Washington, September 04 (KMS): Dr Ghulam Nabi Mir, President of World Kashmir Awareness Forum, has expressed his anguish and grief over the continued killing by Indian forces in occupied Kashmir.

Dr Ghulam Nabi Mir said this while speaking on the subject of “Kashmir: Tale of Subjugation & Resistance” during the 55th Convention of Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Houston, Texas.

He said that a just and lasting settlement of the dispute is possible only through tripartite negotiations between the governments of India and Pakistan and the legitimate leadership of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Dr Mir underscored that the scale of the popular uprising in Kashmir could be judged from the established fact, that on many occasions during the month of July-August 2018, virtually the entire population of Srinagar came out on the streets in an unparalleled demonstrations to protest the attempt by the Indian government to scrap the Article 35-A of the Indian Constitution.

Masoor Javid Khan, former Houston City Council member and the local host of the ISNA Convention, said that the issue of Kashmir was pertaining to self-determination of the Kashmiri people.

MJ Khan pleaded that the right of self-determination of the people of Kashmir had the international sanctity because of the multiple resolutions that were adopted at the United Nations Security Council.

He stated that there must be a just and lasting solution to the dispute in accordance with the United Nations Security Council resolutions and in accordance with the aspirations of the people of Jammu & Kashmir.

Afzal Janjua, community leader and IT specialist from Houston, said that “De facto plebiscite already seems to have taken place in Kashmir. The people appear to have voted with untiring throats, with eyes destroyed or deformed by pellets, and with bodies willing to fall to the ground for what their hearts desire.”

Dr Imtiaz Khan, President of Kashmiri American Council, described the historical facts about Kashmir and expressed serious concern over the silence of the world powers over the genocidal situation in Kashmir.
