He said that HR day reaffirms our resolve to respect and uphold human dignity and to promote the human rights agenda without any distinction or discrimination.

He suggested the world should called upon India to accept a UN Commission of Inquiry for an independent and impartial investigation of the situation in IOJK.

Moreover, they should urged India to fully respect the human rights and fundamental freedoms of the Kashmiri people.

The Spokesperson said India’s gross and systematic violations of human rights in IOJK have been comprehensively documented.

He referred to the two Kashmir reports of the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Besides, the UN Special Procedure Mandate Holders, international civil society, and the media also documented.

He said the world must focus oppressed people in IOJK, who are being denied their inalienable right to self-determination for over seven decades.

Kashmiris have been facing gruesome repression at the hands of Indian occupation forces acting with full impunity.

Furthermore, he said since 5 August last year these people are enduring the worst form of human rights violations and their suffering has increased manifolds during the global pandemic.

India violates UN charter

In defiance of its obligations under the UN Charter, UNSC resolutions and international law, especially the 4th Geneva Convention, India is seeking to alter the demographic structure of the occupied territory.

Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri Pakistan has instituted wide-ranging people-centric policy measures.

Those measures remain anchored in the Government’s vision to reshape Pakistan in the image of the State of Madinah which  our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) Khatamun Nabiyyin established.

The FO spokesman said Pakistan is constructively engaged with various human rights mechanisms under UN auspices and plays a positive role as a bridge-builder across diverse political and regional perspectives at the UN.

He said progressive legislation, administrative reforms, and institution building, our actions particularly aimed at the disadvantaged. These aim to seek to reduce inequalities and expand access to education, health-care and employment opportunities.

He further highlighted Pakistan’s human rights priorities include: poverty alleviation and empowerment of women and youth.

Besides, achievement of Sustainable Development Goals, ensuring equality of opportunities, and justice for all segments of the society also remain priorities.
