Says Indian govt forcing the UN military observer group to leave

The President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, has called for steps to expose India’s disinformation campaign against Kashmir. Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, talking to the media in Khoi Ratta town of Mirpur division, said India is involved in a malicious propaganda campaign by peddling lies to deceive the international community on Kashmir.

“To conceal the crimes and reign of state terrorism of its forces in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian government is forcing the IIOJK-based United Nations Military Observer Group to leave so that the world does not get to know the real situation in and around Kashmir, especially on the Line of Control,” Barrister Sultan said. Earlier, speaking at a reception hosted in his honor in Kotli, he said that soon after the Modi-led fascist Indian government stripped Kashmir of its special status in August 2019, a comprehensive campaign aimed at exposing India’s nefarious game plan was launched by him under which protest demonstrations were held in different European capitals.

The AJK president said that he visited the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and other countries to expose India’s malafide intentions behind the move. “During my visits, I gave a detailed briefing to the international community on the Kashmir dispute and the ongoing human rights abuses in IIOJK,” he said. He added that he had a series of important meetings with top officials of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the United Nations and the US state department and sought their urgent attention towards the deteriorating situation in the occupied territory. “Similarly, I organized a big rally in Washington on the occasion of Black Day on 27 October to seek world attention towards the Kashmir issue”, the president said.

On this occasion, President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, while referring to his recent visit to US, UK and other European countries, said that during these visits he had been able to present and plead the case of Kashmir effectively and sensitizing global community about the early solution of Kashmir dispute. Expressing solidarity with the people of the occupied Kashmir, the AJK president said the day is not far when the occupied Kashmir would be freed from India’s illegal occupation.

He said that since 5th August 2019, Modi government had introduced a series of new laws to pave the way for changing the IIOJK’s demography. He said that redrawing of the electoral map and reorganization of constituencies by the government was meant to install a “Hindu Chief Minister in the occupied territory.
