Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in a rare admission made a sensational claim that 36 persons have embraced Shahadat only in last month due to Indian ceasefire violations on Line of control which put Indian OSNIT community in overdrive since Pakistani ISPR or Media never reported such high casualties and in fact as per report filled by Pakistan’s DAWN News Paper on 11th May 2020, who spoke to Syed Shahid Mohyiddin Qadri secretary of civil defense and disaster management in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, who put the civilian death toll in the ongoing year to only seven !.
As per Pakistan media reports which idrw.org went through for April only four civilians killed near LOC by Indian Army fire were confirmed, which leaves many to wonder who remaining 32 dead were as claimed by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister. As per DGISPR claims, only 3 Pakistan Army soldiers were killed on Rakhchikri Sector on 3rd April due to Indian Army fire which means nearly 29 are still unaccounted for.
Pakistan declares all killed by Indian Army fire across Line of control weather civilians or Pakistani soldiers as who embraced Shahadat ( Martyrdom) so sometimes it is difficult to know the exact casualties figures which on rare occasions are put out by Pakistani administration. Qureshi’s possible Slip of the tongue and admission of 36 killed last month due to Indian Army’s ceasefire violation means under-reporting of deaths in Pakistan occupied Kashmir is normal and Pakistani Army regularly hides its casualty figures in the area which was first confirmed by Senate Chairman Mian Raza Rabbani in 2017 who said that the number of army troops martyred could not be disclosed due to security reasons by the Pakistani Army.
Indian Army confirmed last month that it has been targeting Terror launch pads in the POK region after Intelligence inputs of terrorists being kept at this launch pads for infiltration into the Indian side of Kashmir for terror activities. Pakistan Army denied any such casualties nor any presence of any terror launch pads as claimed by the Indian Army. Indian OSNIT community has been claiming that Pakistan has lost a high ranking officer of ISI recently at POK due to Indian firing and many Crows (Terrorists ) have been killed. Hizbul Mujahideen Chief Syed Salahuddin confirmed the death of 80 of its Cadres this year alone, leaving many to wonder what could be casualties of other terror organization which operate in the valley. while Indian Army reported death of only 50 Terrorists belonging to Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), Lashkar-e-Tioba (LeT) and Hizbul Mujahideen combined in the Valley this year, this means Indian Army is killing more Terrorists on the other side of the LOC then in the Valley as per the admission of data put out by Qureshi and Salahuddin.
