The recent wave of violence in IoK drew strong condemnation from the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation. The OIC General Secretariat termed direct shooting at civilians a “wicked terrorist act”.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi tugged at world conscious over the unabated massacre of innocent Kashmiris in the occupied territory. “The world cannot remain so apathetic and detached regarding the Indian atrocities,” said Qureshi in a press conference on Sunday.
“The Indian soldiers have a free hand to commit mass murder. First they used to resort to aerial firing to disperse protesters, but now they are shooting straight.”
He highlighted over 500 casualties in 2018 alone. “In November, 18 unarmed Kashmiris were killed,” he added.
