Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari criticised India on Tuesday and said New Delhi has continuously violated United Nations' resolutions on occupied Kashmir and Indian security forces are committing state terrorism in the region, Radio Pakistan.

She added that Indian forces committing human rights violations in the valley will not be able to suppress the freedom movement of the innocent Kashmiri people.

"New Delhi is continuously violating United Nations (UN) Security Council resolutions on Kashmir and attempting to change the demography of the held valley."

"India is escalating tension in the region," said Mazari, adding that, New Delhi is resorting to Pulwama incident to divert attention from the upcoming elections in the country.

Mazari further maintained that India has always "jeopardised peace of the region through its aggressive measures".

The minister maintained that instead of fanning provocation, India should pay attention towards resolving the issues being faced by its people.

"The internal situation of India is also deteriorating day by day as the minorities are not safe in India," the human right minister said.

"Kashmir is not a dispute not just between two countries, but it is an international dispute as it is with UN security council."

She lamented that the world has turned a blind eye to Indian human rights abuses in Kashmir, which reflects hypocrisy on the part of countries that talk about human rights and democracy.

The violations are being highlighted by international organisations, despite all this evidence, India must be tolerated like a spoilt brat, the minister stated.
