‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’ was organized today in the Embassy of Pakistan, Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
The event started with the recitation of Holy Quran, followed by playing of national anthems of Pakistan and Azad Jammu & Kashmir. Special messages of the President, Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Pakistan were read out by Ambassador Imran Haider, Counsellor Muhammad Afzal and Third Secretary Imad Naseem.
Ambassador Imran Haider highlighted that the Jammu and Kashmir dispute is one of the oldest items on the agenda of the UN Security Council. The dispute remains unresolved due to India’s obstinate refusal to honour its commitments and its violation of the fundamental human rights and international law.
He added that despite overwhelming odds, tyranny, the Kashmiri people have persisted and stood firm in the face of continuing Indian campaign of brutalization. Inhuman tactics and draconian laws are being used to perpetuate the illegal occupation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). Over 900,000 Indian occupation forces have turned IIOJK into an open prison. Yet, the desperation of RSS-BJP dispensation to control the indigenous Kashmiri movement has completely run aground.
Speakers highlighted India’s illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019 were in blatant violation of international law including UN Charter, 4th Geneva Convention and the relevant UN Security Council resolution which stipulate that the final disposition of the State of Jammu and Kashmir will be made in accordance with the will of the people the Kashmiri people.
India has embarked upon the depopulation of Kashmir Muslims by confiscating their land and brings non-Kashmiris to settle in IIOJK.
To raise awareness about the plight of the innocent Kashmiris in IIOJK, a special documentary prepared by the Mission in Russian language highlighting brutalities being committed by the Indian occupying forces was screened.
A pictorial exhibition depicting grave human rights violations in IIOJK was also organized.
