"Pakistan should look inwards rather than trying to act smart by interfering in Indian matters. Pakistan should be more concerned about PoK," Naidu told reporters here. Pointing at Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), Naidu was hinting at the protests which happened during recently held elections there.

Last evening, the Pakistan parliament unanimously passed a resolution, condemning the alleged human rights violations in Kashmir and demanding the UN Human Rights Commission to send a fact finding mission to the valley to investigate it. It said the use of pellet guns is "deplorable and is against the canons of international humanitarian laws".

The resolution reiterated Pakistan's continuing political, moral and diplomatic support for the struggle in Kashmir. The resolution pressed the government to urge the international community, inter-governmental and inter-parliamentary organisations, international non-governmental organisations and civil society and media to ask India to immediately stop alleged violations of the human rights.

It also demanded that the Human Rights Commission in Geneva should be requested to immediately send a fact finding mission to Kashmir to investigate alleged Human Rights violations by Indian security forces.
