Leader of the House in Senate, Raja Zafarul Haq, said Pakistan will continue to extend moral, political and diplomatic support to the people of Indian occupied Kashmir, reported Radio Pakistan.

He was addressing a ceremony to pay tribute to martyred Kashmiri leaders, Maulvi Muhammad Farooq and Khawaja Abdul Ghani Lone, in Islamabad.

Haq said India cannot suppress the freedom movement of the Kashmiris through its aggression and barbarism.

Speaking on the topic of the Indian spy apprehended in Pakistan he said, “Jadhav will be punished according to the law as he has confessed to his crimes”. He called Jadhav a terrorist and killer of innocent people.

“The arrest of Jadhav has exposed India’s nefarious designs against Pakistan to the international community,” said Haq.

Repression in occupied Kashmir also featured prominently in Amnesty International’s 2016-17 report, claiming that the Indian authorities are using repressive laws to curb freedom of expression and silence critical voices.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the Amnesty report said that the Indian forces used unnecessary or excessive force against demonstrators in held Kashmir.
