PaK PM urges int’l community to break silence
Islamabad: “India has been committing the human rights violations in Kashmir and international community should break its silence on these injustices,” said the Prime Minister Pakistan-administered Kashmir (PaK) Raja Farooq Haider while addressing a rally at D-Chowk in Islamabad on Sunday.
A huge rally was taken out from China Chowk to D-Chowk in commemoration of the slain Hizb-ul-Mujahideen commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani, who was killed by Indian forces in Kashmir on July 8, 2016. The rally was organised by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Pakistan Chapter.
Haider said that “Burhan Muzaffar Wani’s martyrdom provides an ample spirit to the freedom movement of innocent Kashmiri people”, RadioPakistan reported.
“Hurriyat leader Asiya Andrabi is the voice of voiceless people and the occupation forces once again violated the UN resolutions by shifting her to New Delhi,” he added.
The PaK PM warned the Government of India to free her immediately otherwise (Indian PM) Modi will be responsible for the situation. “Pakistan is our advocate and we hope that international community will pay attention to the long standing issue of held territory,” he said.
In an exclusive interview with Radio Pakistan, Hurriyat leader Syed Yousuf Naseem said, “Burhan Wani’s martyrdom rally will highlight the ‘cataclysm aftermath’ involving one lakh Kashmiris martyred and so far hundreds of Kashmiris injured by pellet guns and blinded by occupation forces.”
Meanwhile, a declamation contest, in connection with 2nd anniversary of Burhan Wani, was held at city campus of University of PaK.
The contest was titled “Human rights violations in Kashmir and role of International community”. It was arranged by Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Cell.
Addressing the function, PaK Minister for Social Welfare and chairperson National Function Committee Noreen Arif lauded role of Pakistan for raising the issue of Kashmir at every international forum in line with aspirations of Kashmiris.
She said politically stable Pakistan could vociferously plead the cause of Kashmir. “Burhan Muzaffar Wani’s and blood of other martyrs will ultimately bring fruitful results of independence,” she said.
The speakers deplored the “criminal silence” of the international community over “grave human rights violations” by Indian troops in Kashmir.
