Chairperson of Peace and Culture Organisation Mushaal Hussein Mullick on Thursday said that many nations of the world were liberated and referendums under UN supervision were held but unfortunately people of Kashmir were deprived of their birthright to self-determination despite lapse of over seven-decades.
Mushaal, wife of Yasin Malik, in a statement said the Right to Self-Determination Day is observed on both sides of the Line of Control and the world over to remind the UN to fulfill its obligations regarding settlement of the Kashmir dispute under its resolutions including the one passed on January 05, 1949.
She went on to say that Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government was using Indian army establishment and dreaded agencies RAW, Intelligence Bureau, National Investigation Agency and Enforcement Directorate to unleash every kind of oppression to silence the dissenting voices in the occupied valley. She stated that the unresolved Kashmir dispute has become a nuclear flashpoint in South Asia. The Hurriyat said that the people would observe the day with the pledge to continue their liberation struggle till it reached its logical conclusion.
She stated that it was unfortunate that the UN bodies and international community miserably failed to implement its resolutions, resulting in the continued sufferings of the people in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). Mushaal said that hypocrisy of the world and Indian expansionist designs have caused unimaginable destruction in Kashmir and have made peace in South Asia hostage.—INP
