NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, May 22: The chief of Jamat-e-Islami Pakistan Syed Munawar Hassan on Tuesday said that the party will continue its support to Kashmir issue unless the people of Kashmir achieve their globally recognized right to self-determination.
The JI chief made these assertions while talking to a delegation of Kashmiri leaders who called on him here on Tuesday. During the meeting that the Kashmiri delegates apprised him of the prevailing political situation and Kashmiris’ concerns vis-à-vis the changing political scenario in the region.
The JI Chief while assuring his party’s full support to Kashmir cause told the visiting delegates that the entire Pakistani nation supported the people of Kashmir.
“Rulers and Governments may have different problems and compulsions but Pakistanis as a nation remained firmly committed to the cause of Kashmir”, he said.
Lauding Kashmiris, Hassan maintained that “after rendering unflinching sacrifices no power on the earth can deprive Kashmiris from realizing their cherished dream of freedom.”
“Use of force was no solution to the problem. India can’t suppress Kashmiris’ just struggle by the dent of force. The right to self-determination was a universally recognised right of the people of Kashmir and therefore it was incumbent on the world community to discharge its moral and legal responsibility by fulfilling the promise made with the people of Kashmir,” he said.
The delegation comprised of JI Chief Abdul Rasheed Turabi, APHC conveners Mehmood Ahmed Saghar and Ghulam Muhammad Safi. The Kashmiri leaders on the occasion hailed the JI’s role vis-à-vis Kashmiris’ ongoing struggle.
