SRINAGAR: Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Syedah Aasiyeh Andrabi, on Monday urged Pakistan and all other member countries of the UNGA to take “all possible measures” during the upcoming session to forced India to grant Kashmiris their right to self-determine.
“Kashmir is the most sensitive and burning issue in South Asia. Lakhs of people including innocent Kashmiris, Mujahedeen and Indian armed forces have died during this 7-decade-old conflict,” she said in a statement issued here.
“The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mian Nawaz Sharif, is duty bound to make all the member countries of UNGA understand that Kashmiris have to be given their right to self-determination. Other members must also understand the need of resolving this issue and must impress upon India to shun the stubborn attitude and give Kashmiris the right to self-determine their future,” she said.
Andrabi said that in wake of the Uri attack, India has “unleashed serious propaganda” to “sabotage” the Pakistani “efforts to highlight the pain and misery of Kashmiris”.
“Kashmiris know that India can stoop to any level of shamelessness and can employ all cheap means to keep Kashmir occupied. It isn’t bothered about the bloodshed of Kashmiris as well of its own soldiers, and will resort to any means to further the illegal occupation,” she said.
“This is the reason that Indian politicians have resorted to rants and false propaganda against Pakistan after the attack in Uri on Sunday. Pakistan and the world must understand Indian deception and must take all effective measures towards resolving this long-pending issue,” she added.
She said that like France, other countries must also take a realistic stand while issuing statements regarding Kashmir.
She said that the world must understand the sensitivity of this issue and must stop India from politicking over it.
“Bloodshed of not only innocent Kashmiris continue but Indian soldiers too are dying. So, the common people of India, its armed forces and its civil society must understand that the blood will be continuously spilled unless and until India shuns it’s stubborn Kashmir policy and leaves Kashmir,” she added.
