ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Mushaal Hussein Malik, wife of detained Kashmiri leader Mohammad Yasin Malik, has said that Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK) is undergoing a major health crisis amid the growing Coronavirus cases in the region, as the dwellers have been deprived of all basic health facilities due to the continued lockdown in the area.
The Peace and Culture Organisation chairperson said in a statement that paid tribute to Pakistani medical staff, doctors, and paramedics, who she said put their lives at risk to save lives of their countrymen amid the pandemic.
She said that on one hand Pakistan government and all state institutions are making all-out efforts to save people of the Coronavirus under the well-coordinated and planned mechanism, while on the other, Indian brutal authorities deprived the people of basic health facilities despite the alarming upsurge in the cases of the deadly virus in the region.
Mushaal said that while the prisoners are being released worldwide to protect them from the rising cases of coronavirus, the Indian authorities in IOK arrested 627 people in the name of preventive measures despite the fact that COVID-19 positive cases surged to 58 in the area.
She urged the international community and human right organizations to take notice of the Indian fascist government’s continued brutalities, killing spree and state barbarism.
The Chairperson demanded that Kashmir youths and leadership including her husband who was in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail should be released instantly as the virus is fast-spreading in the region.
