PM Nawaz to chair cabinet meeting to discuss Kashmir issue

"I don't think Pakistan has any right to talk about India and Kashmir".

"Bloodshed will result in nothing. Let us all come together to develop a peaceful and virtuous society which is just and guided by principles of secular democratic temperament", she said, while emphasising upon respect for each other's perspective, which is the essence of a democratic system. Martyrs' Day, also known as Youme Shuhada-e-Kashmir is observed on July 13 every year by Kashmiris to pay homage to 22 Kashmiris who died in 1931 fighting against the rule of Maharaja Hari Singh.

The Foreign Secretary said that killings of innocent Kashmiri people could not be condoned under the pretext of terrorism. "People were forcefully taken to create a normalcy situation", Abdullah said.

The mob also torched a police vehicle there in which some policemen were trapped. Indian security forces have been using pellet guns as a nonlethal option for crowd control after almost 120 people were killed during weeks of protests in 2010.

While law enforcement officials have a duty to protect lives and property, they should use nonviolent means as far as possible, only use force when unavoidable and in a proportionate manner, and use lethal force only when absolutely necessary to save lives, Human Rights Watch said.

In Awantipora town of south Kashmir's Pulwama district, a mob attacked the unguarded house of a police officer severely beating the officer's wife and daughter.

Both the road to the Baltal Yatra base camp and the highway connecting the Ladakh region with the Valley pass through Ganderbal district.

Islamabad-United Jehad Council and both factions of Hurriyat Conference carried out rally and staged sit-in in front of UN Office in Islamabad and condemned the ongoing killings of Kashmiris by Indian security forces in occupied Kashmir after martyrdom of Commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani.
