Foreign Office spokesperson Muhammad Faisal on Monday said India will not succeed silencing Kashmiris’ voice through military means.

He said this during an interview while responding to Indian Army Chief’s Bibin Rawat threatening statements, Radio Pakistan reports.

The spokesperson said the only solution to Kashmir issue is to hold an UN-sponsored plebiscite in the occupied territory as promised in the resolutions of the Security Council.

Muhammad Faisal said recent statements emanating from India indicate New Delhi’s frustration as their coercive policies are not working.
