Pakistan and Kashmir inter-related: President AJK

WEB DESK : President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Masood Khan has said that Pakistan and Kashmir are inter-related and Pakistan is incomplete until Kashmir becomes part of its territory.

He said that whatever India is doing in Held Kashmir is called genocide and there is no any other terminology for that.

He was addressing a seminar organized by Punjab University Department of Political Science and Centre for South Asian Studies at Al Raazi Hall here on Friday.

PU Vice Chancellor Professor Dr Mujahid Kamran, senior journalist from Indian Occupied Kashmir Murtaza Shibli, Director CSAS Dr Umbreen Javed, faculty members and a large number of students were present on the occasion.

Addressing the seminar, Sardar Masood Khan said that there is no such example of plain and naked brutalities going on in Held Kashmir in any other democratic country. He said they were determined not to surrender on Kashmir.

He said there is no terrorist in Held Kashmir rather unarmed Kashmiris were struggling for their freedom. “This is not Line of Control between Pakistan and India, rather this is Cease-fire Line”, he said.

Sardar Masood stated that India could not attack Pakistan and if she did so, it would be her suicide. He requested students to express solidarity with Kashmiri people via social media and asked faculty members to write scientific research papers on Kashmir issue.

Addressing the seminar, Dr Mujahid Kamran said that it was unfortunate that Pakistani media was repeating Indian narrative on Kashmir.

He said Pakistani media did not expose non-state actors operating in Indian Occupied Kashmir. He said these non-state actors including Village Defence Council and IKWAN were killing innocent Kashmiris with the help of RSS. He said survival of Pakistan required providing all possible help to Kashmiris.

Murtaza Shibli said that as many as 110 Kashmiris had been brutally killed in the last five months in Held Kashmir. He said that in some cases, innocent people were brutally stabbed and stoned to death.

He said that around 1000 Kashmiris were partially and completely blinded in the recent wave of Indian oppression. He said genocide of Kashmiris was going on in slow motion in Occupied Kashmir. He said China was taking keen interest in Kashmir issue and had issued five statements recently.

He said India was not interested in resolving Kashmir issue. He said that Pakistan, Kashmir and Chine must start dialogue process on the issue.

He said Governments of Azad Kashmir and Pakistan should give special diplomatic status to the people of Held Kashmir. He said Pakistan must depoliticize its institutions established for resolving Kashmir issue. Later, PU VC Dr Mujahid Kamran presented souvenir to Sardar Masood Khan.
