Pakistan has reacted to the killing of terrorists in Kashmir and has called the slain terrorists "innocent Kashmiris." Pakistan's latest statement raises eyebrows as to whether the country is taking responsibility for brainwashing and training terrorists in the Valley. The statement, released by Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that it "condemns the brutal and indiscriminate use of force by the Indian occupation forces that has resulted in the martyrdom of at least eleven young innocent Kashmiris in different incidents in Shopian and Anantnag in Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK)."
Launching an all-out attack against India for its counter-offensive against the terrorists, Pakistan said,
"The mindless killing exposes the ugly, inhuman face of the state-terrorism that India has been perpetrating against the Kashmiris for decades."
"We have reportedly pointed out that the Kashmiri youth is systematically targeted with a view to breaking the will of the Kashmiri people," the statement further read.
“The brave and resilient people of the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir have demonstrated again and again, that no amount of repression including incarcerations, torture and extrajudicial killing could deter them from pursuing the inalienable right to self-determination. Nor could any amount of Indian propaganda to paint the legitamate and indigenous Kashmiri struggle as “terrorism” succeed in misleading the world.,” the statement read further.
Earlier on Sunday, 11 terrorists, including top 'commanders', were killed while one ultra surrendered in three separate encounters in south Kashmir in a huge success for the security forces.
Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police (DGP) S P Vaid had confirmed the reports and said that civilians were being evacuated from the respective areas.
