Pakistan condemns Yasin Malik’s conviction by Indian court in motivated case

Pakistan strongly condemns another abhorrent attempt of the Indian Government to deprive the Kashmiri people of their true leadership in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

In a statement, the Foreign Office Spokesperson said that in a highly reprehensible development, Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik has been convicted on Thursday in a manifestly dubious and motivated case, dating back to 2017, filed against him by National Investigation Agency (NIA).

He said predictably, the one-sided case has not only convicted Yasin Malik on fictitious charges in defiance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights but also attempted to make conjectural insinuations about Pakistan.

The Spokesperson said the renewed haste with which cases against Kashmiri leadership are being pursued further exposes the nefarious Indian designs to undermine historic and distinct political and cultural identity of IIOJK.

He said the inhuman incarceration of Mr Yasin Malik in the infamous Tihar jail, his sham trial in concocted cases, fallacious conviction, and malfeasant attempts at defiling the legitimate struggle of the Kashmiris for their right to self-determination as "terrorism" further illustrate India as a serial violator of human rights and usurper of the fundamental rights of the Kashmiris.

He urged the Indian government to refrain from victimizing the true representatives of the Kashmiri people through inhuman detentions and trumped up charges.

The Spokesperson said Pakistan also urges the international community to counsel India to drop all fabricated charges against all political leaders of IIOJK including Yasin Malik, ensure their safety and well-being, and provide them complete legal protections, including the right to a free and fair trial.
