Pakistan Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has called on the international community to immediately help arrange medical treatment for victims of violence in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK), especially those who sustained eye injuries from the pellet guns used by Indian forces.
Sharif vowed Pakistan’s unequivocal support in arranging the best available medical facilities to the injured people.
The Prime Minister also urged the international community to exercise its influence over India and seek an end to the bloodshed in the IOK.
“The humanitarian crisis, which is of huge magnitude, in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) has compelled us to immediately pool our material and human resources for treating the victims of brutal state oppression. Even more gruesome is that health-care providers in Indian Occupied Kashmir have not been allowed to treat the innocent victims. The Indian forces have also been targeting the hospitals and ambulances providing health-care to the peaceful, defenseless and innocent protesters.” The Prime Minister said.
“It goes without saying, being blinded has severe consequences for the victims and their families. Nevertheless, they are resolute; they are guided by the light of freedom for the realization of their right of self-determination. The world should realize this. Pakistan shall continue to support them morally, politically and diplomatically,” he added.
