The world silence would not deter the Kashmiri people struggle against India

Lahore, August 19, 2019 (PPI-OT): Haling the government decision to establish Kashmir desks at Pakistan embassies all over the world, Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq has also called for appointment of full-time deputy foreign minister on Kashmir.


Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Monday, he demanded the government host an international conference on Kashmir. The JI, he announced, was also organizing a “Save Kashmir March” in Peshawar on August 25 to express solidarity with the people of held region.


Siraj asked for unity among political parties on Kashmir cause, regretting the political leadership of Pakistan had so far failed to convey a powerful message to Indian against its naked aggression in the occupied region.


Unfortunately, he added, the government was also trying to intensify political differences. The JI chief expressed concerns over the silence of the world on humanitarian crises unfolding in Kashmir with every day passing. He said there were reports of unavailability of medicines, food and other basis commodities and the curfew entered into the 15th day in entire Kashmir. The international community and human rights organizations, he said, must take notice of it.


He, however, reminded the world that its silent would not deter the Kashmiri people struggle against Indian occupation. Thousands had embraced martyrdom in their seven decades long movement against Indian illegal occupation and now the flag of freedom was in hand of third generation, he said.


He also condemned the veiled threats from Indian defense minister about the use of nuclear weapons. He said Muslims had nothing to fear because they relied on Allah’s help. He said the government should not show any sign of weakness against Indian threats. The Kashmir issue was a matter of life and death for Pakistan as the region was jugular vein of Pakistan, he said. Instead of being afraid from New Delhi’s fake propaganda, the rulers should unite the nation and take bold and practical steps for Kashmir cause, he added.
