Sirajul Haq said that in accordance with the formula of the division of the sub-continent, Kashmir was a part of Pakistan but India sent its forces in Kashmir and occupied it by force. He said the Kashmiris had been struggling for liberation for the last seventy years.


The Indian forces had tried every tactic to crush the Liberation movement but had failed. He said that in fact, the Kashmiris were fighting the war of the completion of Pakistan and small children as well as aged Kashmiris were engaged in this struggle. He said that the Pakistan government should stand fully behind the Kashmiris and adopt a fir m and permanent policy in this regard.


The JI chief welcomed the government decision not to attend the OIC meeting and said it was a matter of shame to invite India as a guest of honour at the Islamic world’s forum. He said that instead of looking towards the colonial powers, we should show our trust in Allah.
