President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhary has urged the Kashmir diaspora in United States (US) to play their effective role for highlighting the plights of their brethren in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhary addressing a public meeting of Kashmiri and Pakistani diaspora in Houston reiterated the pledge on behalf of the Kashmiris staying elsewhere in the world that they would continue their struggle till the achievement of right to self determination.
The public meeting was presided over by Irfan Hassan Chaudhary and was also addressed by Ismahil Shah, Raja Shehbaz, Sardar Rasheed and Chaudhary Ejaz.
Barrister Sultan claimed that he presented the opinions of Kashmiris during meetings with US officials, UN representatives and OIC members and raised the Kashmir dispute on different forums during his stay in the US.
He further claimed that his presentations had helped these leaders to understand different aspects of the lingering Kashmir dispute and now the Indians had gone on the defensive.
He said human rights abuses in IIOJK were at peak nowadays and life of innocent people in the valley had been shortened but Indians must remember that it can’t suppress the people’s commitment for the right to self-determination.—KMS
