Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen secretary general Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jafari has urged the international community to play active role for immediate settlement of decades-old Kashmir issue.
On Pakistan-wide Kashmir Solidarity Day, he alerted that Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir pose existential threat to the world peace. He said that Indian forces were incessantly violating the working boundary of Pakistan and the Line of Control.
MWM leader said that Unprovoked firing inside civilian population at Line of Control and the working boundary by Indian forces was an attempt to divert world attention from the core issue of Kashmir. He said that Indian blame-game against Pakistan was also aimed at hoodwinking international community and public opinion.
Allama Raja Nasir lamented the silence of the big powers of United Nations Security Council on the issue of Kashmir. He said that on the one hand, Indian brutal forces were massacring civilians in occupied Kashmir in a bid to silence their legitimate resistance and on the other UNSC permanent members seemed to have turned a deaf ear to their cries and demand for their inalienable right to self-determination. He called for resolving the Kashmir issue as per wishes of Kashmiri people.
Shia Ulema Council chief Allama Syed Sajid Ali Naqvi has stressed the need to make Kashmiris part of the process that is underway to sort out the Kashmir issue.
“Looking for solution to Kashmir issue cannot come to fruition if the Kashmiris are not made part of that process,” he said in his message on February 5 Kashmir Solidarity Day.
He said that Kashmiris are the linchpin of the process and their cardinal role cannot be denied under any pretext. Pakistan and India talks must include Kashmiri representatives.
“Minus-Kashmiris no solution will be acceptable. Wishes of Kashmiris cannot be ignored because they are party to the issue,” he said.
He advised Indian government to refrain from brinkmanship and aggression and begin serious parleys for earliest settlement of Kashmir issue. He urged India to establish peace by reducing its deployment and refraining from torture and violence in held-Kashmir to pave way for talks in a peaceful environment.
Allama Sajid demanded Muslim countries specially OIC to come forward to help Kashmiri people and win them their legitimate right to self-determination. He asked UNSC to play constructive role to do justice with Kashmiris and get them their right to freedom.
He said Pakistanis are expressing solidarity with people of Kashmir today by staging rallies and holding special programmes.
