Kashmir struggle turns into a clash of civilizations: Masood Khan


MIRPUR (AJK) :The AJK President Sardar Masood Khan has said that economically and militarily strong and stable Pakistan is the sole guarantee for the early success of Kashmiri peoples’ struggle for their right to self-determination.

“We must clearly understand that the coming era of new technologies will radically reshape international relations and global alliances. Economic prowess, as always, will determine political clout and strategic weight. If Pakistan is viable economically and strong militarily, only then can we have reasonable hope for getting justice for Kashmiris”, he added, AJK Presidential secretariat said in a news release issued on Saturday.

In an article written for Hilal magazine of the Pakistan Army, he said that the coming age will be of new technologies and these technologies would be the basis of international relations and new global alliances in future. Besides, the same technologies will contribute to the economic stability of any country and its political influence on the international level, according to the Presidential secretariat.

“Our preparations in the economic, military, strategic and diplomatic realm have to be proportionate to the multiple colossal challenges we face.” AJK President stated.

About the latest Indian actions in occupied Kashmir, the AJK president wrote that many new powerful forces had voiced in support of human rights particularly the right of self-determination of the Kashmiri people since 5 August, but regrettably the world powers are still not ready to boldly speak against India because of their specific political and social interests. “When the Kashmiri people absolutely spurned the Indian imperialism in the held territory, they were put behind the bars to silence them but in spite of all-out repression of India, the Kashmiri people have been continuing their protest in one form or the other,” he added.
