crimes. He condemned the use of pellet guns saying these blinded
innocent children and women. India is making attempts to change the

introducing controversial legislation. He, however, said despite all
these tactics, the Kashmiri people stand firm in their struggle to get
freedom from the cruel Indian clutches.
The President demanded that India allow the international media to
visit the illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to see the ground
situation. In addition, action should be taken in the light of the UN
Human Rights Commissioner report on Kashmir.

to the world that what is happening in Srinagar and occupied Kashmir.

Kashmir and it was shown to them that here is peace and how much
ceasefire violations at LoC are being committed by India but contrary
to this India did not allow world delegations to visit its own side,

Kashmir so that the world should come to know what you are doing.

on in occupied Kashmir then the conscience of the world and Muslim
Ummah will be awakened. He said that it is our duty to show the visual
evidence to the world. He said that India should take first step and
should open its occupied lands; media, delegations and assembly
members should visit and see what is happening. He said that

only used the pellet guns against the Muslims.
