Indian occupied Kashmir turned into prison: AJK PM


ISLAMABAD: Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider on Monday said that occupied Kashmir has been turned into a prison by the Indian authorities.

While talking to US President Trump’s Adviser Sajid Tarar in Islamabad, Haider urged the US to play its role for resolution of Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN Security Council’s resolutions.

Haider said Indian forces are targeting civilian population on the line of control. He said the Indian forces are using the banned cluster bombs.

Voicing concerns over the worsening security situation in occupied Kashmir, the AJK premier said the occupied territory has been turned into a prison by the Indian authorities.

Tarar, Pakistan-origin American, said Trump believes in a peaceful resolution of Kashmir dispute. He condemned the Indian human rights violations in occupied Kashmir.

The authorities continue to impose strict curfew across IoK on the 15th consecutive day to prevent people from holding demonstrations against India’s move of abrogating special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
