ISLAMABAD: Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain here on Sunday said that inhuman treatment to Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik was unacceptable, ARY News reported.

He urged the Kashmir committee chairman and members to take the issue seriously and underscored the need to expose Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir effectively.
