The Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has categorically stated that Pakistan will not let anyone take away Kashmir from the Kashmiris. He said this cause and the struggle is just, sacred and non-negotiable.
Addressing a seminar on Kashmir in Islamabad on Wednesday, he reaffirmed Pakistan’s commitment to continue to extend full support to the Kashmiri people in their just struggle for right to self-determination.
On the occasion, Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said Pakistan’s ultimate objective remains the resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute as per the wishes of the Kashmiri people and relevant United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions through a free and impartial plebiscite under the UN auspices.
He commended the resilience of Kashmiri people in the face of Indian atrocities and expressed the confidence that the Kashmiri spirit will ultimately triumph.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi further stated that India wanted to change the demographic structure of the territory in violation of the UNSC resolutions and the international law. He pointed out that India has already issued over 1.8 million bogus domicile certificates to non-Kashmiris to settle them in the IIOJ&K to undermine the plebiscite.
“Hindutva ideology is not only a threat to the Kashmiris but to India’s own nationals as well particularly Muslims. The world is witnessing rise of ultra-nationalism, racism, fascism, religious hatred and intolerance in India,” he added.
On the occasion, the Special Assistant on National Security Division Moeed Yusuf has said the world should push India for a sincere dialogue with Pakistan for the resolution of outstanding Kashmir dispute. He said Pakistan stands for peace.
Moeed Yusuf further stated that Pakistan will continue to expose the true face of India before the world. He said we have provided irrefutable evidence regarding Indian involvement in acts of terrorism inside Pakistan.
Chairman Kashmir Committee Shehryar Afridi said on the occasion that the international academia and universities will be approached in order to build public opinion on Kashmir dispute.
