The Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President, Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry, urging the Kashmiri and Pakistani diaspora community settled in Ireland to seek support for the Kashmir cause, said that the Irish people can better understand the Kashmir dispute. He expressed these views while addressing a reception hosted in his honour by the Pakistani Overseas Community in Dublin the other day, the AJK President office said.
The ceremony was chaired by Rana Usman Ajmal, President of Pakistan Overseas Community, while Acting Ambassador of Pakistan to Ireland Shahid Khan, Pir Shiraz Hussain and others also addressed. The AJK President, Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry, said Kashmiris living abroad have an important role to play at this crucial phase of the freedom movement. The people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, he said, are going through a difficult situation at the moment as India has unleashed a reign of terror in the territory.
He said that the purpose of his visit to Ireland was to expose the ugly face of India before the Irish Parliament and other forums while presenting the case of 15 million people of Kashmir. He said that under the given situation there was urgent need that the Kashmiris settled in Ireland should expedite their efforts and raise their voice in favour of the oppressed Kashmiri people and urge the international community to force New-Delhi to stop ongoing bloodshed and state terrorism in IIOJK.
“Kashmiris and Pakistanis settled here (Ireland) should play their role in conveying the position of Kashmiri people to the government and people of the Ireland,” he added. —NNI
