World must act to end Indian brutality in Kashmir: Aizaz


WASHINGTON : Pakistan Ambassador to the United

States Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry has said that the international

community must play its role in bringing an end to the

brutality in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

Addressing a seminar entitled “Kashmir: The Seventy Years’

Struggle”, held at the Embassy of Pakistan in Washington on

Sunday to mark Kashmir Black Day (October 27), Aizaz

Chaudhry called upon the international community to take

notice of the human rights violations perpetrated by Indian

occupation forces in Jammu and Kashmir.

He said the events of the last fifteen months, ever since

the death of Kashmiri freedom fighter Burhan Wani, have

proven that the spirit and determination of the Kashmiris

remains unflinching in the face of Indian brutality. He

assured the Kashmiri community that Pakistan will continue

to lend moral, political and diplomatic support to Kashmir

at all international fora.

Highlighting the historical context of the Jammu & Kashmir

Dispute, two distinguished former diplomats, Amb. Touqir

Hussain and former Foreign Secretary Riaz Mohammad Khan drew

the attention of the international community to numerous UN

Security Council resolutions under which the people of

Kashmir have been promised the right to self-determination

through a UN-mandated plebiscite. The two speakers also

emphasized that both governments in India and Pakistan need

to resume dialogue to arrive at a political solution that is

satisfactory to the Kashmiri people.

Kashmiri American Committee Secretary General Sardar

Zulfiqar Khan, former member Azad Jammu & Kashmir Council

Sardar Sawaar Khan and George Washington University

professor Dr. Imtiaz Khan also spoke on the occasion. Each

speaker highlighted the plight of the innocent Kashmiris,

particularly women and children, who continue to face the

wrath of Indian atrocities since the last seventy years.

They called upon human rights organizations to raise their

voice against India’s barbaric acts in the Kashmir Valley.

The Kashmiri representatives reaffirmed the resolve of the

Muslims of Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir to continue their

struggle for freedom from Indian oppression.
