ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani has reiterated the government’s resolve to continue extending moral, diplomatic and political support to the Kashmir people in their struggle for self-determination. He urged the international community to take notice of gross human rights violations in the Indian-held Kashmir and pressurize India to put an end to the repression of the Kashmiri people.
Durable peace and stability in South Asia, he added, was linked to peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute in line with the UN’s resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people. The Prime Minister expressed these views in his meeting with Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman, chairman of Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir, who called on him on Saturday at the PM House.
Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman apprised the Prime Minister about the Committee’s meeting with the leadership of All Parties Hurriyat Conference. He informed that during the meeting, the delegation threw light on the indigenous and people-led character of the recent uprising against the atrocities of the Indian security forces.
He said that the Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir assured the Hurriyat delegation of Pakistan’s complete support and solidarity with the Kashmiri people in their just cause.
The chairman of the Parliamentary Committee of Kashmir also briefed the Prime Minister about various proposals and recommendations to highlight the human rights violations in the occupied Kashmir at various international forums prior to the upcoming visit of the US president to India.-SANA
