Adviser to Prime Minister on Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Qamar Zaman Kaira has urged the United Nations on the occasion of Kashmir Right to Self-Determination Day to ensure the implementation of its resolutions passed for the right of self-determination of Kashmiris.

Thousands of Kashmiris have sacrificed their lives for the great cause, said a press release. He said that today, apart from implementing the resolutions of the United Nations, India is flouting human rights in the occupied valley and not a day passes in Occupied Kashmir when innocent Kashmiri youths are not martyred.

Qamar Zaman Kaira said that India is pursuing Israeli-style policies in Occupied Kashmir and is changing the demography of Occupied Kashmir under the illegal and unilateral measures of August 5, 2019 to reduce the proportion of Muslim population in Occupied Kashmir.

He said that India is trying to achieve its nefarious goals through extrajudicial killings and genocide of Kashmiris. Adviser on Kashmir Affairs said that all these actions of India are in open violation not only of the United Nations but also of all international laws and the Fourth Geneva Convention. He urged the United Nations and the international community to take immediate steps to prevent Indian state terrorism in Occupied Kashmir and fulfill their responsibilities to give Kashmiris their right to self-determination.

Qamar said that he will continue to raise his voice for the Kashmiris’ right to self-determination and will not back down even an inch from their support.
