Srinagar, June 14, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani has said that Kashmir dispute is an unfinished agenda of the partition of Indian subcontinent in 1947. Syed Ali Gilani in his presidential address to the Executive Council meeting of the APHC held at Hyderpora in Srinagar said none of the basic three parties to this dispute i.e. India, Pakistan and the people of Kashmir is in a position to avoid any untoward consequences of this visible danger in South Asia. He expressed dismay over the Indian arrogance not to read writing on the wall and resort to the policies of oppression and repression while dealing with the popular voice for right to self-determination.
The APHC Chairman urged the pro-freedom people of the territory to remain vigilant, steadfast and well-disciplined to take the sacred mission of their resistance movement to its logical conclusion and hoped that the freedom-loving people of Kashmir shall never surrender to the military might and pressure of India. “Our movement is a legitimate demand recognized by the United Nations and endorsed by the overwhelming majority of the people of Kashmir,” he said.
Syed Ali Gilani reiterating the crystal clear stance of APHC relating to the conflict resolution through a meaningful dialogue said time and again the people of Kashmir have agreed upon a formula but unfortunately Indian’s stubbornness has remained a stumbling block to go ahead in this direction. “India is still hell bent to suppress the freedom sentiments of the people of Kashmir by engaging its military power so it has become highly imperative for the international community to prevail upon India for an early resolution of Kashmir dispute and fulfill its pledges and commitments as recorded before the United Nations,” he said.
The APHC Chairman castigated Indian forces for grave violation of human rights in occupied Kashmir and demanded a high-level probe by the United Nations and other international rights bodies and setting up of a war crime tribunal to investigate the genocide, rape and molestation of women, destruction of residential houses and other valuable properties and showering of bullets and pellets during the cordon and search operations carried out by the Indian forces against the people of Kashmir.
The meeting paid rich tributes to all the martyrs of freedom movement since 1931 and pledge to leave no stone unturned to lead the movement to achieve its sacred goal. It lauded the steadfastness and patience displayed by political prisoners languishing in jails. It also expressed concern over the plight of denial of basic amenities and condemned the inhuman treatment meted out to the detainees at the hands of cruel jail authorities. The meeting urged the UN to help resolve the Kashmir dispute keeping in view the aspirations of the people of Kashmir.
The meeting was attended by the heads of the constituent parties of APHC or their representatives including Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Bilal Siddiqi, Mohammad Maqbool Magami, Hakeem Abdul Rasheed, Mir Shahid Saleem, Molvi Bashir Irfani, Yasmeen Raja, Zamrooda Habib, Syed Bashir Andrabi, Ghulam Mohammad Nagoo, Syed Mohammad Shafi, Arshad Aziz, Khawaja Firdous Wani, Mohammad Yaseen Aatai, Shaheen Iqbal and Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar.
