ISLAMABAD:The Speakers on Friday asked India to meet international standards of justice and fair play by withdrawing the occupation army from Srinagar and all other cities of Indian Held Kashmir.

Addressing an event titled ‘Public Awareness Activity’ organised by Youth Forum for Kashmir (YFK) to commemorate 69th anniversary of a resolution passed by United Nations Security Council on January 05, 1949, supporting the right of Kashmiris’ to decide their future by themselves, through a free and impartial plebiscite under UN Administration. They also highlighted the importance of this day and vowed their full support for the Kashmir cause.

India sought UN help in 1948, culminating in the Security Council Resolution of January 5, 1949.

The speakers insisted that India’s military occupation should end immediately. India must allow Kashmiris to take charge of their government as a first step towards resolving the international dispute in accordance with UNSC Resolutions.

They said Kashmiris do not seek compensation for the wealth they have lost, they do not demand financial aid to help them better their lives. The people as resilient as Kashmiris just want their Right To Self-Determination.

European Parliament, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, OSCE, ASEAN, SAARC, the Arab League, and the OIC were asked to recognize the right of Kashmiri people to Self-Determination, and view it as the unfinished agenda of the freedom movement that led to the independence of both Pakistan and Indian in 1947 through a democratic and legal struggle where people voted to join either Pakistan or India after the departure of British forces from the region.

Speakers included Murad Saeed-Member National Assembly, Ms. Mushaal Hussein Mullick-Wife of Senior Hurriyat Leader Yaseen Malik, Sami Ibraheem-Famous TV Host, Abid Abbasi-Incharge National Press Club Rawalpindi, Ahmed Quraishi-Executive Director YFK–International Kashmir Lobby Group (Youth Forum For Kashmir), and others.

He criticized the decision of govt. to allow Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother and wife to meet him, while Ms Mushaal Hussein Mullick is not allowed by India to go to Indian-occupied Kashmir to meet her husband.

Ms. Mushaal Hussein Mullick appreciated YFK’s struggle for the just cause of Kashmir and said that she is not here to discuss personal life’s issues but Kashmir. She said that we must focus on Kashmir and keep highlighting the cause in every available platform for the fundamental rights of innocent Kashmiris.
