SRINAGAR: The president of Pakistan-administered Kashmir (PaK), Sardar Masood Khan, on Thursday called Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti a “facilitator in the murder of Kashmiris” and called for her resignation, Geo News reported.
According to the report, the PaK President asked Mehbooba to resign “if she can’t put an end to atrocities on Kashmiris”.
Addressing a news conference with visiting British parliamentarians in Pakistan capital Islamabad, Khan said, “Mehbooba Mufti is a facilitator in the murder of innocent Kashmiris.
“She should resign if she cannot put an end to the atrocities,” the report quoted Khan as saying.
Khan said the British parliamentarians were playing an important role in highlighting the Kashmir issue.
He said the Labour party in particular was at the forefront of the effort and has expressed commitment to play its role in the resolution of the lingering Kashmir issue.
Geo News reported that member of the British parliament Andrew Flint called the Kashmir issue a human rights issue and urged the world to listen to the voices of the Kashmiris.
“I stand with truth. It is the basic right of people to live with freedom and peace. The rest of the world needs to know what is happening in Kashmir,” he said.
Wajid Khan, another member of parliament and part of the delegation, strongly condemned the human rights violations in Kashmir and said the blood of the Kashmiris is “as valuable as that of anyone living in Britain or any other country”, the report stated.
“We want to listen to the Kashmiris’ voices by going there,” he said. “Kashmiris have to decide about their future themselves.”
The delegation said it would request the Indian ambassador to the United Kingdom to allow a fact-finding mission to visit Kashmir, the report quoted Khan as saying.
