The APHC leaders said, the ongoing freedom movement, which reflects the sentiments of the general populace of IIOJK, will continue till the implementation of the UN resolutions.

The leaders maintained that the Narendra Modi-led Indian government must remember that the people struggling for freedom cannot be linked to terrorism. They said, the Modi regime will not be able to suppress the just struggle of Kashmiri people by resorting to violent repression in IIOJK. They added that the international community must support the Kashmiris’ freedom struggle and fulfill its responsibilities regarding holding of a plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir.
