Indo-Pak relations are not getting any better with India stubborn enough to continue its diplomatic isolation of Pakistan despite the efforts of Pakistan and PM Khan to neutralise the matter through coordination between the two countries to investigate the situation and to bring the responsible people to justice rather to blatantly blaming without any evidence. Although, PM Khan has remained rather calm on India’s measures, there has been some boiling up among the Pakistani politicians who find Indian measures against Pakistan to be a little too extreme and have spoken up about it.
Among them is Pakistan’s Information Minister, Fawad Chaudhary, who recently addressed a conference in the federal capital on Monday, where he stated,’ Kashmir was never a part of India and will never be. The people cannot be suppressed by force. Peace cannot be established while deploying ten Indian personnel on a single Kashmiri. Under no circumstances is it allowed for any government to open fire on peaceful demonstrators,”adding that, New Delhi will never succeed in muzzling the organic freedom movement in Kashmir.
Chaudhry stressed that “The treatment meted out to Kashmiris only adds fuel to the fire… genocide in the valley must come to an end”.
He noted that the entire Pakistani nation stood behind its armed forces and all the political parties were on the same page when it came to the defence of the motherland.
Despite his stern stance on the matter, he still stressed on the importance of both countries meeting up and cooperating to solve such issues. “Pakistan wants peace and we invite India for dialogue to resolve all outstanding issues between us,” he said. “A little introspection on India’s part would make it clear that they’ve committed more mistakes than us,” he added. He firmly believes that people of Kashmir should be given the right to self-determination.
Last year, the United Nation’s office of the High Commission for Human Rights (OHCHR) issued its first-ever report on the situation in Kashmir.

The report highlighted the protests that took place in the wake of Burhan Wani’s martyrdom in 2016 and the inhumane use of pellet guns by the Indian forces against the demonstrators in the occupied valley.
