Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that India has blatantly violated human rights by revoking the special status of the occupied state of Jammu and Kashmir and termed the decision an all-out attack on human rights.
Revoking of Article 370 by the Modi government is a robbery of the rights of Kashmiris, the CM said adding that Kashmiris’ right to self-determination could not be suppressed through the illegal step.
He said that the controversial step was, in fact, a madness of the Modi government. The international community should take notice of the most controversial Indian act, he added. He said that the Modi government had turned the serene Kashmir valley into a living hell through its gruesome acts.
The CM said that India had played havoc with the lives of the innocent Kashmiris through state-sponsored terrorism, but every Indian tactic had failed to suppress the voice of the Kashmiri people. He said that the decision made by India to revoke special status of occupied Jammu and Kashmir was a slap in the face of so-called secular India.
The CM said that the military jingoism of the Modi government had put the regional peace at stake and created an environment of fear and trauma in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistani people are firmly standing with Kashmiri brethren and would continue to stand with them through thick and thin, he added.
Meanwhile, Punjab Minister for Public Prosecution Chaudhry Zaheer Ud Din has said that Kashmir is a disputed territory, still India has taken a bigotry stance on Kashmir which is against the all international laws but it can never eliminate the independency of Kashmiri people.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Chaudhry Zaheer Ud Din said that hundreds of thousand innocent citizens have sacrificed their lives for independence and we will not let their sacrifices to go waste.
Citizens of Kashmir will decide their own fate instead of Modi’s led government, he said adding that Indian government has taken an inhumane step by abolishing article 370.
The Provincial Minister further stated that the one sided decision by Indian government is unconstitutional and illegal. This decision will also have a drastic effect on Pak-India relationship too, he maintained. He said, “This barbaric step by Indian government has given air to the independence movement of Kashmiris. This has suppressed up the feelings of independence in Kashmiri people.”
Ch Zaheer Ud Din said that Pakistan will give strong answer to Indian barbarism and will also raise its concerns on international platform. Pakistan will use all options against this illegal act and will continue Kashmiri’s political, diplomatic and moral support, he concluded.
