Islamabad: While condemning the atrocities committed by the Indian occupation forces in the Indian held territory of Jammu and Kashmir, the Kashmiri leaders hailing from both sides of the line of control on Thursday called on the international community to redouble its efforts to resolve the lingering dispute that has been main cause and consequence of rights violations in the region.

Addressing a mammoth solidarity rally at D-Chowk in Islamabad, the AJK leadership across the political spectrum expressed their solidarity with Kashmiri masses who have been relentlessly reeling under the Indian state terrorism. Taken out from the National Press Club the rally was led by the AJK president Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhary. The rally was attended by a large number of Kashmiris settled in twin cities Rawalpindi/Islamabad and other areas. Whereas a sizable number of the participants travelled from different districts of Azad Kashmir to Islamabad to join the rally.

Kashmiri leaders while expressing their commitment to the Kashmiris’ just cause made it clear that the peace and stability in South Asia was inescapably linked to the settlement of Kashmir dispute. Kashmiris, they said, want a just and peaceful resolution of the dispute in accordance with UN resolutions and universally accepted principle of right to self-determination.

In his speech the AJK president Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhary said that the leadership of Azad Kashmir unequivocally condemn and reject whatever decisions the Indian government has unilaterally taken on Kashmir since 5th August 2019. Kashmir, he said, is a disputed territory and no piece of legislation by the Indian parliament can change the region’s disputed status. In order to bring material change in the region he pointed out that Indian authorities have issued fake domiciles to 4.2 million Hindus so that the proportion of the population could be changed in the region. These wicked conspiracies being hatched against Kashmiris, he said, were meant to install Hindu Chief Minister in Kashmir.

 

Referring to Modi’s repressive policies, Barrister Sultan said, “BJP government’s hostile policies in Kashmir were being criticized and condemned all across the world. “Rising tide of communalism, Islamophobia, and persecution of minorities by Hindu extremists have left India virtually isolated at global stage”, Barrister Sultan said adding that Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi admitted it publicly.

Barrister Chaudhary on the occasion congratulated the people and leaders of all parties for making solidarity rally a success. The rally, he said, has sent a positive message that Kashmiri leadership regardless of their schools of thought were united on a single platform on the Kashmir issue.

He said that today’s rally was organized in the backdrop of decisions taken during All Parties Kashmir Conference. He declared that a similar kind of rally will be held in Muzaffarabad in the third week of March. He said that more steps will be taken in the future to highlight the Kashmir issue at the international level. In the next phase, he said, public rallies and protest demonstrations against India would be organised in important world capitals including London, New York, Brussels, Paris and other European countries to expose Indian brutalities in occupied Kashmir.
