Imran urges UN to halt India’s continuous ceasefire violations along LoC

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Saturday asked United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to take notice of Indian aggression along the Line of Control (LoC) and use of violence in held-Kashmir.

“The inaction of the United Nations in the face of a massive abuse of human rights of Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Kashmir and a serious threat to regional peace and security by India’s increasing military aggression against Pakistan along the LoC and Working Boundary,” a communique said.

“Yes inexplicably the UN has not moved to stop this brazen Indian aggression,” he added. Imran reminded that the India’s persistent to allow UN Observers in held-Kashmir is a clear violation of the UN charter. New Delhi must immediately also allow the observers on its side of the LoC.

“Shamefully, India has also moved to deliberately targeting innocent Pakistani civilians including travellers in civilian buses,” he added.

The PTI leader went on to say: “India has now gone beyond all norms of international state interaction even when states are in a warlike situation as it has attacked an ambulance with clear markings.”

He further said, “This increasing targeting of innocent civilians and ambulances is against all norms of international law including the laws of war.”

Frequent incidents of cross-border fire have been witnessed since a heightened situation in occupied Kashmir. More than 100 protesters have lost their lives to the security forces in the valley while dozens blinded by use of pellet guns.

The two countries have been at loggerheads since the killing of a populist rebel leader Burhan Wani by the occupied forces in the valley on July 8.

New Delhi also accuses Islamabad of being involved in an attack on the army base in Uri on September 18, in which 19 Indian soldiers were killed. Pakistan has denied the charge, which India levelled without any substantial investigation or evidence.
