SRINAGAR: Rejecting to the statement made by India’s foreign secretary, Vikas Swaroop, chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Syedah Aasiyeh Andrabi, on Thursday said that “repeated lies” from the government of India can’t change the disputed nature of Kashmir.
She was reacting to the latest statement made by Swaroop in which he said that “JK is India’s integral part and all efforts made by Pakistan can’t change its status”.
“This man must know that if India is holding Kashmir for the past seven decades, it is only because by its armed might or with the collaboration of some stooges whose only interest is to rule Kashmir. World knows this reality and the rants and rhetoric won’t change the fact that JK is a disputed territory,” she said in a statement issued here.
She said that in opposition, the pro-India politicians accept that JK is a disputed territory.
“India must understand that the majority population in JK has never accepted the Indian occupation and they will never do so in future. People here have been struggling from the past seven decades and the ongoing resistance movement is an extension of the struggle that will see an end to the illegal Indian rule in JK.
“We have given lakhs of sacrifices and we will continue to do so if required to see Kashmir free of Indian occupation.” She said.
She said that despite a “clear rejection” by the people of JK, India was “shamelessly occupying” Kashmir with “brute force” and then making “false claims about this disputed territory”.
“India must understand the oppression will come to an end one day and that day, no matter how many lies India spreads about Kashmir, the world will come to know JK is a disputed territory which needs to be free of Indian occupation.” she added.
“It is better for India to know that whenever a child of ours achieved martyrdom in the last two months, his coffin was covered with a Pakistan flag. This is a clear message to India that Kashmiris, because of the Islamic and cultural proximity, want to be with Pakistan and not India,” she added.
Dukhtaran chief also condemned the ban imposed by the government on local cable channels.
“On one hand these puppets claim that situation in Kashmir was normal and on the other hand, they are banning every source that could take the voice of muzzled Kashmiris to the outside world. They are enforcing normalcy through the barrel of gun,” she added.
