    Everyone’s darling India has been continuously shelling civilian targets all night.

    They have attacked:

    – Ambulances
    – Hospitals
    – Homes
    – School Buses
    – Busy towns like in the centre of Khuiratta AJK

    The world has asked Pakistan to uphold Geneva convention which Pakistan has always done and returned their pilot.

    However, where is France’s, US, UK, Australian et all calls for Indianto uphold

    International law and respect innocent civilians in Occupied Kashmir and Pakistan Admikistered Kashmir from where I hail.

    Stop her gross Human Rights violations which has increased immensely since Modi and BIP took office in New Delhi.

    When innocent men, women and children are massacred, displaced and women raped by the Indian Occupying Security Forces on the behest of the government it NO LONGER becomes a bilateral issue but a multilateral where international law be enforced wilfully or by force.

    World pls make India accountable for gross human rights violations and flouting of international law.

    Furthermore the other thing I want you to know is that unlike Pakistan Indian army has not been engaged in armed conflict other than used as an instrument of terror and suppression. Therefore these terroroist Indian soldiers are simply following protocol laid out by a State sponsor of Terror.
