ISLAMABAD - The response of a letter written by Human Rights Minister Dr Shireen M Mazari to multiple UN officials on gross human rights violations in Indian Occupied Kashmir was still awaited.

She said the persistent human rights violations are being committed in IoK for decades. She said that over two- month passed and the Indian occupation force continuing their siege of Held Valley with even children being detained as Modi government gets ever more desperate and brutal.

“I have sent a letter to United Nations (UN) Under- Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator asking for establishment of an immediate Humanitarian Corridor to supply humanitarian aid to Kashmiris under siege now in the third month by Indian occupation forces.
