APHC leaders review measures to highlight Kashmir issue inside Pakistan and abroad


ISLAMABAD: AJK President Sardar Masood Khan visited the office of the All Party Hurriyat Conference (APHC) here on Friday and discussed the Kashmir issue and future plan of protests and demonstration with the leaders and activists. He assured them that the AJK government in collaboration with the Hurriyat leadership would continue to highlight the ongoing situation what he claimed the “genocide and crimes against humanity” in J&K.

He said that the Jammu and Kashmir was passing through the darkest period of its history but the valiant people under Indian occupation had resolved to plough ahead despite India’s brutalization.

He said that India is trying to project a false image of normalcy and is trying to create and foist a fake political class on the Kashmiris to suppress their aspirations and subjugate Kashmiris.

In his lengthy speech against New Delhi, he stated that India would not succeed in its malicious designs because the people of Jammu and Kashmir in the past 72 years and especially after the illegal steps, taken by India on August 5 and October 31, have spurned India’s illegitimate writ, rule and occupation. India chalks up its failures in the occupied territory to terrorism, whereas the fact, is that Indian soldiers are the terrorists victimizing the people of Jammu and Kashmir, he said.

“India must countermand its decisions taken on August 5 and retrocede the occupied territory to its natives and owners; the Kashmiris”, he said lauding  the efforts of the Hurriyat leadership in J&K for their political activism and their unnerving struggle for freedom from Indian occupation. He said that Syed Ali Gillani had very effectively created a Joint Resistance Leadership, thereby, refuting the India’s narrative that Kashmiris are not united within.

Syed Abdullah Gillani while lauding the efforts of Sardar Masood, said that this interaction provides a great opportunity for us to listen and seek advice on advancing the Jammu and Kashmir issue. He said that the whole leadership of Kashmir stands united and will continue to fight against India’s tyrannical rule.

While welcoming the President to the APHC office, Syed Faiz Naqshbandi appreciated the efforts of the President for raising his voice for the Kashmiri people. He said that Masood Khan during his long diplomatic career had always prioritized the Kashmir issue and fully exploited every opportunity for safeguarding the rights of the people of Kashmir.
