AJK President urges overseas Kashmiris to play role in Kashmir solution


The Azad Jammu and Kashmir President, Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, has urged the overseas Kashmiris to play their due role in resolving the lingering dispute of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K).

Barrister Sultan expressed these views while talking to Pamela Malik, Ghazala Khan and Kanwal Khan of the Jammu and Kashmir Self-Determination Movement International, (JKSDMI) (UK), said a press release. He said overseas Kashmiris owed even a greater responsibility vis a vis resolving the Kashmir dispute and highlighting the woeful plight of
their Kashmiri brethren who have been terribly suffering under India’s brutal suppression for the past several decades.

Briefing the visiting delegates about the prevailing political and human rights situation in IIOJK, the AJK president said Kashmiris have been facing the brunt of India’s prolonged military occupation with the utmost courage and resilience.

He said India has turned the occupied territory into a military garrison by deploying over 900,000 military and paramilitary troops. The massive troops’ concentration, he said, has made the life of Kashmiris miserable. NNI
