Mirpur, March 20 (KMS): The Prime Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Sardar Tanveer Ilyas Khan, has said that the international community should play its role to help resolve the lingering Kashmir dispute to ensure durable peace in the region.
Sardar Tanveer Ilyas Khan in his statement issued in Mirpur on Monday said Kashmiris have been struggling for the last seven decades to achieve their right promised to them by the United Nations.
He said that there was a dire need to adopt a coherent and proactive policy to highlight the Kashmir freedom movement at the international level and expose India’s ugly face before the world.
Referring to the changing regional scenario, he said, “We must take full advantage of the important developments taking place in the region.”
Appreciating the fearless advocacy of Kashmiris’ right to self-determination by Pakistan, he said: “Pakistan has consistently and effectively raised the Kashmir dispute at the diplomatic level”. He, however, maintained that a strong and economically vibrant Pakistan could represent Kashmiris better at the global level.
Condemning India’s prolonged military occupation of Kashmir, he said India has shamelessly held Kashmiris hostage by the dint of force. “Innocent Kashmiris are being ruthlessly killed daily by the trigger-happy forces of India”, he added.
He said that after the abrogation of Article 370 and 35A, the Modi government was hatching conspiracy after conspiracy to change the demography of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir with a view to turning Muslim majority into a minority.
The AJK Prime Minister said despite all the tactics, the Indian government has miserably failed to suppress the freedom movement in occupied Kashmir.
Terming Pakistan as the ultimate destination of the people of IIOJK, he said that Kashmiris hate India to the core and want to join Pakistan.
