Pakistan lodges strong protest with Indian HC over LoC firing
FO condemns deliberate targeting of civilians by Indian troops.
Indian Deputy High Commissioner J. P Singh was summoned to the foreign office in Islamabad today and a strong protest was lodged with him over the recent Indian firing on the LoC.
The foreign office said the deliberate targeting of civilians on the part of Indian troops is indeed condemnable and contrary to human dignity and international human rights and humanitarian laws.
Pakistan urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement; investigate the incidents of ceasefire violations and instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire in letter and spirit for peace on the LoC.
Meanwhile, Pakistan has expressed disappointment over Indian behavior for not allowing Sikh Yatrees to visit their religious site in Hassanabadal.
Foreign office spokesman Nafees Zakaria in a statement said that one hundred Sikh Yatrees had been issued Visas but Indian authorities stopped most of them at Atari.
Spokesman said India does not care about human values and makes excuses one after another.
