The world must not allow massacres like Srebrenica to take place in Kashmir: Imran Khan | Instant News

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said he feared a massacre similar to the 1995 genocide in Srebrenica could take place in Kashmir and urged the international community to pay attention and prevent it from happening.

Khan spoke at the 25th anniversary of the massacre, which killed at least 8,000 mostly Muslim men and men who were chased through the forests in and around Srebrenica by Serbian troops in what is considered the worst massacre of civilians in Europe since World War II. It has been confirmed as an act of genocide.

Pakistan’s prime minister said he still remembers when the genocide occurred.

“We were shocked and surprised how this massacre was allowed to occur in a safe place for the United Nations. I still feel shocked [over] how such a thing can be permitted by the world community. “Mr. Khan was quoted as saying by Dawn newspaper.

He said it was important to learn lessons from the massacre and talk about concerns about occupied Kashmir.

“We see problems for the people of Kashmir. 800,000 troops have surrounded eight million people in Kashmir. We are afraid something like that will happen there too. “

He urged the world community to pay attention and never let such a massacre happen again.

“From the Pakistanis I sent me Greetings and the best wishes for the Bosnian people, “Khan said.

… now, more than ever to vote for those who do not speak. The press in Kashmir has been operating under tremendous reporting pressure from the conflict zone, but since August 2019 we have been in uncharted territory. Kashmir Walla is one of the oldest independent media outlets in Kashmir and has held successive lockouts as well as efforts to pressure us, fighting back with factual authoritative land reports.
