Kashmir Solidarity Day

44

Every year, Pakistan observed February 5, as the Kashmir Solidarity Day with the twin purposes of reiterating continued support to oppressed people of Indian occupied Kashmir and to drawing the attention of the international community towards Indian security forces oppressive brutalities and atrocities on the Kashmiris demanding freedom. In October 1947, when Hindu Maharaja through an illegal instrument announced accession to India, they (India) send their security forces and occupied the valley of Jammu and Kashmir. The international community had remained a silent witness to this wholesale selling of the Kashmiris then and continues to be looking at the other side criminally and remorsefully even now. Since 1947, Kashmiris are fighting for their rights, against occupying Indian security forces, and more importantly, to wake up the conscience of the international community, United Nations Organisation (UNO) to implement its resolutions and put pressure on India to grant the Kashmiris their fundamental right of self-determination which it had committed on the floor of UN Security Council. But unfortunately, the Kashmir issue remained an unresolved agenda on the United Nation forum for a very long period and at the same time, the continued silence of the international community in this matter is also awful. And now, the unresolved Kashmir issue has become a black spot on the face of the world body. The despicable attitude of the world community cannot suppress the sentiments and struggle of Kashmiris for freedom. Pakistan from the very beginning has all along been supporting just indigenous, unarmed struggle of the Kashmiris at all international forums. It has been and will continue to extend political, diplomatic, and moral support to the Kashmiris. Pakistan believes that the resolution of the Kashmir dispute is key to stable peace and prosperity in South Asia. While the continued denial of the right of self-determination to Kashmiris and rejection of holding bilateral talks for resolving to linger Kashmir dispute peacefully has exposed the so-called democratic face of India. By observance of Kashmir Solidarity Day on February 5 yet again the freedom-loving Pakistanis want to reiterate their unstinted support that the government and people of Pakistan have for the Kashmiris in their determined fight against Indian occupation and for their securing birth right of self-determination and acknowledgment of their great sacrifices for the noble supreme cause of freedom from Indian occupation. The day is not far off when not only the people of Pakistan but also the international community at large will be supporting Kashmiri’s ongoing freedom struggle.
