Srebrenica Massacre

On the 25th memorial anniversary of Bosnia’s Srebrenica massacre, Prime Minister Imran Khan has sent an exclusive message to mourn the life loss of around 8,000 Bosnian Muslims.

In his message on Saturday, PM Imran Khan said that we were shocked that how in a safe heaven like United Nations (UN) this massacre was allowed to take place.

He also requested the world community to never let such incidents happen again. It is important for all of us to learn lesson from such a big loss, he said.

Speaking about the unending brutalities in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK), the premier said  Eight million Indian troops continue to violence and terrorism around Kashmir Valley.

However, we all fear theat the similar sort of Srebrenica massacre might follow in Kashmir. He urged the world community to take proper notice on Kashmir’s matter to avoid such big disasters.

PM Imran Khan also send his prayers and wishes to the brothers of Bosnia.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi alsosaid that the world had a “collective responsibility to ensure that history is not repeated”.

In a tweet, Qureshi said that what was happening in occupied Kashmir and Palestine was “chillingly similar” to the 1995 massacre.

Srebrenica massacre of Bosnian Muslims

In 1995, Bosnian Serb forces killed more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica. Men who were directly or indirectly involved in the massacre hold key positions in Serbia’s political and economic spheres.

In July 1995, forces from Bosnia’s paramilitary allies killed more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the town of Srebrenica. International tribunals later classified the killings as a genocide.

Young people in Bosnia-Herzegovina are working to keep the massacre in the global consciousness.

The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) spent years investigating the massacre. The ICTY found that Bosnian Serb forces began planning the genocide during the final stage of the three-year Bosnian War, in March 1995.
