We express solidarity with Kashmiri people and Pakistan will continue its moral, political and diplomatic support to people of Kashmir. Media is an effective source to highlight Kashmir dispute. Kashmir movement gained momentum after the killing of Burhan Wani. Pakistani youth must utilize social media effectively to highlight Indian viciousness in Kashmir.
Dr. Pervaiz Iqbal Cheema- IR Expert
United Nations is mainly responsible to resolve Kashmir dispute in accordance with its own resolutions. The world powers need to force United Nations to resolve this core dispute. Kashmiris should be given the right to self-determination. Pakistan is among the countries that have been supporting Kashmir cause effectively. Muslim countries should pressurize United Nations to force India to stop brutalities in Indian Occupied Kashmir. India has never expressed consistent approach towards resolving Kashmir dispute through dialogue. Bajees Tahir has rightly said that war is not a solution to any problem so this issue must be resolved through dialogue.

Such courtâ€™s decision may advance for sometimes. It is possible that even these courts may support Donald Trump decisions. However, the protests of United States people may force Donald Trump to change his decisions. So far, Trump is making decision as he committed during his election campaign. In case, Trump takes back his executive order, it might be possible that the supporters of Trump may start opposing his decisions. He has to review his foreign policies. Trump attitude towards other leader including Australian Prime Minister is not fair at all.
Dr. A.Z. Hilali- Senior Analyst
The executive orders of Donald Trump are being opposed within United States. The people came on roads and protested against Trumpâ€™s policies. Now, United States courts are also issuing emergency stay on Trumpâ€™s executive orders. Donald Trump has to make decision keeping in view the moral values other than his statements during election campaign slogans. Such aggressive decision may lead to anarchy within America and the world. Donald Trump should have to adopt a positive approach towards his foreign policies.
