Turkish journalists’ group visits ISPR

A group of Turkish journalists visited headquarters of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), a press release said.

The delegation was briefed about Pakistan-India February standoff, situation along Line of Control (LoC)/ Working Boundary and human rights violations in under siege IoJ&K including implications for regional peace.

The group is visiting Muzaffarabad tomorrow and Chokthi on 18 September, to interact with locals and civilian victims of Indian ceasefire violations.

The Indian military clampdown in IOK continues since August 5, when New Delhi dismissed the occupied territory’s special independent status.

Since then, a curfew is in place in the valley with hundreds of political leaders and activists detained and mobile network and internet remaining shut.

Pakistan has raised the issue in the United Nations, as well as on other international forums.

While it has minimized its diplomatic ties with India, Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected to highlight the illegal activities in his United Nations General Assembly address later this month.

In occupied Kashmir (IoK), the humanitarian crisis is aggravating further as the clampdown by Indian authorities in the Kashmir valley enters on the 43rd consecutive day, today.

According to details, The Kashmir valley remains under strict military siege as hundreds of thousands of Indian troops deployed in every nook and corner continue to keep millions of people confined to their homes.

Normal life is crippled with educational institutions, shops, markets and business establishments remaining closed and public transport off the roads.

Communication services like mobile, internet and TV channels are snapped in the entire Kashmir valley and in some parts of Jammu region.
