NSF rally in Muzaffarabad decries UN resolutions on Kashmir
Muzaffarabad, Jan 6: Activists of pro-independence National Students Federation (NSF) held a rally here on Saturday to express their rejection of the January 5, 1949 UN Security Council resolution on Kashmir for “divesting the Kashmiris of their right to complete independence of their motherland.”
The rally started from Upper Adda with NSF activists, holding red party flags, chanting slogans against accession of the state of Jammu and Kashmir to any of the two South Asian neighbours – Pakistan and India.
“Please break the forced relations. Leave our Kashmir,” they shouted.
The NSF rally followed same route from where activists of Hizbul Mujahideen had earlier paraded. However, the administration did not allow them to get closer to the press club where HM Supreme Commander Syed Salahuddin was addressing a crowded press conference.
Angry NSF activists staged a sit-in on the main thoroughfare for about an hour, blocking movement of traffic. However, later they dispersed peacefully.
Speaking to reporters on the occasion, NSF secretary general Kamran Baig and others said every conscientious Kashmiri rejected the January 5, 1949 resolution because it had restricted the right to self determination of the Kashmiri people to accession with India or Pakistan.
“For the last 65 years, Kashmiris are being blackmailed in the name of their freedom. Today the elements who raised their properties and bank balances on the bodies of around 100,000 Kashmiri martyrs are again out to play a dirty game which we condemn vehemently,” Baig said.
He said his organization would resist all such moves aimed at disintegrating the state of Kashmir by forces “inimical to true freedom of Kashmiris.”
In Chattar area, which is home to all government offices, a function was held under the aegis of government to mark Right to Self Determination Day.
Led by minister for information Bazil Ali Naqvi and minister for rehabilitation Abdul Majid Khan, participants of the function later marched towards the UN Military Mission where a memorandum calling for early implementation of UN resolutions on Kashmir was delivered.
