[DAWN] A Pakistain Army soldier was martyred after Indian troops resorted to "unprovoked" firing from across the Line of Control in Hajipir sector of Azad Jammu and Kashmir|
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it
Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Thursday.
The soldier was identified by the military's media wing as Sepoy Ghulam Rasool, who hailed from Bahawalnagar.
According to media reports, Indian troops had targeted the same sector with intermittent shelling on Monday. However,
some men learn by reading. A few learn by observation. The rest have to pee on the electric fence for themselves...
no losses had been reported at the time.
Earlier on Saturday, the Foreign Office (FO) had summoned Indian Charge d` Affairs Gaurav Ahluwalia to lodge a protest against "unprovoked ceasefire violations" by the Indian army.
According to a statement issued by the FO, Director General (SA & SAARC) Dr Mohammad Faisal had urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement. He said that the Indian side should permit UNMOGIP to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions.
The statement had said that in the last ceasefire violations on September 6 in Khuiratta sector of the LoC, the Indian forces had deliberately targeted innocent civilian participants of peaceful rallies organised to show solidarity with the people of Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir. Four civilians had sustained serious injuries in that incident.
The incidents of firing along the LoC come as tensions remain high between India and Pakistain over the former's move to revoke occupied Kashmir's special autonomy.
