Take Kashmiris on both sides of LoC on board: Zaffar-ul-Haq
NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, July 5: The chairman of Pakistan Muslim League (N) senator Raja Zaffar-ul-Haq has said that before holding dialogue with India, the government of Pakistan should take on board the Kashmiri leadership living on both sides of the line of control.
“It is incumbent on the government and the political forces of the country to come forward with a clear stance on Kashmir to convey a positive message across the LoC,” he said this while talking to APHC leaders in Islamabad Monday.
The former general secretary of Motmar Al-Alam Al-Islami said that his visit to the amalgam’s office was intended to express solidarity with Kashmiris in wake of killings in Valley.
“It is very unfortunate that on one hand India talks about rapprochement and reconciliation with Pakistan but on the other bloodshed and murder of innocent youth continue unabated in Kashmir,” he added.
Speaking on the occasion, Hurriyat representatives briefed the visiting leader about the worsening human rights situation in the Kashmir valley.
They made a passionate appeal to the government as well as the political leadership of Pakistan to impress up on India to put an immediate end to human rights violations in the territory.
In view of the grim situation, they demanded that PML-N should play its pro-active role to mitigate the sufferings of Kashmir people.
Those who spoke on the occasion included, Mehmood Ahmed Saghar, Ghulam Muhammad Safi, Ghulam Nabi Nowsheri, Muzaffar Hussain Shah, Rafique Ahmed Dar and Ishtiaq Hameed.
