Pakistan has no right to comment on India's internal affairs: Salman Khurshid

Updated: Jul 11, 2016 08:43 IST

New Delhi, July 11 (ANI): Following Pakistan's remark that called the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani "deplorable', former external affairs minister Salman Khurshid on Monday said nobody has the right to comment on the internal affairs of India.

"I think nobody has any business to comment on anything which is entirely our own internal matter," he said.

Pakistan on Sunday condemned the killing of Wahni and Kashmiri protesters who clashed with security forces following Wahni's death.

Khurshid asserted that the security forces have the right take any precautionary step to uphold law and order situation in Kashmir state.

"If there is a state of emergency situation in which our armed and paramilitary forces have to take action, both to protect their own lives as wells secure law and order in our country, they have to take that action and nobody has the right question it," Khurshid told ANI.

He added that proper safeguards have been put in place by Supreme Court, and the state Human Rights to check human rights violations and any foreign entity does not have the right to comment on it.

"Our own safeguards that have been placed by Supreme Court, Human Rights commission of Jammu and Kashmir government, by the Government of India itself, those safeguards will be always applied and put in place but I don't think anybody from outside has the right to comment on this," he said.

The statement released by Office of the Spokesperson, Pakistan, on Sunday said the extrajudicial killing of Wani and scores of other innocent Kashmiris is deplorable and condemnable.

"Pakistan reiterates that the resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute is only possible by the realisation of the right to self determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, as per the UNSC resolutions, through a fair and impartial plebiscite under UN auspices," the statement said.

"Such acts are a violation of fundamental human rights of Kashmiris and can not deter the people of Jammu and Kashmir from their demand for the realisation of the right to self determination," it said.

Islamabad also expressed its concern over the detention of Kashmiri leadership and called upon New Delhi to fulfill the human rights obligations as per the United Nation.

"Pakistan also has serious concerns over the detention of Kashmiri leadership in Indian Occupied Kashmir and calls upon the Indian government to fulfill its human rights obligations as well as its commitments under the United Nations Security Council Resolutions," the statement said.
