United Jihad Council (UJC) Chief Syed Salahuddin on Thursday hailed the Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for "effectively presenting" Pakistan's stance on Kashmir issue at United Nations General Assembly.
In a statement, Salahuddin said the speech delivered by Nawaz Sharif amply indicated that Pakistan has a clear stance that without the resolution of Kashmir issue sustainable peace was not possible in the region.
"The way Pakistan Prime Minister effectively raised the Kashmir issue and talked about right to self-determination of the Kashmiris boosted the morale of people of occupied Kashmir and after a long time they felt Pakistan is not only the party to Kashmir dispute but their advocate and well-wisher as well," he said.
"The speech of Prime Minister was all encompassing and he effectively raised the Kashmir issue and presented solid proposals for promoting global and regional peace and also exposed the brutalities inflicted by India upon people of Kashmir," he said.
He also lauded the role of Turkey and China for backing Pakistan on Kashmir issue.
However, he expressed anguish over the silence maintained by UN chief over Kashmir issue saying that people in Kashmir have lost faith in United Nations.
Salahuddin also warned of "serious ramifications" if India attacked Pakistan in the aftermath of Uri attack.
"On the pretext of Uri attack the warmongers in India are mulling to attack Pakistan. If it happens, it will have serious ramifications for India. People across Kashmir back and support Pakistan," he said.
He also appealed to all the opposition and religious parties of Pakistan to forget their differences and get united for sake of Kashmir freedom struggle.
Salahuddin said that Kashmir as a nation has been suffering immensely at the hands of India from past 70 years, especially after July 8 killing of Burhan Wani.
He appealed to the world community to intervene and help people of Kashmir to get them right to self-determination.
