All the political parties of the country supported the Kashmiris’ right of self-determination

Lahore, August 04, 2019 (PPI-OT): Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that Pakistan would accept such a mediation on Kashmir issue which supported plebiscite and the grant of self-determination to the Kashmiris. He was addressing a representative meeting of the overseas Pakistanis at Mansoora. Delegates from twenty different countries attended the meeting.


Sirajul Haq said that all the political parties of the country supported the Kashmiris’ right of self-determination. Therefore, he said, the government should raise the issue in the UN with full force and also appoint a permanent deputy Foreign Minister for highlighting the issue at world level. A separate Kashmir desk should be set up in the Pakistani embassies all over the world.


He urged the government to convene an international conference on Kashmir and added that in case the government did not call such a conference, the JI would do that. Sirajul Haq also demanded of the government to call a meeting of the OIC and requisition an emergent meeting of the UN Security Council on the latest development in Kashmir.


The JI chief said that veteran Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Gilani had warned the Muslim world that India was planning a genocide of the Kashmiris and had increased the number of its troops in the valley and had piled up huge stocks of deadly weapons there. At the same time, India was settling hundreds of thousands of Hindus in Kashmir to convert the Muslim population into a minority. India had also used cluster bombs on civil population. Therefore, it was time that the world community took serious notice of India’s designs.


He said the JI would not accept such a stance on Kashmir as supported India and also helped status quo in the valley because such an attempt would be betraying the Kashmiris. He said that the nation would not abandon the Kashmiris who were fighting the war of the completion of Pakistan. He further said that if India blocked Pakistan’s share of river water, the country would turn into a desert and millions of people would be forced to migrate to other areas.
