Pakistan today called on the United Nations and the international community to stop the violence in the Kashmir.

In a statement, Foreign Office said the Prime Minister's Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz expressed grave concern at the constant ceasefire violations by Indian forces at Line of Control.

Aziz accused India of making attempts to discredit the Kashmiri indigenous movement. 

He also alleged that India was trying to change the demography of Kashmir to convert the majority Kashmiri into minority territory, which Pakistan has brought to the attention of the UN.

He reaffirmed Pakistan s unflinching support for Kashmiris in their struggle for the right to self- determination.

Pakistan’s reaction comes on a day when several parts of the Kashmir  were on the boil after security forces inflicted heavy damage on militants, killing Sabzar Ahmad Bhat who had succeeded Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani following his killing last July. 

In a major success for the security forces, Bhat was gunned down along with another militant, at Soimoh village in Tral of Pulwama district, about 36 km from Srinagar, during a cordon and search operation following specific information about the presence of terrorists there.
