Islamabad, February 13 (KMS): The President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry has said that a Pakistan, strong from every aspect, is the guarantor of Kashmir’s freedom from Indian occupation.
Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry in a media interview in Islamabad said, “Pakistan would raise the issue of Kashmir in a full and effective manner at the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Foreign Ministers’ meeting to be held here next month.
He said: “Atrocities against innocent civilians in occupied Kashmir is a disgrace on the face of India. The Hindutva ideology of the ruling party in India has been exposed the world over.”
“The Modi-led fascist Indian government has taken heinous measures aimed at suppressing the struggle for self-determination in occupied Kashmir and changing the proportion of the Muslim population,” he added.
He observed that India had imprisoned the entire leadership of the Hurriyat Conference and unfortunately great leaders of the freedom campaign, including Syed Ali Gilani and Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai were martyred in the custody of Indian forces.
Chaudhry said the government of Pakistan and Prime Minister Imran Khan strongly reacted to the Indian government’s August 5 move. Kashmir dispute will be raised at every forum of the world, he vowed.
He said Prime Minister Imran Khan raised the Kashmir dispute during his address to the UN General Assembly and during his visits to foreign countries. He said India has increased oppression and barbarism in the occupied valley.
The AJK President said that after the decision of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and consultation with the Kashmiri leaders, a massive rally is being organised in Islamabad on February 24 to highlight the Kashmir issue at the international level.
He said the rally will be taken out from National Press Club to D-Chowk in which a large number of Kashmiris, including leaders of religious and political parties of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, besides leaders of APHC will participate.
The rally will end at D-Chowk where Kashmiri leaders will address the participants and highlight the issue, exposing India’s worst state terrorism in occupied Kashmir. The rally will be attended by people from different walks of life.”
