World bound to help Kashmir: Mirwaiz
Middle East Leaders Support K-Struggle
Geneva, Mar 13: The Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Sunday stated that the international community is bound to uphold human rights and resolve Kashmir and other disputes which cause human sufferings.
Mirwaiz was addressing the delegates and representatives of different countries at the 16th Human Rights Council in Geneva. “The World community can’t shy away from its responsibility of upholding human rights and finding solutions to various disputes around the world which are causing human suffering and pain, be it Kashmir, Palestine or Afghanistan,” he said.
On the occasion, most of the leaders from the Middle-East supported the right to self-determination (RSD) of Kashmiris and emphasized that the world community can’t act as mute spectators to the miseries of Kashmiri people.
The leaders included Muhammad Abdel Wahid Ghanem, exiled Egyptian leader, Dr Waleed Albanany Leader of the Al-Nahda Movement in Tunisia, Logman Ahmadi leader Congress of Nationalities for the Federated Iran and Dr Ayman Ahmed Ali of Egypt. Later Mirwaiz thanked the leaders for supporting the cause of Kashmiris.
Mirwaiz had left for London in January this year to participate in a series of seminars there. He also participated in the ‘Middle Eastern Hospitality Meeting’ during the 59th National Prayer Breakfast (NPB) in Washington. The function was also addressed by US President Barrack Hussain Obama. A Hurriyat spokesman said Mirwaiz has concluded his visit to Geneva and will shortly return to Kashmir.
