MUZAFFARABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan President Dr. Arif Alvi Friday addressed the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly session and paid tribute to the just struggle of the people of the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K) to obtain freedom.
Dr. Arif Alvi visited Muzaffarabad on Friday (today) in connection with Kashmir Day. He said India is playing with fire over the matter of Kashmir, and is going towards destruction. The participants also saluted the will and determination of Kashmiris for their right to self-determination.
The president reaffirmed Pakistan’s determination to continue to extend moral, political and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri people in their struggle for right to self-determination.
Dr. Alvi said, “Pakistan sticks to its principled position on Kashmir dispute whose resolution lies only in the UN Security Council resolutions. Pakistan has always given peace a chance but regretted that India is taking the matters towards deterioration.
“Pakistan-India relations cannot improve without resolution of the lingering dispute. The world can no longer turn its back to the outstanding dispute.
“Pakistan will continue to highlight the Indian disgusting acts at the international forums including the United Nations and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
“India is making attempts to change the demographic structure by deploying nine hundred thousand troops and introducing controversial legislation. Despite all these tactics, the Kashmiri people stand firm in their struggle to get freedom from the cruel Indian clutches.”
The President lamented that India has imposed ban on communications and internet in the occupied territory to hide its crimes. He condemned the use of pellet guns saying these blinded innocent children and women.
The President demanded that India allow the international media to visit the illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to see the ground situation. In addition, action should be taken in the light of the UN Human Rights Commissioner report on Kashmir, he said.
