KARACHI, Pakistan

Reiterating Islamabad’s demand for international intervention in Indian-administered Kashmir, Pakistani prime minister on Tuesday appealed to the “world’s conscience” to act against the “illegal annexation” of the valley with New Delhi.

On the World Human Rights Day, Khan condemned the “gross” human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir, especially after New Delhi’s controversial revocation of the valley’s long-standing special rights last August, which sparked worldwide criticism.

Human Rights Day has been observed every year on Dec. 10 since 1948, when nations in the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
