Azad Jammu and Kashmir President Sardar Masood Khan says the Hindutva doctrine is spearheading genocide in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to cleanse the territory from all Muslims.
He was addressing a webinar titled “Kashmir and Palestine: The destruction of indigenous cultural heritage”, organized by Centre for Middle East and Africa and Institute of Strategic Studies in collaboration with the Macaiddle East Monitor, in Islamabad.
Masood Khan said there is colonialism in the territories of the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and Palestine and the people of both regions feel for each other.
He said the oppressed Palestinian and Kashmiri people are struggling for an end to atrocities and ascertaining their legitimate right to self-determination.
Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Muhammad Farooq Haider Khan has strongly denounced the frequent unprovoked Indian occupational forces firing from across the Line of Control on unarmed civilian population at Dara Sher Khan Sector of Azad Jammu and Kashmir which resulted in martyrdom of an 11-year old local girl, says an official handout issued by the AJK government here late Friday.
The prime minister termed the firing as an act of barbarism by the Indian occupying forces to demoralize the civil population living close to the line of control.
He said despite Indian forces continuing firing and targeting the civilians, the morale of the people of Azad Jammu and Kashmir was high and they would continue their sacrifices for the defence of their motherland.—APP
