Addressing on the occasion, the speakers said that the purpose of the march was to make the masses aware about the Kashmir cause. They said rallies will be organized across Azad Jammu and Kashmir on the occasion of Right to Self-Determination Day to be observed tomorrow (5th January).
The participants of the march said that the Kashmiri people were demanding of the UN to hold a free, fair and impartial referendum in Jammu and Kashmir to enable them decide their fate by themselves. They maintained that it is the legal and moral responsibility of the international community to play role in ending India’s unconstitutional military occupation of Jammu and Kashmir and settling the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
The speakers maintained that through a public rally in Muzaffarabad, tomorrow, (January 5), the Indian rulers would be warned that the Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory and its fate will be decided only by the Kashmiri people.
