LAHORE - Political leaders hailing from Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir have said the occupied valley will be liberated through Jihad if India refuses to give rights to the Kashmiris, while their peaceful freedom struggle has negated the New Delhis allegations of foreign assistance to the Kashmiri people. Hafiz Abdul Rehman Makki, incharge political affairs Jamaat-ul-Dawaa, former speaker national assembly Chaudhary Ameer Hussain, chief of PML (Zia) Ijaz-ul-Haq, central leader of PPP (AJK) Dewan Ghulam Mohiyudeen and senior leader of All Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference Syed Naseeb Ullah Gardezi expressed these views at a seminar titled 'Kashmirs Freedom Struggle and Role of Pakistan held at Hameed Nizami Hall under the aegis of TheNation, Nawa-i-Waqt and Waqt TV on Monday. They observed India could not be able to survive as an independent state if it failed to understand the message of the Kashmiris peaceful struggle. Hafiz Makki said Pakistan should not hold dialogue with India until New Delhi guarantees independence to the people of held valley. He said our foreign ministers failed to highlight the barbaric acts of the Indian forces in Held Kashmir, adding New Delhi would not have been a candidate for the United Nations Security Council they (ministers) had done their job well. The Dawaas leader said Islamabad deviated from the real and traditional policy on Kashmir during Pervez Musharrafs regime, as India was declared a favourite country, massive visas were issued to the Indian nationals, Samjotha Express was initiated, one-sided ceasefire was decided, fencing of Pak-India border and supporters of the Kashmiris were tagged as terrorists. He said no institution recorded the barbaric acts of the Indian security forces on the Kashmiris to expose the real face of the largest democracy in the world. He observed India would become another Soviet Union if it failed to understand the message of Kashmiri freedom struggle. Hafiz Makki stressed upon the government to restore the confidence of the Kashmiri leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Yaseen Malik and others. Chaudhary Ameer Hussain said it was extremely difficult to differentiate between the Kashmiris freedom struggle and Pakistan Movement, as the Kashmiris were defending the borders of Pakistan without any reward. He observed it was astonishing the Security Council could not see the Indian atrocities in Kashmir and the UNO failed to press India to act upon the resolutions on Kashmir. He said the separatist movements in India would make it difficult for Hindustan to sustain as a single entity. Ameer said Pakistan could play a vital role for their Kashmiri brethren by raising their voice in the Security Council and other world forums. He advised the rulers to mend their ways in order to avert a Tunisia or Egypt-like situation. Ijazul Haq said no Pakistani could think about betraying their Kashmiri brethren, while the role of our governments regarding Kashmir issue was always questionable. He said: We adopted an apologetic behaviour on Kashmir especially after 9/11, while India is continuing its barbaric acts in the Valley for the last several decades. Ijaz said India was involved in creating unrest in tribal belt and Balochistan, while the rulers lack the courage to make this issue an international one However, India continued its campaign to malign Pakistan especially in the Mumbai episode. He stressed upon the government that Held Kashmir should be the only agenda for initiating talks with India. Ijaz said the US had to surrender on the issue of Raymond Davis if our rulers show some courage. Dewan Ghulam Mohiyudeen said that Gilgit Baltistan government and assembly would harm the 'Kashmir Cause, while Gilgit would be part of the discussions whenever serious talks initiated to resolve the Kashmir issue. He said that China always supported Pakistan on Kashmir issue, while India expressed readiness to hold dialogue on the issue with Pakistan only on the insistence of Beijing. He said that ongoing war on terror was not Pakistans war and it was also not in benefit of our country. Syed Naseeb Ullah Gardezi said no ruler had shown enthusiasm like Quaid-i-Azam on the Kashmir issue, while the successors of Quaid should express the same spirit to solve the matter. He observed that process of backtracking on Kashmir issue started with Shimla Agreement and continued till today, while Gilgit Baltistan would damage the cause of Kashmir. The Kashmiri leader observed implementing resolutions of the United Nations on Kashmir would be in the benefit of India. Criticizing Kashmir Committee Chairman Maulana Fazlur Rehman, he said Maulana should improve the working of the committee in order to highlight the issue on regional as well as international level.
