While addressing the participants of rally, the speakers said that Pakistani nation stands with Kashmiri people and will continue every kind of political, diplomatic and moral support till freedom from Indian occupying forces. Kashmir is unresolved agenda of partition plan of British India. Indian forces illegally occupied Jammu & Kashmir through military aggression against the will of people. Afterwards it refused implementing United Nation’s resolutions which dispense the right of self-determination to Kashmiri people. Indian armed forces have martyred thousands of innocent and unarmed Kashmiris, struggling for their independence and rights. Indian military aggression has killed thousands of innocent and unarmed Kashmiris, children have been made orphan and women widows and half widows. Third generation of Kashmiri people is in struggle and raising their voice for independence. Draconian laws have been enforced in Occupied Kashmir by India to suppress the demand for self-determination by the people.

Indian leaders are aware of the fact that Kashmiris would never give up so they have started Hindu settlements in Jammu & Kashmir so that demography of Kashmir is influenced in such a way that Muslim majority could be reduced and in its aftermath the result of any plebiscite could be of their desire.

The Human Rights Watch has documented several failures to ensure protection of human rights in Indian Held Kashmir. The Amnesty International has also pointed out grave human rights violations in the Indian occupied Kashmir by indicating: “The Indian government’s disregard for human rights in Jammu and Kashmir means that the Muslim majority population in the Kashmir valley suffers from the repressive tactics of the security forces in the shape of draconian laws.”

On the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day (5th February), MUSLIM Institute reminds UNO to play its role to resolve the issue according to UNSC resolutions by providing the basic human right (right of self-determination) to the people of Jammu & Kashmir. United Nations should condemn the Indian atrocities in strong words and take measures so that the people of Jammu & Kashmir get their right of self-determination according to UNSC resolutions.
