Pak must stop supporting violence: India


India today hit back at Pakistan over its comments on the alleged human rights abuse in Kashmir, saying Islamabad must first stop violence emanating from its soil.
 The Pakistan Foreign Office today alleged human rights violations in Kashmir. It also raised concern over shifting of woman separatist leader Aasiya Andrabi to Tihar jail and detention of Hurriyat leaders Shabir Shah, Masarat Alam Bhat.   "They sometimes forget that what they preach they don’t follow. Time and again we have told them to stop supporting separatists and militants, who are operating out of Pakistan. That is something (on which) they have taken no action. Our position on this remains clear and consistent," Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in response to a question at a media briefing. PTI
