The High Commission of Pakistan observed Kashmir Black Day in support of the struggle of the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The event was largely attended by members of Pakistani Canadians Community.

While speaking on the occasion, High Commissioner Tariq Azim Khan underlined the importance of the documented report of the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights about the atrocities in Indian Occupied Kashmir. He said that it is not possible to crush the spirit of Kashmiris who are struggling for their right to self determination. He urged the International community to constitute a Commission of Inquiry to analyze human rights situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

He informed the audience that the situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir has deteriorated not only from a human rights perspective but also with regards to freedom of information and restrictions placed on the local media; Indian Occupied Kashmir has been closed for media, international observers, doctors and paramedic staff.

He also urged the international community, particularly the champions of human rights, to fulfil their commitments towards the people of Jammu & Kashmir under the UN Security Council resolutions.
