Says India starts hatching spate of conspiracies against Pakistan soon after 1947

Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi re-gretted that India started hatching a spate of conspiracies against Pakistan soon after 1947. It sabotaged regional peace by intruding into the state of Kashmir and peace was also compromised by hatch-ing a conspiracy in Palestine. Kashmir is a jugular vein and Pakistan is incomplete without it.

While addressing the Kashmir Exploitation Day ceremony at 90-SQA, he said that former prime minister Imran Khan vigorously projected the core Kashmir issue at the international forum. I pay trib-utes to him for effectively highlighting the Kashmir issue at the UN General Assembly, he added. Paki-stan has a deep-rooted relationship with Kashmiris and their just struggle for the liberation of Indian Occupied Kashmir will continue. He lamented that India has gone to every limit in its continued state sponsored oppression in Occupied Kashmir. Now, even Indian organizations have stood up against the oppression of the Kashmiris, he mentioned.

The CM stressed that important member countries of OIC should play their full role in the resolution of the Kashmir conflict. Until we do not do something ourselves, no one will come to our help, he remarked. Voices are being raised, all over the world, about the worst lockdown in Occupied Kashmir, he noted.

The voice is also raised in the British parliament on the Kashmir issue and I am sure that time is not far when occupied Kashmir will be liberated. Pervaiz Elahi said that Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik has made immense sacrifices in the freedom struggle. Yasin Malik is being treated inhumanely in jail and he is not given the right to a fair trial, he regretted. Yasin Malik is on hunger strike in jail and his condition is bad. He said that it is extreme cruelty that people are shot by forcing them out of their homes in Occupied Kashmir. In some places, the Indian Army has refused to fire innocent people and international organizations are also concerned about the situation in Occupied Kashmir. Turkiye and Pakistan have raised their strong voices on the Kashmir issue; he noted and paid tributes to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

The CM stated that the whole of Pakistan is with Kashmiris in their struggle for the freedom of occupied Kashmir. Pakistan will not back down in the legitimate struggle of the Kashmiris and will support the Kashmiris till success is not achieved.

Hurriyat leader Engr Mushtaq Ahmad Shah also addressed the event. Dr Yasmin Rashid MPA, Kashmiri Hurriyat leader Imtiaz Iqbal Wani, President of Overseas Pakistanis Scotland Shabbir Shah, additional chief secretary, additional chief secretary (home), information secretary, deputy commissioner Lahore and others attended the ceremony.
