In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations including All Parties Hurriyat Conference have called upon the United Nations to save South Asia from turning into a nuclear flashpoint and impending catastrophe by resolving the Kashmir dispute as per its Security Council resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
The APHC General Secretary Molvi Bashir Ahmad on the completion of 72 years of the adoption of January 5, 1949 UN Security Council resolution, today, granting the people of Jammu and Kashmir the right to self-determination, urged the UN to ensure the grant of right to self-determination to the Kashmiri people like it ensured it in East Timor and Southern Sudan. He pointed out that any illegal and immoral action by India cannot impact these resolutions. He said that the silence maintained by the World Body over the sufferings of the Kashmiri people was beyond comprehension.
Molvi Bashir Ahmad said that Indian atrocities were going on in IIOJK and people were sacrificing their lives on a daily basis but the international community seems helpless vis-a-vis India. He called upon the world to hold a referendum in Kashmir in the light of the said UN resolution, adding that Kashmiris were losing one generation.—KMS
