Sharif again writes to UN for intervention in Kashmir

President Citizen's Forum R K Chadha said that Geelani and other leaders who have very conveniently forgotten that this state belongs to people of Jammu and Ladakh also who are far too more in numbers than the section of Kashmiri Azadi seekers who are permanently on the pay role of Pakistan through Hurriyat leaders.

Talking about the China-PakistanEconomic Corridor (CPEC), Swarup said it passes through the Indian territory under illegal occupation of Pakistan, so naturally New Delhi would be concerned. He was replying to a question on Sharif writing to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for the second time in a month seeking his intervention for sending a fact-finding mission to probe alleged human rights violations in the Valley.

In an interview with the BBC, Sartaj Aziz, Pakistan s national security and foreign affairs adviser to the prime minister, said that Pakistan stands on the right side keeping in view the kind of alliances being forged in the world today, Dunya News reported. The thing that needs to be understood how did the victimisation start.

On the US Secretary of State John Kerry's comment that Pakistan was also a victim of terror, the MEA spokesperson said India did not say it was not.

The letter has also pointed that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's remarks on Balochistan are "an attempt to divert worldwide community's attention from the Kashmirdispute". "That is what the real interference is and this is what Pakistanneeds to stop", he added.

He said that that AJK remains open for any UN mission to visit as it has always facilitated the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), foreign diplomats and tourists.

He, however, lamented that no one in the world including the United States condemned Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir.

According to activists, the Pakistan army used chemical weapons against people after Modi spoke of human rights violations in Baluchistan. "This year, on the Indian Independence Day, Prime Minister Modi's call on human right situation has given courage to people, so Pakistan is more aggressive", UK-based Baloch activist Faiz Muhammad Marri said.
