They have an unalienable right to self-determination which cannot be blocked or obscured by any Indian action.

Federal Minister for Human Rights Senator Kamran Michael made these comments while leading a protest against Indian aggression in Kashmir outside the UN office in Geneva.

Government and the people of Pakistan remain firmly committed in their moral, diplomatic and political support to the Kashmiris indigenous movement for resolution of Kashmir dispute in accordance with relevant UN resolutions. The minister further elaborated that Indian forces are not only killing Kashmiris but also all humanity.
