Mahathir won hearts of Kashmiri people: Sardar Masood


KUALA LUMPUR [Malaysia]; AJK President Sardar Masood Khan while appreciating Malaysia’s principled stand on the Kashmir issue, has said that the Malaysian leadership had won hearts of the Kashmiri people.

He expressed these views during a meeting with the chief patron of the Malaysian Youth Movement and the Malaysian Minister of State for Industry, trade and investment Mohammad Rafiq Faiza Mohiyuddin here. President of Malaysia Kashmir Youth Movement Sohail Mohammad Qamaruddin was also present on the occasion.

Sardar Masood asserted that the Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad was one of the world leaders who had adopted a solid and principled stand on the Kashmir issue, and the people of Jammu and Kashmir appreciated him.

While referring to Malaysian prime minister’s address to the UN General Assembly, Masood Khan said that Mahathir Mohammad had not only strongly condemned the Indian actions in occupied Kashmir but also described it naked aggression.

The AJK president said that Malaysian Kashmir Youth Movement through advocacy was trying to involve the Malaysian youth in projecting the Kashmir issue, and is preparing the youth to play their role in the humanitarian crisis in occupied Kashmir.

He said that the camps where the Kashmiri youth have been detained are dubbed by the Indian government as de-radicalization camps. Besides, the Indian government was offering financial support to the youth to deter them from the liberation movement. However, the Indian government would never succeed in its attempts, he added.
