Int’l Kashmir Conference in PaK on Jan 9: Sardar Attique
Muzaffarabad, Jan 1: An ‘international Kashmir conference’ will be held in the capital of Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK) on January 9 and attended by delegates and participants from more than 30 countries, Prime Minister Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan announced here on Saturday.
Prior to the conference, he told a seminar, a special session of the PaK Legislative Assembly will also be held on January 5 with right to self determination sole item on the agenda.
The seminar was held in a local hotel under the aegis of Kashmir Cell in connection with right to self determination of the Kashmiri people. However, except for a representative of the APHC and two PaK cabinet members, no prominent leader from any other political organization addressed or attended the function.
The prime minister said Kashmir issue was rapidly heading towards its solution as unparalleled sacrifices rendered by the Kashmiris cannot go in vain.
India’s owes its own existence to right to self determination but ironically it has usurped the same right of the Kashmiri people, he said.
He warned that if Kashmir issue was not resolved through peaceful negotiations a nuclear war in the region could hardly be averted.
The PaK premier declared that global events would be organized during 2011 with seminars, rallies and protest demonstrations outside Indian missions to draw the attention of international community towards the implications of unresolved Kashmir issue for world peace.
Khan was of the view that the UN resolutions provided a roadmap for solution to the lingering Kashmir issue and international community was under a moral obligation to get them implemented so that the Kashmiris exercised their right to self determination without further ado.
In a reference to the recent launch of the PML-N in PaK, he said the state based political parties should be protected because they had to represent Kashmir at the negotiating table.
Khan also showered praise on Shaikh Muhammad Abdullah and said regardless of ideological difference one could not deny or overlook his contribution to safeguarding the identity of Kashmir and Kashmiris.
Of Gilgit-Baltistan, he said the area was part and parcel of Kashmir and “we won’t allow anyone to compromise this position.”
