Indian soldiers, 2 rebels killed in fighting in Kashmir

Jul 31, 2016, 01:05

Though Ministry of External Affairs has denied the possibility, officials said the agenda points for the meeting were being finalised and are likely to include talks on Kashmir unrest, arrest of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists and the pending visit of the NIA team to Pakistan. Mr. Omar said the Chief Minister was kept fully informed of the July 8 encounter.

The speakers urged the world community to take notice of the recent and continuous violations of global humanitarian law by Indian forces in Kashmir.

(Web Desk) - Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir have continued on 23rd day as more than 60 people have been killed after the martyrdom of Burhan Wani and thousands of people have been injured in the battle with the Indian forces, reported on Saturday.

It is the worst outbreak of violence in six years in the disputed territory at the centre of a tussle between New Delhi and Islamabad for decades, as both claim the region in full but rule it in part.

It comes days after India lashed out at Pakistan, accusing its neighbour of fanning violent protests in Indian-administered Kashmir that have claimed more than 50 lives this month. Pakistani advocate Ishtiaq Chaudhary argued that while Indian forces were suppressing the voice of Kashmiris, Pakistani cinemas were promoting Bollywood that is problematic for the country's policies. We have come out for "jihad" (holy war), and we will carry out jihad.

I don't think that Pakistan's internal political condition is that stable so as to allow any leader to ensure cordial relationship between India and Pakistan, Pakistan's former ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani said.

The meeting also provides an opportunity for us to underline the high importance we attach to achieving forward movement on "security cooperation", he said. Intelligence agencies have also submitted a detailed report to the Home Ministry which clearly states that Pakistani based terror groups with the support of state machinery will try to aggravate the problem in the Kashmir valley.
