Islamabad, Oct 25: The All Parties Hurriyat Conference (PaK chapter) on Thursday made a passionate appeal to the UN secretary General Ban Ki Moon to help resolve longstanding Kashmir dispute
Through a memorandum presented to the UNMOGIP officials here the APHC representative sought the highest body’s attention towards the early resolution of the issue. In the memorandum the APHC reminded the UNMOGIP of its legal obligations and moral responsibility vis-a-vis Kashmir dispute.
Referring to international covenants, the APHC in a statement said the UN resolutions categorically state that “the final disposition of the state of Jammu and Kashmir will be made in accordance with the will of the people expressed through the democratic method of free and fair plebiscite under the auspicious of the UN”.
“October 27 marks the 66th anniversary of the invasion of the state of Jammu and Kashmir by India. The day is as one of the bleakest chapters in the history of Kashmir,” the statement added.
Expressing concern over the prevailing situation in Kashmir, the APHC also urged the UN Secretary General to appoint a special representative on Kashmir to review the human rights situation in Kashmir.
“The APHC reiterates its call for an end to human rights violations, revocation of black laws enforced in the state,” reads the memorandum presented to the UNMOGIP by the APHC convener Mehmood Ahmed Saghar.
