Parliament Adopts Resolution against Indian Atrocities in Kashmir

The joint sitting of both the houses of parliament on Friday passed a resolution urging the worldwide community to carry out an independent investigation into the gross human rights violations in the Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) and ensure implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions to enable the people of Jammu and Kashmir to exercise their inalienable right to self determination.

"Apart from Pakistan and India, the World Bank is also a stakeholder in the treaty", said Hussain.

The resolution, as per Dawn newspaper, condemned "false Indian claims of carrying out a surgical strike in Pakistan and added that Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadav was involved in spreading terrorism in Balochistan".

State Department spokesperson John Kirby has said that the USA wants India and Pakistan to engage in a "meaningful dialogue" to dissolve the tensions between the two countries, including the Kashmir issue.

The LoC is guarded by the army on both the sides, while the Border Security Force (BSF) guards the worldwide border in India and Pakistan Rangers guard it in Pakistan.

The resolution expressed concerns over the "detention of Hurriyat leaders and human rights activists" and urged the Indian government to release them.

Pakistan felt the need to develop close ties with Russian Federation after the "U-turn" in U.S. policy towards India, one of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's special envoys has said and alleged that America is strengthening ties with India for "political gains". "You should call Zardari sahib and he will teach you how friendly countries help you in troubled times".

PPP leader and former ambassador to the US Sherry Rehman said that the present government should learn a lesson in foreign policy and stop isolating Pakistan. "There are still differences of opinion that exist between them; and as I said earlier, we want them to work through those differences", he said. She said there was no military solution to Kashmir dispute but the right of self-determination of Kashmiri people should be respected.

The adviser said the focal point of all these efforts was to show the world that entire Pakistan was united to condemn Indian brutalities in Kashmir and extend moral, diplomatic and political support to Kashmiri people. Thousands of Indian government troops have been deployed to Indian-controlled Kashmir and over 80 people have lost their lives in the ensuing crackdown.

"This was the start of a new chapter in Pakistan-Russia ties".
