President of Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJ&K) President Sardar Masood Khan on Friday said fascist Modi has made an historic mistake and the fire he stoked in the Occupied Kashmir is now burning all over India destroying and exposing its so-called ‘secularism.’
While addressing the Kashmir Solidarity Youth Convention organized by the Roots Millennium Education in collaboration with President AJ&K Secretariat, ICTA and Police at the Convention Centre, the AJ&K president said people of the occupied territory have been facing a crisis-like situation due to unprecedented siege of the valley for 46th consecutive day. Hundreds of them have been taken into custody and men, women and children are deprived of the basic facilities and necessities of life.
Special Assistant to PM (SAPM) on Information & Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ahsiq Awan, IG Islamabad Police Amir Zulfiqar Khan, Air Chief Marshal (R) Sohail Aman, Kashmiri leader Mushaal Malik, former ambassador and Chairman Islamabad Institute of Conflict Resolution Maj Gen (R) Raza Muhammad, Executive Editor Pakistan Observer, Gauhar Zahid Malik, Chairman Roots School System Col (R) Mushtaq Rasul Chaudhry, CEO Millennium Education Chaudhry Faisal Mushtaq, wife of the Hurriyat Leader Yaseen Malik Mushaal Hussain Malik and a large number of the faculty members of the Roots school system and students attended the mega event. A number of Kashmiri songs, skits and performances were given on the occasion to warm the audience’s hearts reflecting Pakistani people’s unity on Kashmir.
In his address, Sardar Masood Khan while hitting hard at the Indian Army Chief’s recent statement of attacking AJ&K, said the occupied Jammu and Kashmir would turn into a graveyard burying 900,000 Indian troops who have been perpetuating brutalities against innocent Kashmiris. He particularly mentioned Chairman of Roots School System Col (R) Mushtaq Rasul Chaudhry, Faisal Mushtaq and termed their family’s efforts for the cause of education highly commendable.
Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said Prime Minister Imran Khan was pleading the case of Kashmiris at all international forums as their advocate, ambassador and spokesman.
In his upcoming US visit and the UN address he would raise the voice of the Kashmiris before the international community and tell them about suffering humanity in the occupied valley, she said.
Former Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman while commending the youths for their passion and high spritis, said Kashmir issue should be resolved through dialogue. He pointed out that Pakistan Armed Forces, people and Kashmiris were fully prepared to respond to any Indian misadventure.
“Pakistan has the desire to solve the Kashmir issue through dialogue, and if India opted for war, then Pakistan Armed Forces, people and Kashmiris are ready to respond to any external aggression with full force,” he said.
Earlier, Faisal Mushtaq in his welcome address regarded youth and the civil society as first line of Pakistan’s defence and called upon the youth to identify themselves with Kashmir as it’s a matter of life and death for Pakistan. Develop your own Facebook page, use all your IT skills to highlight the plight of the Kashmir people in the occupied valley, he said as Pakistan is incomplete without Kashmir.
During the youth convention, performances by students of The Millennium Education One World Campus E-11/4, Wahid Campus F-10/2 and Millennium Campus I-9/3, and Future World School Bahria Town Phase-8 Rawalpindi moved the audience to stand and applaud in appreciation.
