Pak efforts against terrorism recognised worldwide: FO

ISLAMABAD: The entire world including the United States of America has recognised the contribution of Pakistan in terms of economic and human loss against the fight of terrorism.

This was said by spokesperson for the Foreign Office Nafees Zakaria during his weekly media briefing here Thursday. He said, "The international community has been satisfied with the efforts and achievement of Pakistan against terrorism."

He said the recently 'leaked' several videos openly showing use of human shield, beating, abusing and humiliating Kashmiris in the Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) by the Indian occupation forces, is a clear manifestation of human rights violation.

He said the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has shown its full support to Kashmiris. He, however, said the OIC fact-finding commission was denied access to IHK.

Nafees Zakaria said hundreds of innocent children and defenceless civilians were being mercilessly killed and deliberately targeted by the Indian forces in the IHK. The brute operation against the educational institutions and students could not suppress the rights to self-determination of the Kashmiris, he added.

“Social media is being banned to ensure that `reports of crimes’ against humanity committed by Indian occupation forces do not go out of IHK, adding that Indian brutalities, murder and blinding could not deter Kashmiri pro-freedom struggle and spirit. We remain committed to extending our unflinching moral, political and diplomatic support to the Kashmiris", he added.

Referring to the article published recently in `The Guardian', the spokesperson said, "The article calls upon the international community to stop the systematic brutality being committed by Indian forces in IHK." He said the genocide of Kashmiris should be brought to a halt.

The spokesperson said the will of the Kashmiris in IHK was clearly visible in their outright rejection of sham elections there.

Replying to a question, Nafees Zakaria said the Indian reaction to be seen at the backdrop of the state involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan.
