AJK President urges expatriates to highlight Kashmiris’ plight

New Jersey, US, September 22 (KMS): The President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, has urged Kashmiri expatriates to redouble their efforts to highlight Kashmir cause and expose atrocities committed by the Indian forces in Indian illegally occupied Jammu & Kashmir.

Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry was addressing a reception hosted in his honour by a local Kashmir community leader in New Jersey (US).

The function was also addressed by Kashmiri diaspora members, including Sardar Imtiaz, Chaudhry Rashid, Mohammad Akhlaq, Dr Ilyas and Mir Zarshed.

Highlighting the terrible situation in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the President said: “People in Kashmir are struggling for the freedom of their homeland from Indian unlawful occupation.”

Under the given circumstances, he said that there was a dire need for the US to play its role in influencing the government of India to shun violence over oppressed Kashmiris and implement the UNSC resolutions that guaranteed the right to self-determination to the Kashmiri people.

The AJK president said that on 24th September Kashmiri diaspora community would gather at Capitol Hill to lodge a strong protest against the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to draw the world’s attention towards the ongoing Indian brutalities in the occupied territory.

He said that Kashmiris settled all across the United States should participate in the demonstration to send a clear message to India that it could not suppress the Kashmiri people and their passion for freedom by the use of force.
