Pakistan will approach the Human Rights Council of the United Nations to send a fact-finding mission to Kashmir to investigate the slaughter of civilians and impose a ban on the use of pellet guns for dispersing the protesters, said the country’s top diplomat on Thursday.

Adviser to the Prime Minister on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz alleged the Indian armed forces were using live ammunition on the mobs which had caused many civilian casualties.

 

He said Pakistan would approach the UN Human Rights Council on its own and also on behalf of the OIC Contact Group on Kashmir, comprising Azerbaijan, Niger, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

“It is a clear manifestation of state terrorism to suppress Kashmiri’s voice for the right to self-determination. The use of lethal force against innocent civilians protesting peacefully is deplorable,” he said.
