Durable peace in South Asia linked to Kashmir settlement: Masarrat Aalam


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, incarcerated All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Chairman, Masarrat Aalam Butt, has said that Kashmir dispute is an unfinished agenda of the partition of Indian sub-continent in 1947.

Masarrat Aalam Butt in a message from New Delhi’s infamous Tihar jail said unless and until the Kashmir dispute is not resolved in accordance with the United Nations Security Council resolutions, peace and the prosperity cannot be achieved in South Asia and the whole world.

The APHC Chairman reiterated the Kashmiris’ pledge to take the ongoing resistance movement to its logical conclusion. He maintained that a people’s movement based on the historical facts, universal legitimacy and moral and political support of the international community is bound to succeed despite the oppressive and suppressive measures adopted by the Indian occupational forces.

Masarrat Aalam Butt also expressed grave con-cern over the deteriorating human rights situation in IIOJK and stressed on the early settlement of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the United Na-tions resolutions.

He urged the UN to take serious cognizance of the use of brute military force by India against the people of IIOJK to suppress their legitimate demand for right to self-determination and put pressure on New Delhi to stop genocide, arbitrary arrests, extra-judicial killings and gross violations of human rights in the occupied territory.—KMS
