Jamaat-e-Islami chief Senator Sirajul Haq has asked the government to lead a freedom convoy towards the Line of Control in support of the besieged people of occupied Kashmir.
‘Kashmiris are under siege for more than 100 days. A human disaster has emerged in the IHK due to the shortage of food and medicines. The only objective of the freedom convoy is to ensure supply of food and medicines to the people of the occupied area,’ said Siraj while addressing a training session of the JI workers at Mansoora on Friday.
‘If the Pakistani government dare not to take some bold steps in support of the Kashmiri brethren and the international community is helpless to even condemn the human rights violations by the Indian forces in the IHK, the under siege people at least deserve to live,’ he said, adding the situation in the held region was turning worst with every day passing and the people were starving to death.
The proposed freedom convoy, he suggested, should comprise of the representatives of the UNO, the OIC and international human rights organizations and it should deliver food and medicines to the Kashmiris at the LoC.
The JI chief termed the government silence on Kashmir dubious, saying the rulers were intentionally allowing India to solidify its position on the held region.
