In occupied Kashmir, Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi has said Friday that the recent actions of the puppet administration of caging all resistance leaders and youth depicted its frustration.
Aasiya Andrabi said this while addressing a function held in Srinagar to celebrate Pakistan’s National Day. “Everyone who is remotely associated with the resistance movement is being arrested, even my house was raided several times for the past one week and several leaders and our youth have been jailed. This only reveals that these puppets are frustrated and scared and have no option but to arrest us rather than facing us,” she said. Aasiya Andrabi said that Kashmiris were celebrating the Pakistan Day on a land that belonged to them. “We are not celebrating this day on someone else’s land but we are celebrating this great day on the land which has been illegally occupied by India and is destined to become part of Pakistan, In sha Allah,” she said.
“Though Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory, the celebrations, once again, is a clear message to India that we want to end all forcible, illegal and sinister relations with it and want to join our beloved country, Pakistan,” she added.
Meanwhile, the DeM spokesperson in a statement said that thousands of party members and other women participated in the progarmmes organized in Srinagar and other district headquarters and celebrated the Pakistan Day with great zeal and enthusiasm. In the programmes, the statement said, the flags of Pakistan were raised and the anthem was sung to express love and solidarity with Pakistan.
The spokesperson said that during these programmes, the Kashmiri women once again pledged to uphold and struggle for the implementation of the resolution which was passed on March 23, 1940 by the Muslims of subcontinent.—KMS
