PML-N Sindh takes out rally in support of Kashmiris
The new Sindh Governor Muhammad Zubair adopted a reconciliatory approach, emphasizing that that instead of picking up confrontation, he would try and solve problems of Karachi and province through negotiations and dialogue.
This has been his approach from day one, even before taking oath of the new office last Thursdad. Addressing convocation of a private university, he recalled that there was time when Karachi used to shut at a call within ten minutes. Arson, loot nad plunder, siege around property, houses, marketing centres, was normal phenomenon.
However the successful Karachi operation continuing for well over two years, brought tremendous change in the situation, and Karachi was more peaceful city, and looking forward to regaining its lost prestige.
There was a huge difference between Pakistan or three years ago ad Pakistan of today. He said national was observing solidarity with the Kashmiris in occupied territory,fighting for their rights, and freedom from yoke. Pakistan stood with them, and will continue to support their diplomatically and morall6.
He said that Pakistan did not wish to pick up quarrel over the issue, it wanted peaceful solution to the problem because it was a humanitarian cause and rights of the Kashmiris had been pledged under the UN resolution.
Solution of the problem through negotiations and dialogue, will be beneficial for the people of Pakistan and India. People of both countries will reap the harvest of such an approch.In an obvious dig at the media, Zubair said that from 700 a.m. in the morning till 10.00 p.m. Pakistan was seen in different progressing perspective but after that it was being painted in black. Which is regrettable.
He said Kashmir is the jugular vein and integral part of Pakistan, as he called for the implementation of United Nations resolutions on Kashmir in letter and spirit.
Lasting peace cannot be ensured in the region without accepting the right to self-determination of the people of occupied Kashmir, said Secretary General of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Sindh, Senator Nehal Hashmi, here on Sunday.
Addressing a rally organised by Millat-e-Kashmir Human Rights Organisation to mark Kashmir Day, the senior politician said the government of Pakistan under the able leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif is committed to the cause of Kashmir.
“We are observing the day to express solidarity with our Kashmiri brothers and also to highlight their plight and struggle at international level,” said Nehal Hashmi.
The senior PML-N leader said Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has continuously raised the issue before the United Nations and has frequently been using varied forums to secure support for the due rights of Kashmiris.
He expressed confidence that the struggle by the people of held Kashmir would not go in vain and Kashmiris would soon achieve their goal paving way for lasting peace in South Asia.
Reiterating the support of all Pakistanis, he said people of this part of the world, under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah had been able to secure for themselves an independent Muslim country.
“With the same spirit the people of occupied Kashmir will also succeed in achieving independence for themselves,” he said. Mohammad Naim Khan, another senior PML-N leader, representing Azad Jammu Kashmir said the United Nations must play its role to resolve the conflict.
He said inspirations of the people of occupied Kashmir cannot be muffled and it is heartening to note that the PML-N government under the leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has always been vocal in supporting the Kashmir cause.
“Kashmiris also have high regard for the Prime Minister of Pakistan and this is well reflected through massive victory of the PML-N in the elections in Azad Jammu and Kashmir,” said the Kashmiri leader. “To be honest, Kashmir cause is very close to the heart of all Pakistanis,” he said.
Naim said India must understand that struggle of the Kashmiris cannot be suppressed and the right to self-determination has to be extended to the people. Ilyas Mughal, General Secretary of Millat Kashmir Human Rights Organisation on the occasion said world must abandon its partial approach towards the people of occupied Kashmir.
He also hailed Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif for convincingly raising the issue during his address to the UN General Assembly.
Meanwhile, Mufti Ghulam Ghaus Baghdadi, addressing another rally, taken out by Tehreek Labaik Ya Rasool Allah said independence of Kashmir is crucial for the existence of Pakistan. He said the current situation in the region as well as at international level demands unity in the ranks of the people of Pakistan.
