Srinagar, June 10, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has urged the United Nations and other world powers including the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China to expedite their moral, diplomatic and political efforts to resolve the Kashmir dispute.
Syed Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar, while strongly reacting to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assertions, which he made while addressing the Maldivian parliament in Male stressed the world powers to deter India from unleashing barbarism, ruthless killings, incarceration of political activists and gross violation of human rights in occupied Kashmir.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his speech while making a tacit reference to the ongoing freedom struggle in occupied Kashmir called for a global conference to tackle what he said the threat of terrorism in the region and around the world.
Rejecting terrorism in all its forms, the veteran Kashmiri leader asked the world powers to differentiate between terrorism and a legitimate movement for right to self-determination and also take a serious note of Indian state terrorism tin occupied Kashmir to suppress the popular demand for civil liberty and freedom from forced subjugation.
The APHC chairman termed Modi’s speech a blatant negation of the hard facts of history of the division of Sub Continent in 1947. He vehemently disproving arguments put forward by Prime Minister Narendra Modi advised Indian Prime Minister not to build castles in the air.“Do not to beat around the bush and do not flee from the reality of Jammu and Kashmir where more or less one million occupational military, paramilitary and police forces have rendered the local population in a hell,” Gilani added.
Terming Kashmir as an outcome of non-compliance of Indian Independence act of 1947, the basic formula for the Partition of India, the APHC leader laid stress on the early resolution of Kashmir issue by granting right to self-determination in a peaceful atmosphere, which has been guaranteed by the United Nations.
Pro-freedom leader castigated the Indian stubbornness of parroting Kashmir as an integral part of it and its illogical rigidity, saying, “We are not segregating any part of India, but are demanding the end of forcible and illegitimate occupation.”
