Srinagar, July 11, 2014 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said that Kashmir is an internationally recognised disputed territory and urged the United Nations to fulfil its responsibility by settling it in accordance with the aspirations of Kashmiri people.
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq addressing a gathering at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar said that Kashmir dispute could be resolved through UN resolutions or tripartite talks between Pakistan, India and the true representatives of Kashmiri people. He said that India was trying to change the disputed nature of Kashmir by utilizing different tactics but would never succeed in its nefarious designs.
The APHC Chairman termed the recent announcement of India that United Nations’ Military Observers Group in India and Pakistan should vacate its office in New Delhi as unrealistic and contrary to ground realities. “This is very unfortunate. Instead of showing courage to resolve the Kashmir issue,” he said.
Paying rich tributes to the martyrs of 1931, Mirwaiz said those valour souls raised against the sufferings of Kashmiris at the hands of despotic and monarchical rule, adding, they fought for the rights of people and laid their lives for the cause started by Mahajr-e-Millat Moulana Yousuf Shah.
In connection with the July 13 martyrdom anniversary, Mirwaiz stated that Hurriyet had chalked out programmes to pay tributes to martyrs. He stated that on July 12 a seminar would be organized to commemorate the martyrs while on July 13, 2014, Hurriyat leaders would lead the rallies from different corners of Kashmir and would converge at historic Jamia Masjid
Meanwhile, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, addressing a gathering in Badgam paid glowing tributes to the martyrs of July 13, 1949 and said that the sacrifices of Kashmiri martyrs would not be allowed go waste. He said that the people of Kashmir had rendered unprecedented sacrifices for Kashmir cause and the ongoing liberation movement would be taken to its logical conclusion at all costs.
