LAHORE - The provincial capital city remained the hub of rallies, seminars, demonstrations, and conferences on Saturday as participants belonging to different political and/or religious parties expressed their solidarity with the people of the Indian Occupied Kashmir. The protesters, joining the Kashmir Day call, reminded the world powers of Indias stubbornness over the UN resolutions for a just settlement of the Kashmir issue. The Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front, the JI, the Amatol Dawaa, the Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadith and some other religio-political parties also set up their camps at various points of the city, especially around The Mall and in front of the Punjab Assembly building. As the rallies were taken out from all the nine towns of the City, once again, as has been the practice in the past, The Mall played the role of a centre, where the angry people can vent their anger. The PML-Q, the PML-Q (Like-Minded Group), the All Pakistan Muslim League, and the Tehrike Insaaf were the parties whose workers observed the day. The participants were holding banners and placards inscribed with slogans against the Indian occupation of Kashmir and in favour of implementing the United Nations resolutions, while the venues of these events were decorated with banners and party flags. The JI had taken out its rally from Nasir Bagh. It was later joined by the Jamaatul Dawaa at The Mall. The JI rally was led by Liaquat Baloch. Meanwhile, senior leader of the Like-Minded and former foreign minister Khursheed Mehmood Kasuri said that India cannot get an important role in the comity of nations if it did not resolve the Kashmir issue. Kasuri expressed these views while addressing a seminar in connection with the Kashmir Solidarity Day, held at the MML- and Like-Mindeds provincial secretariat. He said India should realize the fact regarding the indigenous movement of Kashmiris, as unarmed youth in the Held Valley were neither sent by the ISI nor by the Lashkare-Tayyiba. While telling the audience that the future wars would be fought on the issue of water, he advised India to make joint efforts with Pakistan on water shedding. He said the Indian government was carrying out a campaign of deforestation in the water-shedding areas of the Held Valley. Advising New Delhi to initiate dialogue, he said, Only nuclear status wont help anybody, and the policy on Kashmir should be a blend of enthusiasm and wisdom. The former foreign minister said the PML government was preparing a blue-print for gradually solving the Kashmir issue. Chaudhary Shahbaz Hussain, chief coordinator of the All Pakistan Muslim League, while addressing the function, claimed, The Kashmir issue would have been resolved if Pervez Musharraf was in power today. He said that the Indian premier acknowledged the fact that Musharraf had taken serious steps to resolve the Kashmir issue and India and Pakistan were almost nearing a permanent solution of the problem. The Pakistan Qaumi Party took out a rally from Cantt, which concluded at Lahore Press Club. The Jammu Kashmir Liberation Fronts office bearers set up a camp at the Chairing Cross.
