Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal on Thursday said the exact reports about Kashmir were not coming out because of the communication blackout. He said it had been 40 days since India launched inhuman military crackdown and clampdown in the Himalayan valley.
He condemned the continuing blatant human rights violations by the Indian forces. He said recent ceasefire violations along the Line of Control had resulted in several injuries.
The spokesman also appreciated the statement of the EU human rights council. He said the EU had encouraged both the parties to engage in dialogue.
“We have repeatedly said the struggle for freedom of Jammu and Kashmir is a long process. Several steps are on the table and we will apprise the nation as they will unfold,” he said.
