Biggest tragedy in Kashmir as 15,000 ‘lifted out’

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has expressed his fears of widespread bloodshed in India-occupied Kashmir (IOK), calling on the international community to pressure the Indian premier to allow international observers into the valley.

The premier voiced these fears during separate meetings he held with the editorial board of US daily Wall Street Journal and the Human Rights Watch executive director in New York.

“If the UN doesn’t speak about it, who is going to speak about it?” PM Imran Khan said.

“There is a fear of bloodshed in the valley after the lifting of the curfew,” PM Khan told Roth, urging international organisations to pressure Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow observers into the valley.

“Modi’s arrogance has jeopardized the regional peace,” he said, during his meeting with WSJ editorial board. “The media can play an important role in exposing the real face of the Indian premier.”

He additionally explained that nearly 15,000 youngsters have been taken into custody by the Indian forces during the past two months.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has said he would appeal to the United Nations for help as India’s military clampdown in occupied Kashmir enters its seventh week.
