SIALKOT-Federal Minister for Defence, Water and Power Khawaja Asif urged the international community to use its complete influence for globally pressuring India for the peaceful solution to the burning Kashmir Issue as per the aspirations of the Kashmiris.

Addressing a meeting of the Kashmiri people residing in Sialkot and Narowal districts on the Kashmir’s Accession to Pakistan Day, he said that Pakistan was taking up the issue of mounting Indian atrocities in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir at all the international forums very positively and effectively.

Expressing complete solidarity with the Kashmiri people, Asif said that the oppressed people of the Occupied Jammu and Kashmir wanted to be affiliated with Pakistan and continuous hoisting of the Pakistani flags in the Held Valley shows the determination of the Kashmiri people for the purpose.

Addressing a meeting of the Kashmiri people at Pasrur city here, Federal Minister for Law and Climate Change Zahid Hamid said that the sacrifices of thousands of innocent Kashmiri martyrs would become fruitful, as the sun of freedom of the Held valley from Indian yoke will rise soon.

He expressed complete solidarity with the Kashmiri people. He termed Kashmir a key to peace. Zahid Hamid said that the peace could never be promoted in South Asia without solving the prolonged delayed issue.

MNAs Sahibzada Syed Iftikharul Hassan Shah, Dr Shakeela Luqman, Ch Armughan Subhani and Rana Shamim Ahmed also addressed different public meetings held in their respective areas in Sialkot district. They criticized the imposition of curfew in Occupied Jammu & Kashmir, terming it violation of human rights by the occupant Indian Army.

They said that the sacrifices of Kashmiri would soon become fruitful in shape of freedom of Kashmir.

Jammu & Kashmir Freedom Movement Chairman Dr Zahid Ghani Dar urged the Pakistan government to adopt a clear and solid policy regarding the Kashmir dispute with India. He expressed complete solidarity with the innocent and oppressed people of Occupied Jammu & Kashmir, and said that early peaceful solution to Kashmir dispute has now become vital for ensuring sustainable peace in the Indo-Pak Subcontinent. He added that the prolonged delayed Kashmir dispute has already become a flash point between the two nuclear neighbours.

Jamaat-e-Islami Sialkot Ameer Sheikh Attiqur Rehman and other JI leaders Arshad Mehmood Baggu, Abdul Qadeer Rahi, Shamasul Arifeen and Arif Mehmood Sheikh also expressed grave concern over the rising human rights violations, custodial killings and genocide of the innocent Kashmiri people by the Occupant Indian Army in the Held Valley.
