indian army has quietly moved as part of operation ‘Calm Down’ to clear the protesters.

On the other side, the joint Hurriyet leadership has extended the common protest programme till Friday.

Call for the protest programme has been jointly given by the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, and Hurriyet leaders Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.

So far, 98 Kashmiris have been martyred and thousands injured by the Indian forces in ongoing Kashmir Intifada movement.

On the other hand, complete shutdown is being observed on the 68th consecutive day on Wednesday against the brutal killings of Kashmiri people by Indian troops.

Protest strike is being observed in Srinagar, Bandipora, Sopore, Baramulla, Kupwara, Shopian, Pulwama, Islamabad, Badgam and Ganderbal districts.

Thousands of people marched towards Wadwan in Budgam, the home of martyred Javaid Ahmad Dar who was killed by Indian troops firing on 11th September.
