Kashmir dispute is the unfinished agenda of the partition of the sub-continent as Pakistanis and Kashmiris share strong religious, historical and cultural bonds.
Resolution passed on 23 March 1940 is the main driving force behind Kashmir freedom struggle, which is a continuation of the Pakistan Movement, said a report released, today, by Kashmir Media Service.
The report maintained that the Kashmiri delegation that had attended 23 March 1940 public event at Lahore, where Pakistan Resolution was passed, had declared that the people of Jammu and Kashmir would be a part of future Muslim state in the region.
Pakistan is committed to continue its support to the Kashmiris’ struggle till they achieve freedom from Indian yoke. Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Imran Khan, in his address to the 48th session of the OIC’s Council of Foreign Minister on Tuesday sought the Muslim Body’s strong support for resolution of the Kashmir dispute. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in his address to the OIC conference said India’s August 05, 2019 actions are in violation of UN resolutions on Kashmir.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has said that the struggling Kashmiris draw inspiration from historic March 23, 1940 resolution and that a strong and stable Pakistan is very important for resolution of the Kashmir dispute.
The report said Pakistan and Kashmir are incomplete without each other and pro-Pakistan slogans raised in IIOJK show oneness of Pakistan and Kashmir. “Kashmiris unfurl Pakistani flags on Pakistan’s national days to show their attachment and love for the country. ‘Kashmir Baney Ga Pakistan’ slogan is the voice of every Kashmiri Muslim,” it added.— INP
