To mark the Youm – e – Ishtehsal, the Embassy hosted a Seminar at the Chancery premises today. The event was attended by participants from different walks of life including key Jordanian notables, Academia, Media, Think tanks, Pakistani community members and the Officers and Officials of the Mission.
The event was marked by speeches in Arabic and English by prominent personalities, on the regional situation facing the Ummah in general and Kashmir in particular. Taking note of the cordial and brotherly relations between the two countries grounded in bonds of religion, culture and history, the Speakers praised Pakistan as a country of strong and brave Muslims and how it was at the forefront in supporting Muslim causes, with Kashmir cause and the Palestine cause in particular. They also acknowledged pain and suffering of the Kashmiri people and compared its similarity with the Palestinian cause.
The Speakers emphasized that Jammu & Kashmir along with Palestine are the two core issues of the Muslim Ummah and the resolution of both as per the UN Security Council resolutions is indispensable for global peace and stability and urged the international community to take notice of crimes against humanity against the defenseless Kashmiris and Palestinians.
The Ambassador in his keynote address shed light on the Kashmir cause as well as plight and sacrifices of our Kashmiri brethren in their just fight for their right of self-determination and the ironic occupation by the so-called largest democracy of the world and denial of the right of self-determination to Kashmiri people.
The Ambassador also highlighted the flagrant human rights violations committed by Indian occupation forces in IIOJK and the gruesome act of using pellet guns against Kashmiris which has caused life-long disabilities including permanent blindness. Indian illegal actions post 5 August 2019 and continued inhumane lockdown in IIOJK, were a particular focus of the event. In the end, he thanked the Government and the people of Jordan for their continued support on Kashmir issue.
