Kashmiris speak loudly

157

AZAD Kashmir President Sardar Masood Khan has aptly highlighted that on 19 July 1947, the whole Kashmir State had desired to accede to Pakistan and that spirit still lives strong today. This has been confirmed by the message that Kashmiris all over the world conveyed on the occasion of Accession to Pakistan Day which is observed in renewal of the historical resolution of Kashmir’s accession to Pakistan passed by the people of the State. On that day in 1947, All Jammu Kashmir Muslim Conference in Srinagar demanded of the then Dogra rulers to materialize the accession of the Jammu Kashmir State to Pakistan, honouring the decision and point of view of the majority population of the Muslim majority in the state.
The resolve expressed by Kashmiris was a testimony to the fact that the people of Kashmir had linked their future/destiny with Pakistan and that they would not accept oppressive and repressive policies being adopted by New Delhi to perpetuate its illegal occupation of the state. Indian Government has tried all tactics and machinations to suppress the voice of Kashmiris during the last over one year but in the face of worst kinds of atrocities and illegal moves, people of the state have conveyed their aspirations on Accession to Pakistan Day. Leaders of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC), representing all segments of Kashmiris, have declared that the day when the people of Kashmir achieve their cherished goal of freedom from India was not far off. This is because religiously, geographically and culturally Pakistan and Kashmiris were one and Kashmir has a natural affiliation with Pakistan. On the occasion of Accession to Pakistan Day, Kashmiris have also reaffirmed that Pakistan was incomplete without Kashmir and that they would continue their struggle till realization of their fundamental right of self-determination, as also been guaranteed in relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council, which remain un-implemented due to lopsided approach of the influential powers of the globe. Founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had stated that Kashmir was the jugular vein of Pakistan and Kashmiris have all along been making sacrifices for realization of their goal of accession to Pakistan. Pakistan has also religiously supported the just cause of Kashmiris and this has been renewed by Prime Minister Imran Khan, who declared that we will continue to fight for justice for Kashmiris as they struggle against the brutal and illegal actions of the Hindutva Supremacist Indian Government in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
