Today marks World Human Rights Day and Prime Minister Imran Khan has reinforced calls for acting against the illegal annexation of Kashmir by the Indian government.
The Prime Minister took to his Twitter to speak out against the abolition of the partial autonomy of the disputed territories of Jammu and Kashmir.
“On Human Rights Day, we must appeal to the world’s conscience, to upholders of international law and to the United Nations Security Council to act against the illegal annexation of Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK)by the Indian occupation government,” PM Imran tweeted.
“We salute and stand resolutely with the brave Kashmiris struggling for their right of self-determination,” he added.
Since August 5th, occupied Kashmir has been under military curfew since Indian Prime Minister Modi revoked the constitutional autonomy of the region and arrested thousands of people.
Following this annexation, New Delhi further enforced a total communications blackout by blocking telecommunications and internet services in the disputed territory.
In another tweet, the former cricketer assured the public that his government does not discriminate and remains committed to the protection of the rights of all citizens.
“On International Human Rights Day, Muslims need to remember that the message of equality, justice and protection of human rights for all was given more than 1400 years ago by our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him),” the premier said.
The prime minister added that the message of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)”embodied the cardinal principles of respect for human rights and human dignity”.
December 10th is known as World Human Rights Day as this day marks the the day that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.
