MANSEHRA: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the Kashmiris had been suffering under India’s repression for decades but those coming into power in Azad Kashmir during this period had not able to make AJK base camp for the Kashmir liberation movement.
He was addressing the election meeting of JI candidate Abdul Bari in Mansehra area on Monday.
Sirajul Haq said that the nation had been denied the fruit of the Kashmiris liberation struggle due to the wrong, pro-India policies of the rulers. He said the Pakistani rulers who had forgotten the Kashmir issue simply for trade with India were equally responsible for the massacre of the Kashmiris.
JI chief, Khyber P. Mushtaq Ahmed Khan, and JI Azad Kashmir chief Abdur Rashid Turabi, and the JI candidate Abdul Bari also addressed the meeting.
Sirjaul Haq announced that the JI would stage a march from Rawalpindi to the Indian embassy in Islamabad on July 24 and a Azadi Kashmir march from Lahore to Wagha border on July 31.
He urged the Pakistani people to stand united for the liberation of Kashmir and elect honest and God fearing leadership in the coming elections.
The JI chief said that the fifteen million people of Kashmir were the victim of India’s state terrorism. India had been denying the Kashmiris their right to live and additional twenty companies of the Indian army had been called in the valley afresh. He said that India wanted to crush the Kashmiris freedom struggle by brute force but the courageous Kashmiris had foiled the India’s designs.
Sirajul Haq said that the Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had termed Kashmir as the jaguar line of Pakistan. He urged the government to immediately appoint a permanent Foreign Minister and call a meeting of the Foreign Ministers to apprise the world community of the latest situation in Held Kashmir. Delegations comprising prominent leaders of political parties should be sent to the Islamic countries and a meeting of the OIC should be called to enable the Muslim states to evolve a uniform policy of Kashmir.
He said the JI considered the liberation of Kashmir as the issue of life and death for the country and the nation and would stand by the Kashmiris to the last breath and last drop of its blood.
