LAHORE: Deputy chief of the Jamaat-e-Islami, Hafiz Muhammad Idrees, has lauded Interior Minister Nisar Ali khan’s courageous stand rebutting India Home Minister Rajnath’s bid to equate Kashmiris’ liberation movement with terrorism.

Addressing a large Friday congregation here at Mansoora, he said, “Our oppressed mother, sisters and daughters in Kashmir are awaiting another Muhammad Bin Qasim to liberate them from the clutches of Hindu brutes.”

He said the rulers’ slogans and claims on Kashmir were highly pleasing but liberating the Kashmiris from the clutches of India required serious efforts. He said that Kashmir had been a disputed territory but Indian wanted to continue her unlawful occupation there through brute force, shamelessly.

He impressed upon the government to adopt a bold stance on Kashmir in accordance with the sentiments of the nation and make it clear to the world at large that the Kashmir issue must be resolved in accordance with the UN resolutions to ensure world peace and to avoid a destructive war in the region.

Hafiz Muhammad Idrees said that the so called custodians of world peace were totally blind to Indian occupation forces’ brutalities in Held Kashmir.  He said there had been a time when a Muslim ruler had sent young commander Muhammad Bin Qasim to the sub continent on the complaint of a single Muslim woman. However, he said, the present Muslim rulers were deaf to the cries of the Kashmiri children and women.

The JI deputy chief said that the rulers claim of good governance were exposed by the increasing incidents of kidnapping.
