Pakistan has strongly condemned continued killing of innocent Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

The Foreign Office Spokesman in a statement in Islamabad on Sunday said extrajudicial killing of Kashmiri leader Burhan Wani and scores of other innocent Kashmiris is deplorable and condemnable.

He said such acts are a violation of fundamental human rights of Kashmiris and cannot deter the people of Jammu and Kashmir from their demand for the realization of the right to self-determination.

The Spokesman said Pakistan also has serious concerns over the detention of Kashmiri leadership in Indian Occupied Kashmir and called upon the Indian government to fulfill its human rights obligations as well as its commitments under the United Nations Security Council Resolutions.

Pakistan reiterated that the resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute is only possible by the realization of the right to self-determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, as per the United National Security Council resolutions, through a fair and impartial plebiscite under UN auspices.

Talking to Radio Pakistan 's News and Current Affairs channel, Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakariya said Pakistan constantly invites the attention of the United Nations, the international community, and the human rights organizations to the plight of Kashmiris in Indian Held Kashmir.

He said detention of Hurriayt leaders by the Indian forces on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr is condemnable.

The Spokesman said Pakistan is deeply concerned over Indian government's attempts to convert Muslim majority into a minority through demographic changes in the occupied Kashmir.

To a question, Nafees Zakariya said the people of Kashmir are a major stakeholder in the Kashmir dispute and their participation in the resolution of this longstanding issue is must.
