SIALKOT

Local political bigwigs have strongly condemned the unprovoked shelling of Indian Border Security Forces (BSF) on villages along the Sialkot Working Boundary. They urged the international community to take notice of the unabated Indian aggression.

No world organization including United Nations has taken any notice of Indian shelling on Sialkot bordering villages and killings of innocent and peace-loving citizens, cattle and their houses.

The political bigwigs strongly criticized the UN for its criminal silence over the burning issue.
