Pakistan exploits Kashmiri youth as pawns in its proxy war: EFSAS director Junaid Qureshi tells UNHRC

Geneva:  European Foundation for South Asian Studies (EFSAS) director Junaid Qureshi has targeted Pakistan and said the country's military establishment has used youth from Jammu and Kashmir to join its various terrorist proxies like Hizbul Mujahideen, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed since 1980s.

Kashmiri Junaid made the comments at the 45th Session of UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

“Legally, Pakistan has no locus standi on Jammu & Kashmir," he said.

“Thousands of Kashmiris who did not agree were killed by these terrorist proxies. Those who subscribed to the Indian Constitution, were specifically targeted”, said Junaid.

He added, “Today, led by its Foreign Minister, Pakistan is demanding a return of the autonomy that Jammu & Kashmir had earlier enjoyed under the Indian Constitution. The same Constitution against which, it started this proxy war in which Kashmiris were massacred.”

“Will Pakistan be allowed to get away just like that?”, he questioned.

He urged the council to summon Pakistan for an audit. 

"Hold it, accountable for the destruction of my homeland."
