Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G), Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday appealed Pakistan to call upon the Islamic countries to convene a special summit of OIC exclusively for Kashmir and unanimously impress upon India to concede to the demand of right of self-determination of People of Jammu and Kashmir. 

In a statement here Geelani  thanked the freedom loving countries for raising their voice against the human violations and denying the basic right, right of self determination to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

  He urged the entire Pakistani nation and state to lobby with their allies especially China, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and friends like Iran, Britain and prevail upon them to influence the conduct of New Delhi in Jammu and Kashmir. 

Hailing the bold and courageous stand of China regarding Kashmir Geelani said that China is emerging as the main engine for economic transformation in the region around Kashmir. It needs to be reminded of the importance of influencing Indian intransigence on Kashmir to make us willing partners in collective economic corridor, they are aspiring for. 

Geelani said, "Situation in Jammu and Kashmir will deteriorate further as Delhi's intransigence on the dispute scales up in rhetoric and reality for we believe that peaceful and just resolution of the dispute is the only sustainable option this whole region can endure. Therefore we once again call for an end to the violence in all its forms that Delhi is perpetrating here, since 1947 whether physical, structural, political and cultural. "

He said, "Indian parliament defends its armed forces, communicates and consolidates its untenable position on the disputed nature of the Jammu and Kashmir, we apprehend a far more lethal repression coming for our people in guise of engagement that lacks any moral and political substance."

Geelani said, "We as the representatives of aspiration of freedom of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, once again appeal to the conscience of global community, international forums besides sovereign Muslim nations to exercise their humanitarian duty as members of community of nations and impress upon New Delhi led by inebriated extremists to respect the basic and legitimate basic rights of more than 12 million people of Jammu and Kashmir which stand endorsed by the entire international community but remain in suspended animation at the UN for more than 6 decades now."
