Islamabad, March 01 (KMS): The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League (JKPFL) Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has said that India has nefarious designs about Kashmir.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad said recently India in its Hyderabad prison, stoned to death an innocent Pakistani prisoner, Shakirullah, and 45 years back tortured and cut the tongue of a 1965 Pakistani war prisoner, Maqbool Hussain, inflicting on him custodial disappearance for over 40 years against all Geneva protocols and international humanitarian laws.

He said only after four long decades, Maqbool was allowed to walk out of his prison-grave to stun and shock the Pak army officers by reporting at his unit, though he had been turned dump by his Indian army captors. “All eyes were tearful when his unit recognised Maqbool by his belt number. None in Pakistan knew about his captivity in India.” He said there are so many other such ugly instances, adding this being only a tip of an iceberg and Kashmir offers voluminous books of facts on India’s broken promises, molestation of women and all types of reprisals since 1990.

Farooq Rehmani said Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has offered an Olive branch to Delhi by announcing to release the captive Indian pilot of the IAF- Abhnandan to further strengthen his peace resolve and offer of peaceful negotiations with India.

The JKPFL Chairman said as is understood well that the US, China, Saudi Arabia and the UN Secretary General and rest of the nations are on one page regarding de-escalation between Pakistan and India and have mounted their diplomatic and political pressure for many reasons on both countries as in past. Notwithstanding, this must not be under estimated or ignored that Indian regime has very ill designs about peace in the region and also regarding the resolution of the Kashmir dispute – the root cause of tension and escalation in South Asia, he added.

Farooq Rehmani said India wants to continue 30 years old undeclared war of savagery against the innocent Kashmiris to completely curb their struggle for freedom. If in the given conditions de-escalation took shape without Kashmir and Kashmiris, it cannot last long because India will not stop its ruthless war inside the occupied territory and will no doubt gain breathing space to create an upheaval in the centuries old Muslim majority character by implementing its cunning demography plans, he added.

He said the big powers and Muslim states should urge India to fulfill its promises about the right to self-determination or give space to the true political leaders of Kashmir in all negotiations and take political and legal measures towards restoration of basic freedoms in occupied Kashmir.

He said unfortunately India has taken most ugly steps of search and arrest operations across the occupied territory — rounding up and imprisoning hundreds of leaders of Hurriyat – young or old or sick from their beds or has put them under house arrest. “Does it mean peace or war? UN SC, US, UK, Saudi Arabia, who look concerned about the regional escalation should underscore the facts of the conflict and address escalation and Kashmir simultaneously for establishing meaningful and durable peace between Pakistan and India,” he added.
