STORY: While addressing a joint session of parliament on Thursday (August 20), Pakistani president Arif Alvi said that India has violated all international laws and Human Rights Charter in Kashmir and that the oppression in the valley can not continue for long time.

“India has violated very paper, every promise, every statement and every agreement. It has violated Geneva Convention, Human Rights Charter, Simla agreement and United Nations resolutions. It just wiped out what their leaders had said. They lied about everything. Therefore, I understand, this will not go on for a long time and God willing, Kashmir will get freedom soon. This Hindutva fascism can not prevail,”he told the lawmakers in Islamabad as he addressed to mark the beginning of the new parliamentary year.

The president said that it was only due to the premier's efforts that the Kashmir matter was taken up by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) thrice during the past year and that this was a victory.

Alvi said Pakistani nation stands united on Kashmir issue.

“There is no party in it. We all are united over Kashmir, entire Pakistan is united on Kashmir. We condemn Indian attempts of August 5 to change demography of Kashmir. We also condemn its anti-human actions and oppression. Hundreds of thousands of people have been martyred and mothers have lost their children there. But we consider them (Kashmiri people) as our brethren. We will never leave them alone.”

Kashmir has been disputed by India and Pakistan since the end of British colonial rule in 1947. Both countries claim it in full but rule it in part.

On August 5, Pakistan condemned India on completion of one year since Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government stripped Jammu and Kashmir - India's only Muslim-majority state - of its special rights.

Both countries claim Kashmir in full but rule it in part.

President Alvi’s remarks came hours after Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said that the Indian occupation forces continued to violate every single right of the Kashmiris including their right to liberty, health, education, expression, assembly and freedom of religion.

He said Pakistan welcomed the call by Human Rights Watch for an independent investigation into these extra-judicial killings of innocent Kashmiris by Indian occupation forces.”

Prime Minister Imran Khan also attended the joint session.

Alvi began his address by highlighting the Pakistan Tehreek-e-insaaf (PTI) government's performance over the past two years.

Members of the opposition shouted slogans and voiced their protest as National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser invited the president to speak.
