Needling India on the Kashmir unrest, Pakistan today said the death of a 12 year-old Kashmiri boy due to pellet injuries was the ‘worst example of state terrorism’. Condoling the death of Junaid Akhnoon, Foreign Office (FO) claimed the incident was part of ‘continued Indian atrocities’ in Kashmir.

“The cold-blooded murder is the worst example of state terrorism of the Indian government and is indeed deplorable,” it said in a press release.

“The government and the people of Pakistan convey their deepest condolences on the death of Junaid to his bereaved family,” it added.

The FO said the people of Kashmir are demanding their fundamental human rights, especially the right to self- determination, in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions.

“The grave situation of human rights violations in Kashmir, growing atrocities and genocide of Kashmiris should be a matter of concern to the international community and the UN and warrants an immediate intervention to stop the bloodshed by India,” it said.

The ‘culture of impunity’ by Indian forces must come to an end, it said, adding there should be a “fair, independent and transparent inquiry into the grave human rights violations” of the Kashmiris.

Junaid, who was hit by pellets in the head and chest, succumbed to his injuries on Friday, taking the death toll in the three-month-long unrest in Kashmir to 84.

His death sparked fresh clashes between protesters and security forces at various places in Kashmir on Saturday even as curfew continued in interior areas of Srinagar.

            Very true. India is not a largest democracy. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;India is the largest STATE TERRORIST.

                          Militants often push young children and women in harm's way to promote their agenda. Why - because they are cowards. What was a 12 year old in the streets throwing stones at the police?lt;br/gt;He should have been home safe - where are his parents and why did they let him out. They alone are responsible for the death of their child.

                                    The coward stani army killed dissenting voices of Balochistan brazenly and sermon on Kashmir unrest. stan killed Sabeen Mahmud an unarmed female for she conducted a programme on Balochistan unrest in Karachi, what about the killing of Dr. Mannan Baloch ? Those were the dreaded fangs of state terrorism on part of stan and country with numerous terror manufacturing plants no shame in such killings. What right they have got to comment on Kashmir unrest in India??

                                      The inhuman and uncontrolled acts of police are a matter of concern and shame for all Indians ; it seems that some elements in forces have been sold out, and they work actively for enemies and shoot innocents to evoke anger in mes and force them into agitation. These elements in forces and in politics do not desire peace and stability and in disturbance , they can loot without audit . It is this wanton approach of the savage and corrupt among forces that turned a small event as a death of a terrorist into a full fledged war that shows no signs of ending ; such anti national elements in uniform need to be identified , isolated and punished to defang the enemies .
