September 25, 2019

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday highlighted the plight of eight million Kashmiris who are suffering “in an open jail” in India-occupied Kashmir and warned against the possible massacre of residents once the curfew is lifted.

The premier shared his conversations with various people he met in New York who had relayed to him their stories of not being able to contact their relatives and family members.

“We know that [even] hospitals aren’t functioning,” he said, adding that the prevelant conditions were tantamount to “war crimes” under the Geneva conventions.

“I fear that after the curfew is lifted, there would be a massacre” by the Indian troops deployed there said the premier.

“I also fear that whatever happens in Kashmir, India would blame Pakistan for it.”
