LAHORE - The government should stop Indian home minister from participating in the Saarc moot next week as a mark of protest against the genocide of Kashmiris at the hands of Indian occupational army, JI secretary general Liaqat Baloch demanded yesterday.

Addressing a press conference at Nasir Bagh, the JI leader made it clear to the governments of Pakistan and India that no talks could bear fruit between the two countries until the resolution of Kashmir issue.

“JI will launch an Azadi March scheduled from Lahore to Wagha border on Sunday (today), led by Sirajul Haq, in connection with JI’s Kashmir solidarity movement,” Baloch announced.

The government should constitute a parliamentary delegation who should visit the five permanent and eleven non permanent members of the UN to highlight the Kashmir issue in the perspective of division formula of subcontinent and UN resolutions guaranteeing right to self-determination to Kashmiris, he further proposed.

He also called for suspending trade and cultural ties with India until New Delhi accepted Kashmir as a disputed territory, withdrew her troops from the valley and released thousands of Kashmiris from jails and secret detention centers.
