Srinagar: Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) on Thursday appealed the government and the people of Pakistan to observe April 6 – Kashmir Solidarity Day, in such a way that “the world as well as the people of Jammu and Kashmir should feel that Pakistan is with the people of Kashmir’.
“Every men, women, old and young should be on roads and should make the people of Jammu and Kashmir feel that Pakistan is with Kashmiris. Mere declarations and statements won’t do. Pakistan has to show that Kashmir struggle is a legitimate and Pakistan backs this genuine struggle,” she said in a statement.
She also appealed the people of Jammu and Kashmir to hold peaceful protests so that the world comes “to know that we all are protesting the south Kashmir killings and against the India’s stubbornness over not implementing the UN resolutions.”
“It is my wish that on April 6, we must together tell the world that the people of Jammu and Kashmir be given their right to self-determination, right to plebiscite,” she added.
Andrabi condemned the use of force by police on the innocent students who were protesting civilian and militant killings. “After five days the schools and colleges reopened and we witnessed that students took demonstrations against the Shopian killings,” she said
