Indian-Held-Kashmir (IHK) is burning in the aftermath of the killing of Burhan Wani. According to reports, Indian forces have killed more than 45 people so far, injured more than 1900 people. Pellet gunshots showered at the Kashmiri have damaged the eyesight of many and completely blinded more than 35 people. 

Prime Minister (PM), Nawaz Sharif has rightly decided to observe Wednesday, 20 July as a ‘black day’ against the atrocities in IHK. The PM has also stressed that “Pakistan will continue to extend moral, political and diplomatic support to the Kashmiris in their just struggle for the right to self-determination”. PEMRA has instructed Pakistani channels not to air Indian movie clips during their programmes. Further steps could be suspension of trade relations with India and scaling back the diplomatic relationship. 

Moreover, the international community, especially the United Nation Security Council must understand that the Kashmir issue cannot be neglected. Any untoward incident can escalate yet another full-fledged war between India and Pakistan.
