Pakistan’s Parliament on Wednesday unanimously adopted a resolution strongly condemning the continued “unprovoked ceasefire violations” by India on the Line of Control. The resolution was moved by Minister for Law and Justice Zahid Hamid. Radio Pakistan said that the resolution asked the international community to “take notice of the atrocities being perpetrated by the Indian forces on the people of Kashmir”. “The resolution also condemned the continued unprovoked ceasefire violations” by the Indian forces on the Line of Control and the Working Boundary resulting in the loss of innocent human lives including women and children,” it said.

It said deliberate targeting of a civilian bus carrying women children in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir is deplorable. The resolution said India’s lack of cooperation and limited access to UN Military Observer Group to fulfill its
mandate like monitoring of ceasefire violations on LoC is appalling. It also called upon the UN Security Council to take immediate notice of unprovoked Indian actions and statements that are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to strategic miscalculation.
