SRINAGAR: Hailing the Kashmir centric speech at the United Nations by Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, the United Jihad Council (UJC) on Saturday said the Pak premier “truly represented” the aspirations of Kashmiri people and “exposed the hollow and grim picture” of Indian democracy.
“(The) freedom loving people of Kashmir wholeheartedly thank the Pakistan Prime Minister (for) exposing India and presenting the Kashmir picture in a true way,” a local news agency CNS quoted UJC chief Syed Salahuddin as saying while presiding the conglomerate’s high level meeting.
“Pakistan Prime Minister while highlighting the atrocities of India in Kashmir gave a clear message to the world that long lasting peace in the region is impossible without the final resolution of Kashmir issue,” Salahuddin said.
He hailed Abbasi for urging upon United Nations to nominate a special envoy for the implementation of UN resolutions on Kashmir.
“(The) UN has miserably failed to resolve Kashmir issue and this failure has resulted into the sufferings of Kashmiri people. If world bodies will still act as mute spectators, the day is not far away when world institutions will lose credibility,” the UJC chief said.
He impressed upon Pakistan to be more energetic and active on diplomatic front “to expose Indian atrocities” in Kashmir.
Salahuddin also expressed grief over the inaction of Muslim world vis-à-vis Rohingya genocide in Myanmar. “Nobel Peace Prize recipient Aung San Sui Kyi is threatening the world and (is still) taken as (a) peace loving politician. Those who believe in system and seek help from UN are labelled as terrorists. This is sheer duplicity and this trend will tarnish the sanctity of institutions like United Nations,” he said.
During the meeting, tributes were paid to those killed in Kashmir and it was reiterated that the ongoing freedom struggle will continue till it is taken to its logical conclusion, the statement said.
