Islamabad, August 04 (KMS): National Assembly (NA) Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf has said the Indian government’s actions of August 5, in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) are unconstitutional and against the United Nations (UN) resolutions.
Raja Pervaiz Ashraf talking to APP news agency regarding ‘Youm-e-Ishtehsal’ to be marked, tomorrow, said the international community should break the silence for the rights of Kashmiris and play its role in resolving the Kashmir conflict according to the UN resolutions.
The NA Speaker said the unilateral move of the Indian government to end the special status of Kashmir on August 5, 2019 was unconstitutional and against the UN resolutions. Contrary to UN resolutions, Kashmir was an unfinished agenda of the subcontinent’s division, he added.
The UN and international community should play their role to resolve the Kashmir issue, he said, adding that the Indian forces were treating innocent people of the occupied Kashmir inhumanly and the way India had exploited the Kashmiris’ due rights by depriving them of their right to self-determination was beyond the condemnation.
The Speaker said more than 900,000 Indian troops were inflicting atrocities on Kashmiris and they were being kidnapped so that a large number of them were going missing. He said the government of Pakistan had always supported the Kashmiri brothers and sisters and would continue their support till the day they received freedom from the Indian clutches.
Raja Pervaiz Ashraf asked the Indian government to consider the human rights of Kashmiris and their personal freedom, feelings and emotions and withdraw its unconstitutional move of August 5, 2019, designed to change the geographical status of Kashmir. He said Kashmir’s freedom movement was not going to fade as Kashmiris yearning for freedom was growing with every passing day.
Meanwhile, Deputy Speaker Zahid Akram Durani in his message said that the entire Pakistani nation stood shoulder to shoulder with its Kashmiri brethren. The struggle would continue till the independence of occupied Kashmir and Pakistan would continue to support Kashmiris on every international forum, he said.
He called for the restoration of Articles 370 and 35-A in their original form and for an end to the atrocities perpetrated by India on unarmed Kashmiris and for an immediate solution to the Kashmir issue in line with the UN resolutions.
