STORY:  Indian troops deployed in Indian Occupied Kashmir have been accused of killing an elderly man in front of his minor grandson during a gun battle with Kashmiri fighters, which also left a trooper dead.

According to police reports, Kashmiri freedom fighters opened fire from a mosque attic in the northern town of Sopore on Wednesday (July 01), setting off an encounter with security forces, during which 65-year-old Bashir Ahmed Khan was killed.

However family members and locals refuted this claim, saying that he was dragged out of his car after the showdown and shot dead in cold blood by paramilitary forces. Khan was reportedly a resident of Srinagar.

His 3-year-old grandson, who was travelling with him in the car , was later pictured sitting on the chest of the bloodied body of the dead man.


The photo of the child sitting on the body of his dead grandfather went viral on social media, giving rise to a flood of outrage across Pakistan.


“ The heart wrenching picture of the 3-year-old boy in Sopore yesterday will forever remain seared in the imagination of all those who believe in humanity, human rights and fundamental freedoms. India cannot wash away the truth by fake news and turning its propaganda machinery faster,” Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Aisha Farooqui told a weekly briefing in Islamabad on Thursday (July 02).

 

Farooqui said  it was the 332nd day of the “continued brutalization of innocent people in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir”, whereas 14 innocent civilians have been martyred and 114 injured as a result of 1546 ceasefire violations by India on the Line of Control in the first 6 months of 2020.


Muslim-majority Kashmir is claimed in full by both  India and Pakistan, although they hold parts of it. A small part of Kashmir is also held by China.

Since they were partitioned in 1947, nuclear-armed India and Pakistan have fought three wars , two of them over Kashmir.

 

For decades, freedom fighting Kashmiri groups in Jammu and Kashmir have been fighting against Indian rule for independence, or for unification with neighboring Pakistan.

According to several human rights organizations, thousands have reportedly been killed in the conflict since 1989.

 

Farooqui said Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi received Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad, the U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation, in Islamabad on Wednesday. During the meeting, Khalilzad had condoled over the terrorist attack on the Pakistan Stock exchange earlier this week.  


“During his meeting with Foreign Minister Qureshi, Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad also expressed condolences on the loss of lives in the terrorist attack on Pakistan Stock Exchange in Karachi and extended U.S. support. The Foreign Minister praised the bravery of the security personnel and thanked Ambassador Khalilzad for the condolences on the terrorist attack, which was externally supported and was another manifestation of the state-sponsored terrorism being perpetrated against Pakistan, which we condemn in the strongest possible terms. Pakistan has been consistently sensitizing the international community about the Indian leadership’s threatening statements to use terrorism as a tool to destabilize Pakistan. We has already shared with the international community, incriminating evidence about the Indian Intelligence Agency RAW’s involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan,” she said.



Four gunmen attempted to attack the Pakistan Stock Exchange building in Pakistan’s port city of Karachi on Monday (June 29) in an attack claimed by ethnic Baloch separatists BLA.

All four terrorists, three private security guards and a police officer were killed in the encounter that lasted 8 minutes, and has drawn widespread praise for the security agencies who thwarted  the attack.

Pakistan blamed India for supporting the attackers, setting off an international row.
