Overseas Kashmiris are ambassadors for Kashmir Freedom movement: Farooq


MUZAFFARABAD: AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan has said that overseas Kashmiris are ambassadors for Kashmir freedom movement and lauded their role in highlighting the longstanding dispute in its true perspective at international fora.

Talking to the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir International Right to Self Determination Movement, Raja Najabat Hussain who called on him here on Monday, he said the role played by expatriates since August 5 is highly appreciable.

The Prime Minister further said that Kashmiri diaspora is playing an active role in building awareness on the Kashmir cause in their respective countries following India’s illegal action of abrogating the special status of globally acknowledged disputed territory.

He said while exposing the Indian nefarious designs and atrocities of its military and paramilitary forces in the occupied valley, we need to inform world that Kashmiris are striving for their UN acknowledged right to self determination. “India through brute force trying to suppress their indigenous movement”, he added.
