ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s political leadership strongly condemned on Saturday India’s use of cluster bombs across the Line of Control.
Opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif said that the world community and the United Nations should take notice of the Indian act as it is flagrant violation of human rights of Kashmiris.
“The Indian government’s intent to do away with special status of the occupied Kashmir will expose the region to a new round of tensions. Modi is playing with fire. High time that Pakistan raised the issue internationally,” he wrote on Twitter.
