“Announces to restore students’ union in the state”
MUZAFFARABAD: (Parliament Times) AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan has urged University students to expose Indian atrocities and human rights abuses against Kashmiris through social media.
Addressing the concluding session of two-day seminar “Karavan-e-Haq-e-Khud Iradiyat” held jointly by AJK University and Kashmir Liberation Cell here on Thursday the Premier observed that students played a pivotal role in all the struggles that were started in the world. He said Universities make the policies and their role is recognized at international level among educational institutions. Burhan Wani and Mannan Wani have set new directions for youth’s struggle, he added.
Mr. Haider said it had been proven in the past 71 years that no one could occupy the hearts and minds of people of Kashmir. “Dialogue with India could never be meaningful or purposeful until India recognizes Kashmir as a dispute. The political leadership of Pakistan should chalk out a comprehensive policy for attaining right to self-determination of Kashmiri people” he said.
Speaking on Gilgit Baltistan the Prime Minister said it is a sensitive issue adding that people of GB got freedom after a long and hard struggle. GB he said is a part of Kashmir. People of GB should be given political and economic rights by Pakistan.
“How long Kashmiris would keep offering sacrifices of their lives and properties. They have been braving against 700,000 Indian militaries that are out to eliminate them from their land. Why the world had opted to keep quiet over tyrannies and state terrorism against Kashmiris in IHK” he questioned.
The PM asked the students to play their role in Kashmir liberation struggle and let the world know what was happening in Occupied Kashmir. “You can write letters to UN Secretary General to implement the world body resolutions on Kashmir granting Kashmiris their right to self-determination” he remarked.
He said people of AJK living near LoC are also offering sacrifices. “They are being targeted by unprovoked shelling from across the border by Indian forces. Most of them were forced to migrate to other areas” he maintained.
The AJK PM on the occasion announced to restore students’ union in the State.
The concluding session of seminar was addressed by President Muslim Conference Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan, head of JKPP Sardar Khalid Ibrahim Khan, Convener APHC Ghulam Muhammad Saffi, Minister of Education Barrister Iftikhar Gillani, MLA Abdur Rashid Turabi, former minister Ch. Muhammad Rashid, PTI leader Khawaja Farooq Ahmed, VC AJK University Prof. Dr. Muhammad Kaleem Abbasi and Secretary Kashmir liberation cell Mansoor Qadir Dar.
