Pakistan to continue supporting Kashmir cause- Durrani PDF Print E-mail
BIRMINGHAM July 26, (APP)-  Pakistan’s Deputy High Commissioner in the UK Asif Durrani has said his country will continue its political, diplomatic and moral support to Kashmiri people’s just struggle for their right to self determination.Speaking at a conference on Kashmir here last evening, he termed India’s occupation of Kashmir morally  and legally illegitimate saying that India will not be able to sustain this occupation for long time. He said Pakistan seeks peaceful and negotiated settlement of Kashmir issue and it will continue to oppose India’s move to get permanent seat at UNSC until it implement Security Council’s resolutions on Kashmir.

The Deputy High Commissioner also eulogized the concerted efforts of Tehreek-e-Kashmir to advocate Kashmir issue with persistency. Earlier, the Kashmiri political leaders resolved to strengthen the struggle for right to self determination of Kashmiri people and called upon Pakistan to adopt a realistic policy for liberation of Kashmir from Indian subjugation.
“Resistance movement against Indian occupation has continued for past two decades and it is as strong as it was twenty years ago,” said Amir, Jamaat-e-Islami Azad Kashmir Abdur Rashid Turrabi while addressing the inaugural session of the conference.
The conference held at Spark Brook Conference Centre of UK’s second largest city was attended by representatives of Kashmiri organizations from UK, Europe, USA and political leaders from Azad Kashmir and Pakistan.
Rejecting the talks between India and Pakistan under present circumstances, Turrabi said bilateral talks between the two countries without Kashmiri representative will yield no result. He said Pakistan is fighting a war against terrorism and as a result Kashmir issue appears to have been put on the back burner.
The JI chief suggested that elected legislative assemblies from two parts of divided Kashmir should pass a resolution simultaneously to show exit to India from the soil of Kashmir.
Expressing his regret over political turmoil in Azad Kashmir, Turrabi demanded restoration of real role of the base camp of Kashmir freedom movement. He said change of four Prime Minister in four years is a shameful act on the part of politicians in Azad Kashmir and urged the Kashmiri community in UK to hold accountable such power hungry politicians.
Speaking on the occasion, member of the upper British House of Lord, Lord Nazir Ahmed called for a more pro-active policy on Kashmir by the present Pakistani Government.
He said Kashmir must have been a priority issue at the recently concluded India-Pakistan foreign ministers talks in Islamabad.
While appreciating efforts of Tehreek-e-Kashmir  in highlighting Kashmir issue in UK and Europe, Lord Nazir suggested that UK and European Union should jointly hold an International Conference on Kashmir to discuss different options for peaceful settlement of this conflict.
President, Tehreek-e-Kashmir (TeK) UK Mohammad Ghalib thanked the delegates from all over UK and Europe and assured full support to the struggling people of Jammu and Kashmir. He said TeK with the help of Pakistani and Kashmiri extended all possible support to our Kashmiri brothers and sisters and same will continue in future.
Presenting a report on gross violation of human rights in Kashmir at the hands of Indian army, Human rights activist Dr. Anjanta Chatterjee told the conference that civil administration and judiciary in Occupied Kashmir is forced to act under Indian occupation army and this was the reason that outside world is unaware of the grave situation of human rights in Kashmir.
She said world human rights bodies and independent media  is not allowed to visit Kashmir valley while  extra-judicial killings, killings in custody, fake encounters, cases of rape and gang rape of women at the hands of the personnel of military and paramilitary often either go unreported or misreported.
President, World Kashmir Freedom Movement, Dr. Ghulam Nabi Mir said people of Jammu and Kashmir are demanding their inalienable right to decide their future and they will not accept anything short of right to self determination. He said Syed Ali Geelani is undisputed leader of Kashmiri people who had fought Indian imperialistic rule throughout his life.
Chairman, Kashmir Centre London ,Prof Nazir Ahmed Shawl said  people of Jammu and Kashmir are real arbitrator of their fate and  only they have right to decide their own fate. He said India will  have to concede before the demand of Kashmiri people by vacating the land of Kashmir.
Vice President, World Kashmir Freedom Movement, Nazir Ahmed Querashi said it was the blood of Kashmiri youth that had brought Kashmir to the limelight. He stressed the need of complete unity in the ranks and files of Kashmir’s political forces.
President Tehreek-e-Kashmir Scotland, Hanif Raja described UNSC resolutions on Kashmir as basic document that recognize Kashmiri peoples’ right to self determination and urged all political forces from both parts of Kashmir to get united on one point agenda of the implementation of those resolutions.
The Respect Party Councillor of the Birmingham City Council, Salma Yaqoob addressing the conference said unresolved Kashmir issue is not only a cause of instability in South Asia but it has posed a serious threat to the global peace.
She said it is collective responsibility of global community to address this issue keeping in view the ground realities.
