Islamabad, Mar 25: A delegation of Kashmiri leaders from both sides of the Line of Control called on Jamaat-e-Islami chief Syed Munawar Hassan in Lahore on Monday.
 The delegation led by PaK premier Chaudhary Abdul Majeed, while briefing the JI leadership about the prevailing political situation in Kashmir, said it was important that the political leadership of Pakistan adopts a “unanimous and clear-cut” policy on Kashmir in view of the simmering situation there.
 Hailing the JI’s role and its ‘outright stance’ on Kashmir, the visiting delegates said the party should “redouble its efforts in promoting the Kashmir cause both at the national and international level.” “Jammat can play a vital role in forging broader consensus amongst all the political parties in the country on Kashmir,” they said. “The deteriorating situation in Kashmir demands that all the political parties of Pakistan should highlight Kashmir in their manifestos for the forthcoming general elections besides launching an effective diplomatic campaign at international level to build pressure on India to stop human rights violations there and pave way for peaceful solution of Kashmir dispute.”
 Sources said the Syed Munawar Hassan assured the delegates that Jammat would continue its all-out support to Kashmiris’ legitimate cause.
 Earlier, the delegation visited Karachi where they had a detailed meeting with top leadership of Muthida Quomi Movement. Besides the deputy convener of MQM Farooq Sattar, Nasreen Jaleel and Babar Ghouri were present in the meeting. Sattar said the MQM has a very clear stance on Kashmir. He said his party believes that Kashmir was an “unfinished agenda of the partition of Indo-Pak subcontinent.” Sattar said the right to self-determination was the “inalienable right of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.”
 The Kashmiri leaders also met the Governor of Sindh Dr. Ishrat-ul-Ebad at Governor House and apprised him of the prevailing political and human rights situation in Kashmir.
 The delegation also met chief of Jamaat-e-Islami (Karachi chapter) Muhammad Hussain Mahenti at Idara-e-Noor Haq on Sunday. The delegation comprised Raja Farooq Haider Khan, president of Pakistan Muslim League-N (Kashmir chapter), JI Chief Abdur Rasheed Turrabi, Maulana Saeed Yousuf of JUI-F, Muslim Conference leader Sagheer Chugtai, APHC-M convener, Mehmood Ahmed Saghar, Ghulam Muhammad Safi the convener of APHC-G Pakistan chapter, Rafeeq Dar of Liberation Front and MQM leader Tahir Khokhar.
