Ambassador of Pakistan to Saudi Arabia Raja Ali Ejaz called on the Dr. Abdullah Mosa Altayer Chief Advisor to OIC Secretary General and Acting Secretary General to apprise him on the Indian aggression along the Line of Control (LoC) and use of Cluster ammunition to deliberately target the innocent civilian population.
Raja Ali Ejaz told the Dr. Abdullah that Indian Army on Night of 30th and 31st July 2019 targeted innocent citizens including women and children in Neelum Valley through artillery using cluster ammunition. He added that this blatant aggression resulted in severe civilian casualties and 2 civilians including a 4 year old boy martyred while 11 got critically injured. Ambassador added that Indian Army deliberately used cluster ammunition along the Line of Control targeting civilians’ population which is a sheer violation of Geneva Convention and International humanitarian Law.
 Ambassador said that there is deepening anxiety and fear among the people of Indian occupied Kashmir due to reports of deployment of additional 38,000 Indian paramilitary forces in recent weeks. The instructions to the tourists, religious visitors and students to immediately leave the IOK, and messages urging people to store food supplies, has increased the apprehensions. There are speculations that the Indian authorities might attempt to alter the demographic structure in IOK to bring about a material change on the ground. Ambassador told that India is using the fake intelligence of terror as a ploy to increase its army deployment in IOK.
Ambassador also reiterated Pakistan’s stance to resolve the Kashmir issue peacefully according to the UN resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people and urged upon the International community to use its pressure upon India to stop human rights violations.
