ISLAMABAD, Minister for Human Rights Dr Shireen Mazari
Sunday demanded the European Union (EU) to implement its policy doctrine
over human rights in the IIOJK as well by immediately holding India
accountable for the ongoing gross rights violations.

Addressing a press conference along with FM Shah Mahmood Qureshi and
PM’s Adviser on National Security Dr Moeed Yusuf, Dr Mazari said that
the EU should demand that human rights violations in IIOJK are
unacceptable. “Dual standards on human rights violations should be
discarded and ‘irresponsible and rouge India must be held accountable’,”
she added.

“What Indian forces were committing in IIOJK were clear violations of
4th Geneva Convention and the international community must take
immediate notice,” the minister said.

She referred to the recent prolonging of EU’s sanctions on Russian over
territorial issue of Ukraine and questioned why it was not imposing such
sanctions against India.
