Hearts of Kashmiris throb-in-unison: Yasin Malik
NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, Apr 30: Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Muhammad Yasin Malik, has said that the international community must not ignore the humanitarian aspect of the Kashmir conflict that had inflicted huge losses and unprecedented sufferings upon the people of the region.
Addressing a gathering at Kotli in Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK) Malik said, “This mammoth gathering of people amply demonstrates the fact that the hearts of Kashmiris living across the divide throb-in-unison.”
He maintained that the aspirations of Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) were one and the same.
He said Kashmiris since 1947 have rendered invaluable sacrifices to keep the movement alive.
To seek a peaceful and honourable solution of decades’ long dispute, he said that people of Kashmir have shown a transition from a violent to non-violent, peaceful movement. “The world community must respect and reciprocate to this unilateral transition shown by the Kashmiris,” he said.
Terming peaceful movements as more powerful than atom bomb, the Malik said that in view of the changes sweeping across the globe there was a dire need to strengthen ongoing peaceful movement on both sides of LoC.
He expressed his concern over the recent sectarian violence in Gilgit Baltistan and urged the Ulema, religious scholars and particularly the people of the region to exhibit complete interfaith harmony to stop bloodshed of innocent people being killed under the garb of sectarianism.
On his arrival at Kotli Malik was accorded a warm welcome by the people of the city popularly known as the city of Masjids (Madeena-ul-Masjid). Despite bad weather thousands of people hailing from different walks of life thronged the city, which was decorated by banners, posters and pictures of JKLF leaders.
The JKLF activists on motorcycles, cars and other vehicles joined Malik’s cavalcade right from Holar to Kotli.
Malik also addressed a gathering at Sahansa and visited refugee camp at Gulpur to express solidarity with Kashmiri migrants.
