MUZAFFARABAD: Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Chaudhry Muhammad Barjees Tahir urged the world community to take notice of the use of pellet guns by Indian army in Kashmir to suppress the peaceful protesters.

He was addressing the joint session of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Council and Legislative Assembly on Wednesday. “Right of self-determination is the basic right of the people of Kashmir and the world community should give this right to them so they can decide about their future. The government of Pakistan will continue to support the rights movement of the people of Kashmir diplomatically, politically and morally at every global forum,” Tahir added.

“The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, will take the Kashmir dispute in UN general assembly to expose the atrocities committed by Indian forces in Kashmir.
