Large scale protests broke out in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) on Monday against atrocities and human rights violations committed by Pakistan army.

Pakistan says India is committing atrocities in Kashmir, but what is the establishment doing here? Just see. This is actual human rights violation,” a protester was quoted as saying by ANI. The protester said that the people of PoK were suffering.

A video went viral on social media showing the angry protesters shouting slogans against the Pakistan Army. “These atrocities must stop,” the people can be heard shouting as the Pakistani police baton-charges them. Some protesters can also be seen stone-pelting. A vehicle was also reportedly torched by them.

Allegations were raised that Pakistani military and police had committed brutality against the people in PoK, many of whom hid behind the bushes and took refuge in hillocks to save themselves from the shelling. At least 22 people were arrested after clashes broke out between authorities and demonstrators in PoK.

In another viral video, the residents of Pok were seen raising slogans against Pakistan. The Pok residents in the video said that they didn’t want to be a part of the Pakistan, instead, a part of India. PoK residents in the video can be heard saying that Pakistan was spreading ‘terror’ in the region and the camps set up by Pakistan army were being used to abuse the Kashmiri women.

The citizens demanded that world community should see the atrocities committed by Pakistani establishment and issue be raised in international forums.
