Srinagar, February 06, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik and other Hurriyat leaders and organizations have thanked the Pakistani government and its political leadership on behalf of Kashmiri people for extending continued moral, political and diplomatic support to the Kashmiris’ just struggle.
Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar in connection with the Kashmir Solidarity Day said, “On this day, I would like to ask the international community, was it you who said that there could only be a military solution in Afghanistan?”
“Today, the same international community is talking to the Taliban for peace in Afghanistan, because it has understood that no nation can be defeated using military might, and that the solution to all problems lies in talks.”
Yasin Malik said that Kashmiris were being brutalized by aggression. “The international community has understood that military might never leads to any solution. The answer lies in talks,” he said and added that from infants and teenagers to elderly people, nobody is spared. The homes that we build with love and hopes are razed to ground in split seconds. I am appealing to the international community to take the same efforts in resolving the Kashmir issue that they have initiated for Afghanistan,” he added.
Jammu and Kashmir Muslim League also thanked Pakistan for expressing solidarity with the Kashmiri people on February 5. JKML General Secretary, Muhammad Rafiq Ganai, in a statement said, “Observance of the Kashmir Solidarity Day by the Government of Pakistan, its people, media and literary fraternity, political, social and religious bodies is encouraging. We express immense gratitude to them for exhibiting solidarity with their oppressed Kashmiri brethren.”
Jammu and Kashmir Mass Movement Chairperson, Farida Bahenji, in a statement expressed gratitude to Pakistan for raising human rights violations in occupied Kashmir at every world forum.
